In PixelJunk™ Monsters Encore, the player controls a defender-of-the-forest character in a lush forest environment. The player’s goal is to strategically defend the pathway to his homebase from an onslaught of various threatening monsters. In between waves of monster attacks, the player scrambles to reinforce his defenses by collecting gold coins and jewels from fallen enemies to finance new towers and research deadlier weapons. Eventually, the player can harness the elements throughout the 15 different stages to cast lightning storms across the forest.
