What parents need to know
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.

What's it about?
MONSTERS ATE MY CONDO is an Adult Swim (Comedy Central) app. It is flashy and loud and silly and fun. Botched plastic surgeries and nuclear accidents created monsters hungry for condos. Kids create combos of three of the same colored condo without letting the building fall or be destroyed by angry monsters. They have to feed the monsters the right color to keep them happy. The game has an in-app tutorial to teach kids the game while they play.
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.
