Free, cute, and addictive, but beware the in-app purchases.

Once you download the free version as you advance in the game you are given the option to buy more "coins" without the password. My kids cleaned out my itunes account in ONE session.($26). STAY AWAY FROM THIS SITE. When I tried to report a problem when I received the account from itunes

Is It Any Good?

The bubble-popping, match-three gameplay of WACKAMONSTA may not be unique, but it's done really well, with very nice simple controls and cute, fun visuals. Swapping among four different game modes is a great way to create variety for yourself, although the game is addicting enough that you may not want to switch modes. While the urgings to buy "extra coins" can be annoying, at least there's no need to ever do so -- this is an app that you can play forever for free if you want. It may take a while for you to save up and buy a new monster, but then again, there's no real need to ever buy a new monster, either. The screen-top ads can also be annoying, but they're generally unobtrusive and don't get in the way of the game. Overall, if you can get past the commercial aspects of the app, WackaMonsta is an immensely enjoyable game.

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.
