Manic Monkey Mayhem [WiiWare] Review

2 December 2009
  • Excerpt: As you begin the game, you’ll have a choice of eight characters to play as before starting the tutorial. This will present to you ten different missions; each one explaining the controls. To control your monkey, you’ll have to learn how to perform short/medium/long throws, dodge incoming attacks, jumping, climbing trees, applying swerve to bananas that you throw, and catching incoming projectiles.
  • Pros: Its relative simplicity should appeal to gamers both young and old, Play online, Option to use Wii Balance Board to dodge left/right, Campaign mode will definitely provide a challenge
  • Cons: …partly because the accuracy of throwing isn’t great, Essentially quite repetitive

Review: Manic Monkey Mayhem

21 November 2009
  • Conclusion: An amusing game that can be a hoot in multiplayer if everyone can get to grips with the somewhat fiddly controls. Although the single player campaign is over somewhat abruptly, there is enough content here to keep you entertained.
  • Pros: Controls are easy to learn, difficult to master, Entertaining multiplayer mode, Supports Balance Board and Nintendo WFC, Variety of game styles
  • Cons: Throwing mechanic can lack precision, ‘Pass the Parcel' feels unfair, Uninspired boss fights, Single player over quite quickly

Manic Monkey Mayhem Review

25 September 2010
  • Summary: Sehr berühmt ist die Spieleschmiede The Code Monkeys mit ihren Titeln nie geworden. Verständlich, handelt es sich bei den Meisten ja nur um Lizenzversoftungen. Ihr neuestes Werk nennt sich „Manic Monkey Mayhem“ und ist eine neue und eigene Marke der Firma. Hat es dieses Mal zu einem richtig guten Titel gereicht oder ist die Spieleschmiede dazu verdammt, durchschnittliche Spiele zu machen?
