  • Summary: The addictive world of PixelJunk Monsters goes on the move with the arrival of PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe. Combining the popular PlayStation 3 original strategy title with its follow-up expansion pack, Encore, PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe boasts all the gameplay of its PS3 counterpart with fresh new content and added portability. Defend your forest brood against an onslaught of monsters by building towers which automatically fire on your enemies. Make sure your placement and strategy is sound, or your helpless children will find themselves as a quick snack for the nasty encroaching creatures. PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe features a new island with 11 stages, unique monsters and bosses, a Medal challenge mode, Medal room (with movie player, gallery and sound player) and more. [SCEE] Expand

    If you've already beat the previous two islands, trying to gain medals for each challenge will give you a whole other goal to obsess over, but if you've never played PixelJunk Monsters before, well, there's no better time than now!
  2. PixelJunk Monsters: Deluxe is one game strategy fans should not overlook.
  3. Easily the definitive version of this tower defense game.
  4. 89
    A complete version of the PlayStation 3 game with all the expansions. Although the price is very low, you get one of the best PlayStation Network games on your PSP.
  5. If you own a PSP and you enjoy tower defense games then buying PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe is a no brainer.
  6. On one hand you've got a fiendishly hard single-player game that taxes the mind as much as the reflexes, and on the other there's a more considered two-player game with a slower pace and more tactical play.
  7. Despite getting masochistically frustrating at times, there's a certain "je ne sais quoi" that PJM has, and Deluxe is no exception.

    This game is so good. I have played it for more than 4 months and am trying to get all the rainbows. It is tough. The Vita is the perfect fit for this game. I can choose to control with the right or left stick and sometimes I switch, it feels very natural to do this. Graphics are crisp and clear, sounds are okay, the game play is where it's at. If a command and conquer comes out for the Vita, I would check that out in an instant. Really recommended! Expand

    Hopefully this does not double post, but... This is a great tower defense game, but the online version has become an area where weirdo pedophiles linger. I do not reccomend that anyone buy this game. Expand
