A really fun casual time killer I wish had a decent player base.TayburrFripper | Oct. 29, 2014 | See all TayburrFripper's reviews »
It is a very lighthearted, non-committal, cartoonishly, humorous little game wivery short PVP (player vs player) unfortunately this game has no players... I've seen anywhere from ZERO players online to upwards of a whole whopping TEN. seriously. the only problem with this game is lack of a user base considering it NEEDS people to play against as it is lacking a Single Player mode. If you have a friend that will play this with you then i think you guys will have a crapton o' fun; if you're friendless, or your friends are losers who don't play REAL games, like the degenerates whom I have the distinct displeasure to call my friends that only play console or only the newest most expensive games around for a month until its on to the next 60+ games; but I digress.
TLDR Really fun casual time killer with absolutely no player base. comes with extra key, so bring your own friend to kill

Monkey with a big gun against another monkey also with a gun? It's ridiculous! Gun Monkey is a multiplayer deathmatch game where you kill your opponent until his/her points are zero. Both start with a certain amount of points, I don't remember how much. The goal is to take all the points from the opponent, either by killing opponent's monkey or take 3 capsules and return them to your base.The visual is very nice, I really like it. It's a fun game, but only when there is other players to play against.
Filler game that lacks the filler.winsquare2 | Oct. 10, 2014 | See all winsquare2's reviews »
1 v 1 shooting deathmatch with monkeys.Although the concept is unique, the game itself is below average and the fact that the online player base is incredibly small makes it worse.Even with a friend, i can guarantee that this game will only get your attention for at least an hour at max.The graphics are pretty chunky and boxy plus the controls are really mushy.The game mechanics are also really bad.For example, where the energy cubes spawn and where the energy deposit is can be pretty bias, leading to, more often than not, 1 sided games.Its almost a coin toss when it comes to winning or losing.
All in all,there are easily better indie games than this.For the price,I extremely recommend this only if you want to try this game for yourself and decide whether it's really worth it.

Who said killing monkeys in future isn't funny? This game maybe is a 2D cross platform multiplayer, but it isn't like every 2D cross platform multiplayer. It has unique graphics design, soundtrack, and the most important, unique story, if it even has a story. Just kidding. There is a story, but it doesn't affect gameplay. You're a monkey sent to the future to bring some energy to the present because that energy is trapped in the future. Basically, all you do is collect blue cubes of energy. That's why I love this game. You have the option to kill your opponent, but you don't have to. But, there is one thing I don't like. Sometimes, I wait for about an hour on a server and no one plays with me. But, anyway, it's a great game and everyone should try it.

Okay, the name is silly, the controls are kinda mushy, and overall the game is just kinda bad. BUT! I keep coming back to it. Sure, it helps that I had a friend to play against online, but, hey, it comes with an extra key. Problem solved!
So maybe we should talk about what this game is all about. It's simple. You're a monkey with a gun. There is another monkey with a gun, probably evil, that you battle against while trying to collect little blue cubes and take them back to your tube base....thing. Sometimes power-ups will drop. Sometimes the procedurally generated level will try to kill you with traps, bombs, and explodey crates. But that's okay, because you'll respawn (with lost credits/points) and get to jump right back in the fray, or a giant saw blade.
If you win, you get credits in your bank, which you can use to buy global boosts, of which you can have four equipped at once. If you lose, well, you lose credits. So try not to do that.
So that's that. Gun Monkeys is simple, dumb, slightly frustrating, but strangely fun. Buy it, give it a try, drag a friend kicking and screaming along with, and have some fun blowing up an evil (probably) monkey. Unless you were the evil one all along.
