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.


Key Features:

  • Monkeys! In the future! Future Monkeys!

  • "Always Online" 1-on-1 Deathmatch action (offline local play mode also available)

  • Procedurally Generated levels means you'll never play the same map twice!

  • Tailor your squad to your unique playing style with a host of interesting and helpful Perks!

  • Short, sharp, hi-octane jabs of multiplayer fun!

  • Challenge your friends, or make new enemies!

  • Loads of Achievements and Trading Cards to collect!

This here is one of the best multiplayer games ever! The artstyle is great, there are no bugs at all, announcer is funny, gameplay is polished, everything is PERFECT!

This game is an underrated gem and you should buy it and support developers.

Overall a nice game

It's a fun little 1v1 game. The gameplay is nice enough, where you have the choice of either killing your enemy directly or by gaining a power advantage. Usually you'll have to employ a strategy consisting of both elements, but do not underestimate the importance of collecting those powercubes!

I changed the action button to my LMB, as I found this easier to move and shoot at the same time.

Last but not least you get a second copy (gift) in your steam inventory which is definitely nice to send to a friend, especially since there aren't that many players online and it can be difficult to find a match sometimes.

Multiplayer is Dead

It can be fun if you take it for the casual 1x1 multiplayer platformer that it is. The graphics are neato and it works well with a gamepad.

It's also cheap. I bought it for about 2 dollars after a free-weekend on Steam, and it came with a 2nd copy as a Gift in a fair attempt to hoist the playerbase. It drops trading cards, so if you decide to sell those, your cost will have been even lower.

The reason i can't recommend it is that there is no playerbase. I've never seen anyone on their servers after the free-weekend on september 2013. Since its inclusion in a bundle that is going on at the time of this review, I've seen the servers going from empty to maybe 2 or 3 people. It stands to reason it will be deserted again pretty soon, as there is no single-player content to keep people running the game when the lobby is empty.

There is a message in the lobby suggesting you to join the Gun Monkeys Steam Group and check the chatroom to find players. I did that and never found anyone in there either.

Maybe it isn't the developer's fault - for as long as i could play it the game was fine, but unless you fancy playing the tutorial over and over, Gun Monkeys is rendered unusable by this desolation problem.

Then again, maybe it is their fault for releasing a multiplayer-only casual indie game in times when there is such an overabundance of other options. Even the low price doesn't hold much significance if you consider the amount and quality of free-to-play games out there.
