MONSTERS ATE MY BIRTHDAY CAKE is heavy on the charm. The puzzles, though not the best you'll ever see, certainly aren't bad. But you can't help but smile at the characters you'll meet throughout the journey, whether it's Groggnar -- as he head-butts objects -- or Eek -- a monster who only speaks in emoticons. 

The game borrows heavily from Nintendo-style adventures, but it is, at its heart, a puzzle game. You'll have to activate triggers to lower spikes to retrieve treasure and pieces of your birthday cake. It's a well-balanced game that presents risk, but it isn't impossibly hard -- and, best of all, it's one that doesn't nudge you to buy in-game items to make it easier or to continue past a certain point.

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.
