Game Play - 7.5/10
Speed - 10/10
Graphics - 10/10
”Monster” is a great and unique version of “Breakout” that scrolls in order to give you a bigger playing field. If you have ever played “Blasterball 2 Deluxe,” then this game may be familiar to you because you get several power-ups (these include a paddle enlarger, a ball that will go through any brick, two more balls, and one that increases your life) during the game that will help you beat the game. However, this game has several downsides that made me gave it a 7.5/10. To me, the scrolling isn't quite as smooth as you would think, making you to drop the ball. Second, the speed at which the power-ups drop does not match the speed of the ball, making you to drop several power-ups in the faster levels. Another downside is that the paddle is way too small, which may cause you to lose the ball several times in the game. Finally, the first round of one of the levels (I can't remember which, but it's the one with the columns) that comes with this game is way too hard to beat, which may scare off impatient players.

Despite these downsides, I would still recommend this game to patient players as well as every one who still wants to try. Don't let my words above stop you from downloading, because I am not usually good at games. Happy downloading!!
