Bouncy and Monsto
From its plinky plonky guitar soundtrack to its vibrant cartoon visuals, Crayon Hero's physics puzzle game Bouncy and Monsto holds few surprises, but gosh if it isn't a cute game for kids. Bouncy's got a taste for stars, which leads to him often being separated from his furry pal Monsto, so in each level you'll have to figure out how to remove or otherwise interact with the scenery in order to get Bouncy safely back to his burly buddy as he rolls and falls. You can remove wooden obstacles by clicking them, detonate bombs to harmlessly give Bouncy an explosive boost, and use warp circles to get around. While its presentation is great, though that guitar track might get repetitive, Bouncy and Monsto might be a bit too kid-friendly for older or simply more experienced players simply because it never really feels like it takes the training wheels off, making it pleasant as all get-out, but not much of a challenge. If you have a fledgling gamer around, however, or simply want something light and pleasant, Bouncy and Monsto is a fun and cheery game of reflexes and puzzling to brighten your day.
The physics in this game seem a little off. Things have a tendency to shake and wobble even when they should be completely stable.
I got stuck in a loop where I won the level, but it kept restarting as if I fell off the map.
It was kind of cute, until I got frustrated about 6 levels in.
You get your first non-clickable stone platform, sitting on top of a longer wooden platform. You have to manage to click on the wood quick enough to get the stone platform over the gap the ball is about to roll into.
Did the same thing about 20 times and all were a tiny bit different, but not successful.
I love it! I will admit to being surprised when things that should be stationary, move about, but that doesn't detract from the game in my eyes. Also, I would play this repeatedly just for the music alone. Short and sweet game!
