Default Pixeljunk Monsters

I expected nothing out of this game, but to my surprise, in my opinion this is the most addicting game on the PSN.....and I don't even like strategy games.

If you're not sure about this game, the Japanese store has a downloadable demo. I tried that for about 30 mins, finished it, then bought the game for $7.99. I've been playing it for the past 3 hours and the only reason I'm stopping is I gotta sleep cause it's 2:30 am over here.

it's basically a copy of tower defence (the flash game). but done very well, and very easy on the eyes.

That's a fun one. I was able to beat it the first try without too many problems.

EDIT: I tried one of the extreme maps, now that ones a lot harder!!

Yep, very very addicting...I just finished all of the 'easy' levels last night (not so easy for me being I never play strategy games). Now I'm stuck on Medium level 1. I can't believe how much I've played this game already.

OMG! That game is hard as hell to get to the level 50 on any of them...

I've got to find a better strategy!

A game junkie playing Flash games is like a desperate heroin junkie sniffing glue.
