A monkey barrel beater?
Manic Monkey Mayhem is a clear attempt by UK-based developers The Code Monkeys to make a straightforward multiplayer shooter that anyone can play. All you need is a Remote and a decent throwing arm to pick this one up, but does it have enough depth to justify laying out 1,000 Points? The controls are very straightforward:...
About The Game
As with most fights no-one really knows where, how and when this rivalry started, but this group of monkeys have not stopped battling for as long as they can remember.
Their chosen fighting style is the ancient art of Banana Flinging and although their manic screams of rage may insinuate uncontrolled anger, they are in fact highly accurate and adept banana flingers. Now sworn enemies, this band of angry apes is each determined to outlast the other in a furious contest of fruity war.
Controlling one of eight monkeys you will to do battle with up to seven others across eight different themed landscapes. There are several different game modes to compete in plus online battles to be had.
All the players will be positioned on small podiums each separated from their neighbour via a series of six floating wooden crates. Use your skills in banana flinging to knock the other players off their podiums, which will result in them losing a life. The crates separating each monkey can be broken to access power-ups and ammunition, or to simply open up a clear path to launch an attack on your opponents.
