About This Place

First started in late 2007, Kasey's Mobile Game Review (then just a regular feature of Kasey's Korner) started as a simul-post between here and IGN. Later I realized there's no reason to post it twice, when I can use the traffic on my own site. so, here we are, in 2010, and the mobile game industry has grown a bit. What do you think?

KMGR of "Monsters vs. Aliens"

This mobile adaptation of the movie game is just a platformer. As such, it's not that good, merely average, even though it does look rather cute.

As the name suggested, a bunch of aliens are invading, and Earth's last hope is a bunch of monsters the military had recruited, except everybody looks cute instead of scary. Get the idea? You play as either Ginormica (a VERY large girl in a track suit, as in size of small skyscraper), or the Missing Link, a scrappy fighter who infiltrated the innards of the alien giant robot and have to break various subsystems.

Ginormica basically runs around ground level, dodging alien mines and laser beams, pick up people from top of buildings, jumping past buildings if she can, and basically move as fast as possible. While jumping from building to building is sort of fun, it's actually quite boring as a platforming.

Missing Link, on the other hand, is even MORE boring... He has punch/tailwhip as the weapons, but don't let enemy drones and whatever touch you, nor fall into bad things. Oh, and do all the destruction before the timer expires. How's that for "no pressure"?

There are well over a dozen "challenge" (levels) to try as the role alternate between the two. However, the basic gameplay does not change. Music andsound effects are boring.

Thus, this game is only a 6, and nothing more.

Overall rating: 6 out of 10
Pros: not a bad use of the IP, simple controls
Cons: not a lot of imagination either, dynamics and score never explained.
