If you haven't, you might want to consider getting around to it as the PSN expansion PixelJunk Monsters: Encore is on its way, and if our recent hands-on time with the game is any indication, you'll need all the practice you can get before setting foot on Toki Island.
The expansion adds a larger overworld view for you to switch easily between the first and second island, and this second set of easy, medium and hard stages will come with a few changes in addition to 15 new levels and five music packs. The previous gem-bought Ice Tower will now be available as a stock weapon and you'll only need 10 gems to buy the Tesla Tower. Other than that, the weapons and monsters are all the same -- it's really the level design that has changed the most".
