Product Description

Amazon.com

In this quirky, fast-paced game that combines elements of combat and puzzle solving, your mission is to be the last monster standing by utilizing the game's weaponry--including magic wands, guns, balls, and blocks--against the opposition. There are 40 levels across eight universes, eight planet monsters from which to choose, and link cable support for four players.

Review

Planet Monsters is an old-skool arcade game that blends puzzling and combat. You battle to wipe out three other monsters while running round the mazelike levels, squashing them with blocks, blowing them up with bombs, etc. But watch out--they're trying to do the same to you, and if you get squashed you'll have to start the level all over again. There are a bunch of other fatal enemies waddling round too, plus a variety of power-ups to help you on your mission. Each of the eight game worlds has five levels and a boss.

The graphics and sound are cute but nothing special. Once you get the hang of it, the gameplay is fun, but though it does evolve as you progress, experienced gamers might find themselves getting a little bored after a few levels and will probably complete it pretty quickly. But there's a multiplayer mode which lets up to four players battle via a link cable with just the one game cartridge, and this will probably provide much more long term fun than the single-player game. --Rikki Price -- Amazon.co.uk

4.0 out of 5 stars Old School Style, Yet Fun & Refreshing April 29, 2002
Having played many of the various Bomberman games over the years including Bomberman Tournament on GBA, I was looking for something similar to the B-man gameplay but slightly different. The closest I could find was Planet Monsters. So I decided to pick it up and give it a try, and found it to be fast paced, fun & very addictive. But it's the simplistic gameplay that makes this game. Its so easy to learn you won't even need to read the manual. You run your monster(who often reminds me of Stimpy from the old Ren & Stimpy cartoons) through maze's pushing blocks into enimes trying to knock out the three other computer controlled (or Human w/link cable & additional PM carts)oponents before they knock you out. Besides the 3 opponents(Whom also look like differnt colored Stimpy's), there are lots of other creatures also trying to stop you, as each maze has several "monster generators" popping out more creatures every few seconds, so the longer it takes you to beat a level, the more monsters you'll have to contend with! Plus there are tons of power up items, such as springs that allow you to jump over blocks, bubble guns that temporaraly trap your opponents or turns enemy creatures into blocks, bombs, extra lives & more. There are 8 worlds to challenge you, each with 4 levels and a boss level for a total of 40 areas to defeat. Four levels of difficulty make this game challenging for most everyone. The graphics, although a bit cartoonish, are very colorful and well animated. The various enemies are often huge & hilarious, and the music is lighthearted & pleasant. Would have gave Planet Monsters a 5 star rating except for the fact that it's nothing really new, but is is a very enjoyable game in it's own way, a bit repetitive at times, but it never stops being fun. To those who love Bomberman or similar action puzzle games, I recommend giving Planet Monsters a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME puzzle, logic , action game August 14, 2002
I am an adult who enjoys puzzle games and I really liked this one. The planet has been taken over by monsters and you must "fight" them to see who is the best. You must work your way through a maze of blocks and eliminate 3 monsters. There are 8 worlds with 5 levels each and a boss at the end of each. You can use the A button to push blocks and squash the enemy, or you can pick up special items such as a bubble gun to freeze them, a clock to stop all of them for a few seconds (both of these make them easier to squash) or a bomb to blast them. The enemies can also pick up these items, so get them first! Aside from the 3 you must eliminate, there are others who will harm you, and when you kill them, they will leave a reward to pick up for points, however, they will regenerate. There is a radar screen in the bottom corner which is very helpful when trying to locate the 3 enemies. You accumulate points by eliminating any monster and for the time you have left when all 3 are defeated. You can earn extra lives by getting points, or collecting all of the letters of the words MONSTERS and/or EXTRA. There is a password for each world, but beware, when you use the password, you start at the beginning of the world with zero points and only 4 lives. I think the graphics are great. The monsters are different on each level and the mazes contain unique obstacles. The bosses are a challange, but not impossible to defeat. The levels of difficulty merely increase the speed - whoa it gets fast. I felt this game was well worth the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a knockoff of Bomberman September 9, 2002
By TwistaG
Hey! Somebody replaced the mad bombers in my Bomberman game with Muppets! Actually the game in question (and beileve me, it will raise a few) is Planet Monsters, a multiplayer maze game that happens to look and play a lot like Bomberman. Instesd of dropping bombs, players kick the blocks that comprise the games mazes at one another. To spice things up, the developers also tossed in power-ups, boss characters, and non-player mutants that kill you with just a touch (not fair is it?). Nonetheless, the game reamins a simple Bomberman knockoff which would be fine if the GBA didn't already have a Bomberman game.
