Monsteca Corral: Monsters vs. Robots is a monster-packed 3D strategy-puzzler.

Monsteca Corral focuses on fast paced fun-puzzle gameplay. It is targeted at anyone and everyone who enjoys pick up and play games. You control a herd of peculiar orange creatures known as Stompies. You need to stop these cute and not so bright Monsters being stunned by invading robots. Instead of watching Stompies run a dim-witted riot, it is your job to collect them and guide them successfully through each level.

As a Monster Herder you fly above the Stompies saving them from the dangers of their changing environment. Your Stompies run through each level, collecting Energy orbs that are scattered throughout the habitat and which increase the communal power of the herd. This power enables the herd to smash up buildings, resist the ever increasing robot population and feed the Astro Maggot that provide their ultimate means of escape.

Herders can use the Wii Remote to:

  • create deviation paths that block off dangerous routes for Stompies.
  • allow Stompies to follow a route.
  • make Stompies split and form sub groups.
  • help Stompies damage the robot environment.
  • make your Stompies jump and shake and fart.
  • rescue your Stompies from Robot Prison.
  • escape on the back of an Astro Maggot.

Stompies migrate through the different and ever changing environments of the Monsteca World: Stomping through Desert, Open Plains, Wooded Highlands, Forest, Wetlands and City in their bid to make it home safely.

Can you get them all home?
