Pac-Man Monsters review – The Pac attacks in an amazingly addictive puzzle RPG

Pac-Man Monsters review EVGA Tegra Note 7

Pac-Man Monsters from Japanese developer GREE is a free to play puzzle-RPG, not unlike Puzzle & Dragons and Doctor Who: Legacy. But GREE's take on the genre has a lot to differentiate it from other puzzlers. For one thing, it's not a match-3 game! This one has a totally fresh puzzle mechanic to keep the battles interesting. It also features hundreds of Pac-Man characters and guest stars from classic Namco games for players to collect and upgrade.

Learn the ins and outs of this addictive monster collecting game in our detailed review.

Update: It looks as though we pulled the trigger a little early on thinking authorized devices were limited in the "smartphone" category. After adding 6+ phones to our account, we were still able to stream music on all of them. The post has been updated to reflect this.

Original story: Google Play Music is picking up an update starting today to version 5.6, which includes a few subtle interface changes and some clarity on how authorized GP Music devices are handled.

Blek game creeps onto Android

23

A minimalist game has made the leap from iOS to Android called Blek, which definitely qualifies as one of our top Android game releases for the month. This puzzle title has been earning accolades from all over for its wonderfully fresh mechanics. Players are presented with a series of circles that have to be popped before moving onto the next stage. Black spots are peppered in between; touch those and you have to start over. The way you hit those targets is by tracing a single gesture on the screen which is then repeated on its own over and over after you lift your finger. The line can be as simple as a short swipe that continues moving forward, but more often then not you'll have to get pretty creative to continue on.
