GUN MONKEYS is a Procedurally–Generated, Physics-based, Online Deathmatch platform game from multi award-winning indie dev Size Five Games.
In GUN MONKEYS, you'll take charge of a modern-day power company. In the distant future, a catastrophic experiment into Perpetual Energy obliterates all human life, leaving the world choc-full of free-for-the-taking energy, but unpleasantly lacking in people to take advantage of it. Your job as CEO is to send a legion of pleasingly-expendable monkeys forwards in time to collect Power Cubes and return them to present-day, all from the comfort of your PC.
Monkeys! In the future! Future Monkeys!
"Always Online" 1-on-1 Deathmatch action (offline local play mode also available)

Loads of Achievements and Trading Cards to collect!
Good 1v1 action packed fun!N2tZ | Aug. 26, 2014 | See all N2tZ's reviews »
I found the game to be very enjoyable, even though there aren't many players around to play with. Gun Monkeys might not be a game you can spend weeks on but it's good for an hour or two of fun every once in a while.
The game is pure, fast-based action which mostly relies heavily on skill. The goal of the game is basically to collect orbs while dealing with your opponent by killing them. Winning a match rewards you with money you can use on upgrades. You can have a limited amount of upgrades active at once, making each player different, rather than just more powerful.
The graphics are simple and colorful. They're stylish and go well with the rest of the game. Although sometimes the bloom and tons of action going on might make it a little hard to understand what's going on.
Overall, it's a fun game and has great potential. It just needs more players and maybe some minor tweaks.
Fun, BUT...iMichaelCortez | July 26, 2014 | See all iMichaelCortez's reviews »
The game is fun, however, it went the same direction most of the action packed indie multiplayer only games go: insane lack of players, and constant repetition. The graphics at the start will feel good, but after a hour or two it just starts bothering your eyes, too many colors. Only buy this game if you have a friend that will play local with you, even that way it's not worth it because you'll probably get bored of it after 15 minutes or less. Not to mention that the only way to win in-game currency is playing online, which means you won't be able to buy upgrades if you can't beat any other player because no one is playing the game.
Lack of players but fun.luci2100 | July 25, 2014 | See all luci2100's reviews »
If you like monkey's with Big Guns and big explosion's this is the game for you
Take control of a monkey with a huge gun and fight against other player's in a 1v1 match to death
The game lack's tons of players so i would get my friends to buy this otherwise there wont be much fun untill you get more friends to buy Gun Monkeys i will suggest you pass this.

Gun Monkeys is a multiplayer game which is lacking in a player base. I would only recommend getting this game if you had someone to play with. When you redeem a copy you get another free copy of the game which is a bonus and you can give it to someone to play with.
The gameplay is very simple it involves collecting energy cubes and bringing them back to your power core to score points. This is while the enemy monkey is doing the same thing and trying to stop you by using guns and bombs. Powerups can be collected to change your gun, freeze the other player, etc.
Overall it isn't a bad game and can be enjoyable if you have someone to play with, however the game is reasonably dead.

Great for some casual 1v1 action. The price is very good, but it does lack in player numbers, so it is not really recommended in that way. The game is multiplayer only, with some nice looking procedurally generated arenas, but you should only play this if you get it for free now, cause it's hard to find people to play with unless you have friends to play with.
But, overall, as I stated before, very fun game.
