Addiction will have a new name on Sony's PlayStation Network come January 2008: PixelJunk Monsters. The game is a spiritual successor to PixelJunk Racers, developer Q-Games' funky PSN-exclusive slot car racing game. But that older game has nothing on Monsters. It is at base a tower defense game featuring cute, hand-drawn 2D creatures and a surprisingly deep assortment of defensive installations and upgrades to choose from.
