Eat Them! is a new title exclusively for the PlayStation Network. It was developed by FluffyLogic, the creators of Savage Moon, a popluar tower defense game. In Eat Them!, you take control of a giant monster and terrorize the city. Your monster is fueled by eating cows, but people will do in a pinch, especially if you exhaust your supply of bovines, hence the title. Fake spoiler alert: You run out of cows immediately. Don't worry, there are plenty of people around. There isn't much of a story, but who cares? You get to pilot your own personal Godzilla!
The story is told through cut scenes using the in-game engine, which offers some beautiful cel-shaded visuals. The plot goes a little something like this: Evil corporation makes monsters. Mad scientist takes control of monsters. Puny humans try to stop monsters. Monsters do what monsters do best. The End.
But wait! There's more!
The story levels are broken up by area missions. So once you complete the first story mission, you have to complete the missions in that area to move on to the next plot level. Area missions come in different varieties, including Race, Survival, Destruction, Maximum Destruction, or Bonus. These missions have a time limit of three to four minutes. At the end of each you are given either a bronze, silver, or gold medal. Winning a bronze medal is okay, (that advances you through to the next mission) but winning a silver or gold medal nets you a new part for your Monster Lab.
