logoWhile Continuum Games has a bunch of new products for 2015, the two they were spotlighting were Mega Monster City Smash and Word Q. Both games couldn’t be more different from each other, one having remote controlled monsters, and the other being just a box of letter tiles.

Mega Monster City Smash – $29.99 – Ages 5+

Mega Monster City SmashTo tell you the truth, this is more of a toy than a game. Each player controls one of two giant monsters trying to knock down the buildings of the other player. Each remote has two functions: move forward, or spin. Get your monster to face in the right direction and then charge the towers! I have to admit I even tried to push the other monster off the board, which I don’t know if that’s actually allowed or not. In the end I lost horribly.

Word Q – $12.99 – Ages 8+

Word Q

Word Q is a puzzle game where you’re trying to create words in every row and column. Words can be 3 letter words for easier puzzles, and 4 letter words on the harder puzzles. The book that comes with the game lets you know the starting layout of each puzzle, and which letters are already in the correct spot. There’s only 1 solution per puzzle, and it’s a lot harder than it looks.
