Monsterz – arcade puzzle game

Monsterz is a small arcade-style puzzle game similar to Bejeweled, Zookeeper and Zooo.

The goal of the game is to swap monsters on a board in order to create alignments of three or more matching monsters. You earn even more points when a line or row disappears and creates a chain reaction. As levels increase, you get less and less time to find a move.

There are two main modes are available: a standard mode in which a given number of monsters have to be eliminated to proceed to next level, and a puzzle mode in which pieces of a puzzle need to be put together by swapping monsters around. A training mode is also available to practice with any number of different monsters and any speed difficulty.

This game is mostly about luck, but it remains highly addictive.

Features include:

  • Classic – play against the clock and clear a given number of each monster type to reach next level.
  • Puzzle – clear lines of monsters to move pieces around and put together the puzzle.
  • Training – play against the clock in a never ending level, chose the timer difficulty and number of monsters for infinite fun.
