All in all, even though it's an 8-year-old game, PixelJunk Monsters is a welcome addition to the Wii U. It looks sharp and smooth, utilizes the GamePad very well (which is always a plus for any game that arrives on the console), and still manages to provide a unique tower defense strategy. Things can get stressful, as they are supposed to in tower defense, but that's all part of the fun and genre. Just make sure your towers are equipped to handle both land and air, and those nasty monsters never make it to your Tiki children. Be safe out there, Tikiman!

A fun game with plenty of reasons to replay but ultimately one that does little to make it feel different to the legions of tower defense already on the market. Frustratingly it's more fun playing this on the gamepad, and it feels like it would be much better on 3DS. Worth playing for the tower defense aficionados out there, but it would probably be better to play the PS Vita version.

Wii U ya tiene su versión del aclamado PixelJunk Monsters, un juego que pasó por la anterior generación y por consolas portátiles, y un título que aprovecha las cualidades táctiles del mando y su interfaz para hacer más llevadera la ya de por sí divertida dinámica de cada partida.
