Summary: The Monkey King: The Legend Begins is a classic style side scrolling cute 'em up. You play as either a male or female monkey. You fly on a cloud and shoot down hoards and hoards of oncoming enemies. It's all quite simple and actually pretty fun for a short time. The graphics are cute and look like a high quality Saturn 2D shooter. Unfortunately with its dated graphics most people will pass it up. That's too bad as it's really not all that bad a game.
