Highschool of the Apes

Author Comments

It was the Fall of 2000. I had joined Newgrounds to lend my graphic design skills to the website: I created the new tank logo, most of the fist level icons, and the older bitmap style icons that are sprinkled around the site.

Tom Fulp and I thought that a parody of "Planet of the Apes" was needed, especially because we heard Tim Burton was doing a re-make of the film. So, "HighSchool of the Apes" was born!

I didn't have much experience with Flash, so once I had finished the art stuff I tried to soak in all Tom's Flash knowledge. The result was this choose-your-own-adventure game that I hope you enjoy!

NOTE FROM TOM: This was previously showcased as a non-Portal submission, hence the more recent submission date.

Loved this game back in the day!!!
Sadly, I cant get the game to work after gym class :(((I

Has some high entertainment quality, one of the better, and older, point and click adventures out there. Of course it had many of the cliches around, such as excessive violent themes, and overly sexualized baboon ass... wait. Either way I'd like to think that it made the standard itself rather than following it.

The art was pretty well done, and the choices had some variety and were overall interesting. However, with all these great attributes there are some down sides. Some of the choices are bugged, as in you can't continue after making them, and as hard as I tried, I couldn't get a good ending to the game.


a true classic

This was a true classic I played this thru many different times and it was just perfect very humorous and the monkey sounds were hilarious
