A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Monsters Ate My Condo wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.
Ease of Play
The play mechanics are incredibly simple to learn and to handle, but be aware that the challenge factor will increase as you move along.
Violence & Scariness
As you swipe "condos" out of a stack, they are gobbled up by the giant monsters nearby. If you anger a monster by feeding it the wrong color condos, it will knock down your tower. All the action is incredibly cartoony.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Monsters Ate My Condo is a stacking and matching game with a bizarre, tongue-in-cheek Japanese monster movie theme. Different colored "condos" -- essentially floors of an apartment building -- fall into a tall stack, while two giant hungry monsters stand nearby. You need to match three or more condos in a row, by swiping wrong-colored condos out of the tower. If you "feed" the condo to a monster of the same color, the monster is happy and doesn't interrupt your game. If you feed it mismatched colors, it will eventually get mad and attack your tower. The monsters are far more goofy than scary.
Is It Any Good?
Imagine Jenga crossbred with Tetris and disguised as a 1960s giant-monster B-movie. That's Monsters Ate My Condo. Its simple gameplay and wacky visuals make it an incredibly addictive experience. And it's got a nice element of strategy that makes playing feel more like a mental challenge than just mindless time-killing. There's also a long list of achievements that give you added goals to try for, in addition to simply aiming to outdo your previous score. It's all good, silly fun. Very silly.
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.
