Tikiman the Forest Defender must defend his forest – fitting name, no? – and protect his offspring from invading monsters, gathering loot and power-ups along the way. The Steam version includes Big Picture Mode, making it playable with a controller, and has singleplayer, local and online co-op with leaderboards. There are also 20 new achievements for 52 total, and Steam Trading Cards and badges.

Remember, kids: Never enter the forest without plenty of water and your Steam Trading Cards.

Pixeljunk Monsters Ultimate HD recently launched for Vita, and is discounted this week for Plus members.
