I used to say that I wasn't really a game player,
either on my computer or on my Droid. I considered
both primarily productivity tools. Okay, I enjoyed
an occasional game of Scrabble or some other word
game, but wasn't really big on the race car driving,
shoot 'em up, kill the aliens, find the secret
world, popping balloon games.
However, as I continued to check out some of the
games available for the Android and iPhone platforms
I found myself getting hooked on a few of them (Stupid
Words With Friends
When I ran across Pumpkins vs. Monsters in the
Android Market, I had to scroll down through 15
reviewers before anyone gave it less than four out
of five stars. That alone made it worth a download
For me, one of the keys to any game is making it so
that I can jump right in, start playing and figure
out the intricacies later. Don't make me think or
read lots of instructions.
I was throwing my pumpinks and killing me some
monsters right out of the chute.
With each level getting just a little more
difficult, it's the kind of game that, even after
you're frustrated and shut the damn thing down,
you'll find yourself coming back and trying to get
past the level that's giving you difficulty.
As it turns out, I'm starting to enjoy blowing up and
killing creatures on my Android device. I'll give
Pumpkins vs. Monsters 4.3922641 stars out of 5. It would
have been a full five stars, but it took me a while to
get my head around using pumpkins as weapons.
I'm still a novice
at Pumpkins vs. Monsters, but it really looks like
they give you many, many levels to conquer and this
game/app is totally free.
