Bought this at around 7 pm last night and started playing.

I turned around, and it was 12:30 am.

Savage Moon: Appreciated

Can you write a mini-summary on the game?

Like, now does it compare to Pixeljunk. I am really interested in this one, but also really wish there was a demo for it.

I heard it's the best looking PSN game, so far.

Can you confirm that?

In principle it's very similar to Pixeljunk Monsters. You strategically position towers to defend a mining base from all sorts of nasty creepy-crawlies. Every critter that gets through damages your mine. Towers can be upgraded by investing points you gain by frying critters. The first five levels or so are tutorial levels that explain everything you need to know.

The graphics are spectacular, especially the explosions really rock. Don't know if it's the best looking PSN game, but it certainly looks good.

The main problem I have with it is that there's no general overview or map of the level available before you start, which makes planning your strategy pretty difficult imo. You also don't know where the first waves of critters will be coming from and which route they'll be taking so I ended up having to restart levels quite often which got to be a pain in the behind after a while. I generally suck at gaming (to put it mildly) but I was still a little ashamed to find that even the seventh or eighth level or so was getting to be too much for me.

It looks good but lack of demo sucks. I wish all PSN games had demos like XBLA games.

That would be incredibly nice. It is a very good game so far in what little I have played, two levels, but I am always a sucker for tower defense games.
