Gameplay 95%

Letter Monsters is a Match-3 puzzle game with an interesting twist. Here you control a cubic monsters with a letter, such as ‘A’, and move it around the grid by sliding your finger across the screen. The monster goes all the way in that direction, and stops until it reaches the end of the grid or crashes into another monster. If you combine it with two other monsters of the same letter, the 3 become one monster of the next letter, so three ‘A’ monsters become one ‘B’. The objective of every level is to get a high letter monster, such a D.

Then, a new monster will appear for you to move. There’s an item that let’s you move a monster in any space of the grid you want, just touch a monster and drag it where you want it. And there’s another item that let’s you swap places with another monster. There are Special Monsters such as the ‘Minion’, a rock that’s just an obstacle getting in your way, that can be destroyed with a Hammer Item, or with another Special Minion Eating Monster. Finally, there’s a ‘Joker’ black monster, that can take the color (and letter) of any monster it crashes into. Overall Letter Monsters is a very original take on the combine 3 formula, very easy to control and it gets pretty challenging by the time you’re looking into getting a ‘F’ Monster.

Graphics 88%

Letter Monsters looks nice and colorful, there are many different worlds, all with a nice design, and the monsters themselves look quite nice, like out of an educational cartoon for children.

They have very little animation, just some size changing and bouncing around when moving, but still, the amount of motion you see when sliding the monsters and combining them is just right.

Production Quality 92%

It would been nice to have different music in every World, but really, that’s just a minor complain.
