Game Review: Spider Monkey

Spider Monkey, round up. This game is a quick easy enjoyable came with super simple game controls. The graphics aren’t overly complicated but it all works well together. The objective is to rescue the tied up monkeys, get rid of the bad monkeys and earn points while you do it. To make the spider monkey jump you just use your left mouse button to click where you want him to go. At first, I thought that might be overly simplistic and easy, but I was soon found  there was more complex than I first assumed.

What I really liked. I liked the easy interactivity between the mouse and the character, the way the little monkey swung around made me smile. I liked the way the screen shook when the monkey fell off the trees and ‘dies’. It’s a great visual reminder that your character has taken a fall. I like the gratification of points and the checkpoints. I liked the way the game introduced you to the story, using a comic book style images to explain the back story.

What annoyed me. I found the double swing quite hard to master, so fell and died quite  a few times before I got the hang of it.

Game Play. The easy gameplay might make you think this game would be easy to clock, but my usual ineptness with games means that there is enough in the simple 2d game to keep me entertained for some a little while.

You can play this game for yourself for free in your browser at 2d Play.
