Monkey business is a short achievements based arcade game, the goal is to catch as many bananas as you can before the time runs out. The game comes with a few achievements to add to the longevity of the game. There are three types of bananas the player can collect; regular, yellow bananas which adds to the score, brown rotten bananas which decreases the score, and a special shiny banana which acts as a power-up item and makes all the regular bananas on screen gravitate towards the player.

Controls: All the menus in the game are mouse-controlled while during the gameplay the monkey is controlled via the left and right arrow keys.

Try to collect all of the achievements or get a high score. Smile

pretty good


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Not bad. Nice graphics, nice music, somewhat addictive gameplay...I'm mostly just surprised that you're allowed functioning metals in a under-judgement game.

At any rate, I suggest adding in either some form of story, or something by way of either an upgrade system (draw inspiration from 'Upgrade Complete' or other games), or a score board at minimum. In addition, for an 'achievements base arcade game', there aren't any actual in-game achievements, so maybe add those in as well instead of relying soley on newgrounds achievements (especially if you put this on other sites, like Armor Games. Kongregate has achievements though, depends)

Keep on keeping on.

Nice game! I love the fact that it has achievements, that makes the games in my opinion more enjoyable.
Only thing to improve would be variety and the controls. The controls are quite slippery and everytime I go to the left (right) my character slides a little bit and it stars getting hard to control and stop him for a few miliseconds. In other words: try to make the monkey moves "smoother".
You should also add more backgrounds, songs, bananas and so on, it gets pretty boring after a while.
Anyways, good job! ;)

Although this game has some technical skill, decent graphics and not a bad sound, it has absolutely no real gameplay, it is painfully unoriginal, dull, boring and has no story to accompany it
There is no reason to play this game, it is just like every other "collect the falling things" type of game that exists, no innovation, nothing
Just dull
