It’s time to collect those shiny coins and gems and fire up the cannons - the Monsters are back! Available now on PSN, PixelJunk™ Monsters Encore adds 15 levels to the addictive real-time strategy game from Japan’s Q-Games. Keeping the same attractive style of meticulously hand-drawn 2D art, PixelJunk™ Monsters Encore recreates the look of a classic with crisp graphics designed for optimal viewing in Full 1080p HD.

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. Gamers can enjoy PixelJunk™ Monsters Encore with a friend in offline co-op mode, which requires careful strategy and communication. Additionally, PixelJunk™ Monsters Encore will support online leaderboards for both 1p and 2p co-op.
