It's a good-natured game of turf wars as you clear the board of all but the last monster standing in Puzzle Monsters, a strategic puzzle game from Edvent and Almagesta. It begins simply—knock monsters off the board by rolling one into the other, clicking to select the monster you want and dragging in the direction you want it to roll. Soon the challenge increases, requiring a good amount of planning and thought as more crowded configurations, roll stopping grass, and immobile sleeping monsters are added. With 80 levels gently staggered from beginner to expert, redundancy sets in for all but the most ardent puzzle fan while the cutesy characters detract from the ponderous tone. In the same family of gameplay as Steppin' Stones, Puzzle Monsters is a bit like the wacky cousin, sort of off key yet just as enjoyable to interact with around a board game during family fun night.
