Hailed as the next “Angry Birds,” A Monster Ate My Homework is an addictive physics game that’s charming and tons of fun to play. It’s similar to those games you used to play at the carnival where you would knock down stacks of bottles by throwing a ball at it.

The only difference is that you get to play this at the comfort of your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Add to the mix colorful graphics, angry looking blocks and a really fun gameplay and you have yourself a winner. The game features 80 unique levels and an amazing 3D environment where you can easily throw the ball from any angle. 

As you know, the game premise is simple. Simply knock off the stack of blocks from the platform by throwing balls at them. There’s one tricky aspect though, along with the blocks, your school books are piled in stacks as well. You must make sure that none of your school books fall into the water otherwise it’s game over.

One of the most alluring things about this game is that it’s so simple to play yet tough to master. You’ll find yourself trying again and again, especially if physics wasn’t something you were keen on back in school. As you progress through the levels, various obstacles will start appearing. These new obstacles can either work for you or against you so you have to be extra careful on where you throw the ball.

If you really look at it, the game gets so many things right; the mechanics are simple, the graphics are superb; the controls and execution is admirable. The social aspect is missing but personally, I don’t really mind. I think it’s still a great game whether played by yourself or with other people. Try it out and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
