Earlier this morning, Eli and I gave Pudding Monsters ($0.99) a spin. It’s the new puzzle game from ZeptoLabs, the dudes behind Cut the Rope. In Pudding Monsters, you’re tasked with sliding gelatinous blobs into each other in order to form one single mega blob. Paying attention to each level’s obstacles, in addition to blobs, is key as blobs will slide off the map unless they crash into a piece of the environment or another blob.
You’ve probably seen this puzzle mechanic before in a billion other games or mini-games through the years, but Zepto manages to add a spark with its bright characterizations, in addition to devilish puzzle design. This game is way harder than it looks, especially if you’re the type of person who must get three stars before moving on.
Anyway, check out our video if you’re on the fence. We dig Pudding Monsters, at least, so maybe it’ll click with you, too:
