New take on an old-school carnival game

A Monster Ate My Homework is an addictive physics-based game, reminiscent of the old milk-bottle knockdown challenges many of us used to play at carnivals. With its nonsensical storyline and bright, whimsical 3D graphics, it's a charming download that, at the very least, should put a smile on your face.

Essentially, there are two types of objects arranged atop a cardboard box: monsters and homework. Your job is to knock all of the monsters off the box without knocking any of your homework off in the process. It may sound simple, but as you progress through the levels, the configurations of monsters and homework get increasingly complicated, making it impossible in some cases to hit one without hitting the other. Luckily, you have an unlimited number of balls at your disposal, and you get to swipe around the 3D environment to attack the monsters from different angles.

With its realistic physics and vibrant 3D graphics, we think this game is a winner. So if you're in the market for a physics-based challenge to pass the time, or if you're just in need of a smile, we recommend giving A Monster Ate My Homework a try.
