A Monster Ate My Homework

A physics puzzle... in 3D!... wait, no. A better one sentence summary would be "a carnival milk bottle game... only better and on your computer... and starring adorable monsters!" If only beating the game earned you an inflatable turtle or some oversized novelty sunglasses.

Nice and Enjoyable game, good design, really liked the mechanics, the balls.

But..

For me it got pretty repeatable eventually, the game is pretty easy but it relies on the player to want to achive 3 stars every level, thats atleast how I played til a point I just got bored and started shooting everything, thats when I realised how easy the game actually is.

The graphics are adorable, but I really couldn't be bothered working out why I couldn't knock a monster off a stack of books without knocking the whole thing over.

Fun game. Loved the noises the monsters made.

I actually found it remarkably taxing trying to get the three stars and I thought the game construct was great (graphics, sounds, music and gameplay).

The thing I found the mst refreshing was not having a cap on the amount of balls I fired as that was the most exhilirating aspect of it. Still, have gotten rather stuck with level 17.

Great use of Unity too.

Not working for me. Says no plugin available. Yet I have Java installed, how else could I run a lot of stuff... Any thoughts?

Gemini, you have to look for Unity. A web search should find it fast.

Any clue what the hidden achievement is?

@Gemini: Just underneath the title of every review there's a Platform designation indicating what you need to play the game.

For browser games, there will also be a plug-in info link next to it that you can click to get the latest plug-in version.

Hey dude... EXELENTE game! I haven't played stuff like this in a long while. The game was original, which made it a new experience which is fun. The game had good graphics....which, well, is good of course. The controls were easy, to learn and to use. You could however have made it a bit more challenging.
So yeah, that's what i have to say. A overall score of 4/5 is given because it had all the elements to get to success, except that it was too easy.

I can't get it to load. I have the Unity plug-in, and it starts to load there, but once the Unity screen loads, a blue Monster Ate My Homework screen comes up saying 'Loading...' but no moving parts to indicate (and that disappears if i leave that page).

I'm running Chrome vs. 9 on OS X 10.5.8

Also tried it on Firefox 3.6.13 but that went even worse. I only got the Unity screen telling me 'the content was stopped because a fatal content error has been detected'.

[Try reinstalling the latest Unity plugin. I've just tested the game successfully on OSX 10.5.8 with Chrome 9 and with Firefox 3.6.13. The version of the Unity Player I have installed is: version 2.6.1f3. -Jay]

I'm with cerulean, haven't found any "hidden" stuff to be awarded the achievement.

Any of you have found this?

On the "congratulations" screen you get after you finish, you can get the ability to throw balls by clicking the help icon. At least, you can on the the "perfect" one. I didn't try it on the other one.

I can't find any way to win the pseudo-level, but I can knock the homework over and lose.

Sorry for posting two comments in a row, but I figured out the last achievement. It's:

Shot 300 Balls

Anyone have hints on how to get three stars on in grade 4, levels, 7, 8, 9, 12, 18, 19? These are tough ones for me. Thx.

@NJS:

Level 7: Shoot the front roller off the platform before the large book-stack rolls onto it. Without that roller, the book-stack will come to a halt partway down.

Level 8: Shoot the red monster once, turn your view 180°, and shoot the other red monster once. The apples should be closer to the middle and possibly under some monsters. Now shoot the exploding monster. All the homework should stay on the platform.

Level 9: Wait for the apple to roll about halfway down the ruler, then shoot it a little off center. This should cause the apple to roll off the side of the ruler.

Level 12: Turn your view 45° so you have a shot at the exploding monster and shoot it. All the apples should land on the platform.

Level 18: First, get rid of all the monsters except the black one. The black monster and apple should be in their original positions and the book-stacks will probably be resting on the incline. Now, shoot the apple so it falls onto the incline, shoot the black monster off the platform, and keep shooting the apple to knock it back up the incline. A little bit after the last monster falls, you'll win, and the fact that you couldn't keep the apple from falling forever won't matter.

Level 19: Shoot the black monster from your current view. Aim for the very top so it doesn't disturb the ruler when it goes. If it hits the other book-stack on the way down, aim just a little lower next time. Rotate a bit to the right for a better shot and shoot the green monster. Rotate 180° and shoot the orange monsters a bunch of times. If they fall over slowly they might take the book-stack with them, so you want to knock them out forcefully.

How about knocking off the snark and making with 3-star walkthroughs for 13 to 29?

I was playing on the lvl 9 grade 3 and I hit a hidden switch and the floor tilted and I got an achievement. Now when I try to find it, I can't. Anyone know where it is?

@stupid guy

the switch is on the bottom right under the main play field. If you tilt right you can just see it.

@ Naomi, I have seen those switches and tried every height I can imagine but still can't hit it. I see that it has a place for 2 balls? How did you hit it?
