  • Summary: [Dowloadable Game] PixelJunk Monsters Encore is an expansion pack to the tower defense game, PixelJunk Monsters. Encore includes 15 levels on a new map, "Toki Island", as well as the ability for players to track their score across both maps. Just as in the original game, Encore continues the simple real-time strategy concept of building, researching and base defending. [Sony] Expand

  1. The game still retains a brilliant sense of balance and an intrinsic "just one more try" feeling, and now there's more of it.
  2. If you are a fan of PixelJunk Monsters, you owe it to yourself to pick up this worthwhile add-on. The gameplay still retains its charm, and chances are good that you'll fall in love all over again!
  3. Pixeljunk Monsters was a fantastic addition to the PSN library, and while Encore builds upon the foundation well enough, the challenge can be more than off-putting to the casual player.
  4. For the $6 that PixelJunk Monsters Encore will cost to buy, you get a bunch of new levels, some gameplay improvements, some new music, and the satisfaction that your PixelJunk Monsters fun can stay alive for a while longer.
  5. If the original was too difficult, the expansion pack will throw you into fits. Avoid if you dislike critical thinking and purchase if you enjoy anything the tower defense genre has to offer. This expansion is a luxury, not a necessity.

    The core PixelJunk Monsters experience is unchanged in Encore, and the expansion really just provides more of the same content to enjoy. If that's alright with you, you certainly won't miss your six dollars.
  7. The new levels are fun and addictive, and the gameplay is as hypnotic as ever. Just be ready to be challenged, because while it looks innocuous enough, Encore puts up a good fight.

    Pixeljunk Monsters is easily one of the most addictive co-op games available in the console market. It seamlessly blends the ease of simple controls with devilishly "just one more try" addictive gameplay. I can guarantee that you'll spend a very many hours attempting to "rainbow" every level! For those who enjoy a little more competition, your scores can uploaded via the PSN to a Global Leaderboard to show off and gives it that extra layer. A welcome addition to any gamers collection, whether hard core or casual. Well done Pixeljunk! Expand
