Description of App: 

Monsters from a parallel dimension have created wormholes to invade our universe. They quickly become invisible in our world-- but they don't realize we can still hear them.

Your Mission: Kill as many monsters as you can, as fast as you can, as you hear them arrive in our dimension....

Ear Monsters is a fast paced 3D audio action game that requires a keen ear and quick reflexes. With its rapid action and unique gameplay, Ear Monsters brings arcade style gaming and tempo to an audio only experience. Smack down monsters, defuse ticking time-bombs, and utilize overhead air support with 3D sound effects so realistic you’ll look up to see what’s flying over your head.

Other Comments: 

I have been playing this game for a long time now, and really enjoyed it. Though I don't play it as much. It's basically a game where you have to shoot monsters, and there is a time limit. It is a game that is worth it. You should definitely give it a try, if you like this type of games.
