Oceanside, CA - Thursday, July 24 – Robot Rocket Games announced the release of their title Monster Head on the iPhone App Store today. The mobile tap game promises to bring a refreshing and challenging approach to casual gaming. The California studio is offering the paid version of their title for free today only.

If there’s one thing Monsters love – it’s donuts! In Monster Head, players must quickly tap donuts to feed a horned, blue Monster with an absurdly large tongue. However, his appetite is never quite sated. A hunger meter looms overhead, slowly depleting toward the monster’s demise. Players will need quick reflexes and strategic sense to keep him from peril. Noxious poison bottles, Burning Hot Coffee and other deadly items will keep players on their toes as they try to reach higher levels, scores and achievements. They’ll need to use special power-ups like hammers, snow cones and milk to lap up several donuts at once or destroy threatening objects. In addition, players will charge up to enter Gold Mode every ten levels, sending Monster into a donut-eating frenzy that reward players bonus coins and lots of points.

Players will need to look for combos (tapping three donuts of the same color in a row) that fill the hunger meter up faster and reward bonus points. ‘Donut combos are the heart of the game play experience…’ explains Moore. ‘Without them, players won’t reach higher levels. Looking for these combinations is often the difference between monster life and death.’

Monster Head includes limitless gameplay and hundreds of challenging levels. Once the player defeats the first 100 introductory stages, levels are then randomly generated using a variety of toxic, deadly items. ‘We designed Monster Head with both casual gamers in mind who only have a few moments to play…’ says Moore ‘as well as veteran mobile gamers who want freedom to be highly competitive. The best players will be early adopters who can’t put it down.’

Monster Head is available in two varieties – a free version with ad display and one without for $1.99 USD. The paid version will be available free only today. Robot Rocket Games plans to release several in-game cosmetic and theme-driven items in future updates. In addition, the studio has ideas for new game modes and challenges to keep the game fresh for existing players.
