Review by Mocha Man
Monster Frenzy provides long hours of arcade action in which a stranded alien must collect falling fruit and drop it to the corresponding monster below to feed. When the hunger meter drops to the bottom, it's a game over after the hungry monsters throw him into the lagoon in which they reside.

Gameplay
This game brings your screen to life with fluid animation and movement for just about everything visible. Each element interacts seamlessly with the others, and no detail is forgotten. The amount of polish in this game is a rarity among game maker games, and I really don't have much else to say about it. Everything is crisp, neat, and definitely inspiring to new programmers.

10/10

Graphics
Monster Frenzy is visually stunning. Everything animates. Every detail has been thought of. There are fish and seaweed in the water, silhouettes of birds flying over the horizon, weather changes, water effects, monsters' eyes moving... the character even has cartoony dreams that you get to watch as he sleeps. This game is a work of art that gives people a reason to choose 2D games over 3D. Case closed.

10/10

Sound
A giant array of cartoony sounds, ambience, and gui frills makes this game a pleasure to listen to. Every one has finely tuned volume to blend with the others as needed. The ambient noises even change with the time of day, as do the graphics. Frantic music adds great comical flavor to the playing environment, although it does get annoying. The programmer has it turn off during the game's dream sequences to add more of a silent nighttime feeling, but nobody would complain if there was an option to turn it off all the time. Despite this small blemish, the sound in Monster Frenzy is amazing in its character and addition to the mood of the game.

9/10

Replay Value
It is quite difficult to stop playing this game when every screenshot looks like a painting and the audio sounds like a Warner Brothers cartoon, and when there are no annoyances in the gameplay or presentation that keep you from wanting to play again. Even with all its resources it uses, the game doesn't take long to load. A masterpiece. Unfortunately, the gameplay doesn't change much ever, and gets monotonous after awhile, so it isn't a game to play nonstop. However, after getting bored and eventually quitting, I can always come back the next day and it seems fresh and amazing once more. High replay value with a little moderation.

8.5/10

Highs: Overwhelming amount of polish, frills, and attention to detail present in gameplay, graphics, and sound.
Lows: Needs music off option, sometimes monotonous gameplay

I'll admit, before i tried it I thought it would be bad, but so far the staff rating has never let me down. after playing this game, i have decided that it is definitely very good. Download just to try it, and you'll probably end up keeping it. very addicting and polished. good job.

Seriously addicting. I wanted to stop after day 3 but I just kept playing until day 8. At that point I realized that it would probably be like that for the rest of the days so I decided to stop.

The Graphics are great and it's a very original concept. But it starts to get boring by about day 9 so I stopped playing.
