Monster Meltdown could be the start of a new trend in app gaming -- simple teleporting across the screen with minimal controls to learn, but with a fun puzzle element that hooks players. It's a game that seems so simple at first that you wonder why it hasn't been tried before, but the added challenge of completing rounds in just a few teleports while collecting orbs adds a layer of complexity that makes you want to keep going.

Adding in hazards and certain areas that can't be teleported to instantly only makes the game stickier. Blend it with a peppy Russian soundtrack and some really cute monsters and you've got a good game that borders on great. Our only real complaint is with the visual styling of the game, which for some reason is shown as though the player is watching an old VHS tape.
