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.
Ear Monsters uses an advanced binaural HRTF 3D sound engine created by QSound Labs, the company that created Virtual Haircut, the most listened to 3D audio on the internet.
Although not specifically designed as a game for the blind, Ear Monsters makes extensive use of VoiceOver and is fully accessible for visually impaired gamers.

Really Fun and Unique game.
Very addictive and the 3d sound effects are amazing. At one point I took off my headphones because I thought the airplane was actually out there.
It's a bit tricky at first, but once I got the hang of it, I couldn't put it down. This is definitely one of my favorite games this year. Using only your hearing to kill the monsters is a great idea, and I love the way the pace increases as you get better. Just when I thought I was good, the game would throw another curve at me.
My main criticism would be that this game cries out for Game Center support!. I like trying to beat my own high score, but I'd rather try to beat everyone elses.
This game is extremely fun.
This game is worth the price. It is highly addictive. The music and the sounds are amazing. I cannot put this game down. Now if I can just get past 507.
Fun and challenging!
Great use of binaural 3D audio and easy to drop in and out of quickly (arcade-style) as a player. One of the best audio apps for iOS.
