Get ready to play made scientist in Trouble Makers

Monsters are trouble makers. It’s axiomatic. Playfish intends to prove the point with Trouble Makers, a monster-raising/lab-building game for iOS. Granted, you play as the mad scientist who creates these critters and orders them to work on mischievous projects—so who is the real monster here, hmmm?

Trouble Makers is a title that asks you to work through all of life’s difficult questions like, “If I was a mad scientist with a laboratory, how would I decorate it?” and, “What gene combinations can give me the craziest-looking monsters?”

Trouble Makers

As an aspiring evil overlord, you begin formulating your own army of minions (it’s cheaper than paying full-time salaries and benefits) by digging up rare genes and using them to play God with a bunch of candy-colored mutants. Once your new friends are settled in, you must put them to work operating the machinery in your lab, which involves running in hamster wheels and jumping on trampolines. Evil science creates misery for untold masses of people, but at least it produces a low carbon footprint.

Your monsters are going to be busy breaking themselves on your machinery, so it’s up to you to decorate your lab. Some options include shark tanks and ice cream carts, both of which will come in very handy when your friends visit your lab.
