Summary: What is the most logical thing to do when you create an infinite amount of energy that is stuck in a terribly hazardous future? If you answered anything except “send armed monkeys to collect it”, then you are clearly no scientist. That’s precisely the premise of the PvP platformer Gun Monkeys.
Summary: Good enough to monkey around in In an era where some games tend to get weighed down by convoluted designs, overindulgent narratives, and overdone mechanics, simplicity can often times not only evoke brief moments of nostalgia, but can also deliver us a much needed escape from modern games.
Conclusion: Gun Monkeys was loads of fun, and I highly recommend it. The gameplay is absurd and addictive, and the presentation is clever and entertaining. The only stumbling points for me were a slight difficulty finding matches at times, and one or two technical hiccups with the UI.
