As part of Fun Friday, today’s recommendation is the Blast Monkey Mobile App Game. It is available for both Android and iPhone. Blast Monkey is addicting. Watch out. The night I downloaded it, I proceeded to play 60 levels. Yep, 60. The arcade type game with creative puzzles and solutions will suck you in. The reason it’s so addicting is because of it’s simplicity but challenging gameplay.
Now 60 levels may seem like a lot but each one is pretty quick. (unless you die of course, get pissed off, and play until you beat it). The object of the game is to ‘shoot’ a monkey out of a cannon and collect 3 bananas before entering a ring or circle that will complete the level. The first couple levels are a breeze, then progressively get more challenging.
You can bounce the monkey off walls and boards, much like pinball. However, some levels have spikes that will kill you. Or if you don’t get the monkey through certain obstacles, you can watch him fall to his death. In some levels there are bubbles that will float the monkey to the top. You can pop the bubble at any time by pressing on it. This comes in handy when spikes are above you.
The game could use some updated graphics. It’s pretty plain and straightforward but something you get used to pretty quick as you try to beat each level. Again, I’m warning you, don’t play this game unless you have an hour or two to kill.
Have you played this game before? What was the most challenging level?
