I love my singing monsters. it is the perfect game. I can learn about music making, and make beats for my favorite group, 404 found on SoundCloud. I have made a couple of beats using my singing monsters, on songs in the Proceed with Caution Album. 10/10 game.

Kids and kids at heart likely will fall for these charming ditties. There are more than 50 monster species to collect and love. My Singing Monsters also benefits from slick art and animation, lush islands (each with its own unique song), and countless decorations and structures. Kids will enjoy creating unique landscapes and sound combinations while earning collectible trophies. Performing tasks earns you coins, which you can use to buy items from the virtual store. Some monsters and items require green diamonds, though, which means you need to build a mine to produce diamonds (or you can purchase these precious jewels with real cash via an in-game purchase).

Unlike the iOS and Facebook versions, in the Vita version we couldn't figure out how to visit someone else's island to see how they're doing. And the game requires a constant Internet connection, so kids can't play in the back of a car unless they use cellular data. Overall, although the Vita version of My Singing Monsters is a blast, it's not quite as good as the tablet or PC experience, thanks to those platforms' bigger screens. But PSVita gamers looking for something fresh and fun will no doubt enjoy this free downloadable digital diversion.
