Borrowing heavily from Angry Birds and Fragger, MONSTER ISLAND adds an extra layer of cartoon absurdity as characters try to blow up other monsters. There's no story to the game, per se, but it's very well animated. And despite taking some trial and error to master, it's not overly complicated and very welcoming. The problem with the game is it's derivative and doesn't really advance the genre. And the coins you work so hard to collect don't have a lot of use, except for buying unlocks for levels or cheats -- something you likely don't need if you're able to amass coins. (You can also unlock other monsters to play as, but that's nothing that affects gameplay.)

It's a fun diversion and will keep you busy for quite a while, but won't prove to be an all-time great.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
