A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
The core concept of this game is very simple: Players slide their fingers across strings of matching-colored monsters to create the most, and longest, strings possible in the time limit.
Violence & Scariness
A couple still images depict Plubert, the bad guy, with a menacing demeanor and holding a cartoon ray gun, but he never uses it.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Monster Soup is an inventive puzzle game that takes place in the "Soup System" galaxy. Players are tasked with rescuing the tiny creature inhabitants of the system from an overpowering enemy who aims to freeze everything in the galaxy. Although it is a seemingly involved plot, the gameplay itself is a basic puzzle game in which players slide their fingers across strings of matching-colored creatures. Users can share high scores via the Game Center social network, but participation is optional.
Is It Any Good?
MONSTER SOUP earns its keep because of the cute, cartoon-style aesthetic and the one-of-a-kind storyline, in spite of the fact that the game itself is very basic and simplistic in nature. Additionally, the gameplay mechanic is more aggravating than challenging, since there is no way to prevent the ice from encompassing the screen. It provides little incentive for players to try to master the game. The presentation is well done, and it does offer a unique, different experience. There's just little to no reason to keep coming back to this game time after time.
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.
