Acerca deste jogo

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!

I recommend this game.

It's a good game for anyone who loves classic and / or funny games.

The graphics are not the best, alright, but among other reasons, is a good game :)

Gun Monkeys! The game everyone owns and nobody ever plays. Basically it works like going with a bunch of buddies to the lasergun or paintball arena. Except you stay at home - you are a monkey - you pick up blue things on the floor and attack the enemy spawn point and hope your team wins. But you will not find a team - or ennemies. And when / If you do you will quickly realize that a lot of other games involve team deathmatches and are much more entertaining. And you will then move on and completely forget about this game until someone tries to trade it to you in exchange for something expensive that you own.

Despite the amount of negative reviews here, I don't think this game is THAT bad. It can actually be really fun, if you have someone to play with...but more on that later.

What is this game about?

Gun Monkeys is a little, fun 1-v-1 deathmatch platformer with proceduraly generated world. You're in control of a monkey with a gun (duh!). Every match starts with a 200 second countdown for both players. You can increase your time/energy by picking up the little blue power blocks and returning them to your spawn point. This also decreases the time/energy of your opponent. Player who runs out of time, loses.
When you're killed, you respawn after a few seconds, with your countdown still running. In the end, the "gun" part of this game is all about keeping your opponent from the power blocks, cutting his way back to spawn point, and generally creating a hold-up.
Occasionaly, the game drops a power-up crate, which grants you new ability or weapon for a limited time or with a limited ammo. Also, you can plant bombs with somewhat fast fuse, but you have to be careful when you do so, since they consume part of your energy/time.

The Good.
The game is really easy to jump into, since the core mechanincs are pretty simple (in a good way). For me, it feels rewarding and fun to play, but can also get a bit frustrating (when you're getting obliterated by your girlfriend for instance). Also, the visuals, soundtrack, and overall atmosphere is nice and suits the game wel.
What I really appreciate is the fact you get one more copy of the game as a gift, to give to your friend, so you have someone to play with right away. It has local multiplayer mode too, which is always a nice thing. There are trading cards and a couple of achievements too, so if you're that kind of a person...

The Bad and the Ugly.
The biggest problem of this game is, that the servers are (almost) dead, so that's pretty much the reason why they give you +1 copy. Even when you finally meet someone in the lobby, there's a big chance they will disconnect during the match (been there). Like I said, it's nice they've added local multiplayer too, but when there's no one around, you can't do anything. I think the game could be much more alive, if there was some kind of story mode, or at least enemy Ai. Instead, it's stuck in this infinite spiral of death and no one wants to buy it anymore.
The other thing what bugs me are collision models and the confusion they create sometimes. Collision models don't match sprites most of the time, so you'll see monkeys overlapping with walls and such. Because of that, the controls may not feel as responsive as they should.
The last thing, although it's not a major problem, is the default controls layout. Thankfully, you can easily rebind those. Also I think gamepad would be great for this game, but i have no way to try that.

Conclusion
Obviously, the game has some major problems, but it can be fun if you can accept it for what it is.
Should you buy it? To be brutally honest, I got it for free and I wouldn't pay 5 bucks for this, unless there were more people playing it or a single player mode. This game was on sales and giveaways more times I can count, so it would be foolish to pay a full price for it.
I recommend you to wait for giveaways or sales, and get it if you have anyone to play with, either online or offline. If you have a spare key, give it to a friend, like I did. You might end up having a blast.

If you don't have friends, don't bother.

This is one of the games where you will need to get used to it before you actually say if you like it.

At first it was a weird thing that I totally didnt get. Controls felt weird etc.

But after about 1 hour of playing and customizing my controls I knew I have stumpled abon one of the best indie titles I have played in a while. Narration is original and funny. Music is nice. And there are quite a few map systems that are all unique. the game is really swingy which keeps you playing until your energy level hits 0. THe weapons are fun to use. Bombs add a layer of strategy to the game. In general it is a fun game that I recommend everyone to get and try for an hour at least. and then it will grow on them like it did to me.

on total this is a 7/10

I didn't know what to expect with this game, and at first I wasn't a big fan.

Then, maybe it was the few beers I had or the good company playing it with me, but Gun Monkeys grew on me.

It's a 1 on 1 battle arena game with floatly, platform elements and running and gunning. You can also lay extremely powerful mines down that do huge amounts of area of effect damage - extremely satisfying to get a kill with these.

Controller support is excellent as well.

I'd recommend this if you have a friend to play it with. I got enough enjoyment out of Gun Monkeys during the short time I played it for the price of admission. I wouldn't recommend playing alone however, so the fact it comes in a 2-pack is awesome.

This is a real eye-opener game. Unique design concept deep heart and it made ​​a very good detail. Plot is entirely inferior to Hollywood blockbusters. Role model is very fine, making good interface. So what? You worth trying to play!
這遊戲畫面做的還行..遊戲性也還有的,,,但是.誰跟你聯機?你的左手和右手打?

Well... I guess it's time to write my review since I cannot find any matches anymore and it is useless to keep the game on my computer anymore.

First the good things:

Tutorial:
Short, straight to the point, funny voice actor. Great tutorail !

Unlockables:
A huge variety of them. They suit every playstyle. Grinding for the higher perks is not required and the default ones work fine as well. In other words: everyone is equal and the perks don't make someone more overpowered than the other.

Level design:
Great level design. The randomness of choosing a map is a good idea. You never know what map you are gonna get and when you see a map you haven't seen in a while, you say: aaaah this one, cool. Some are underwater, some have 0 gravity, others provide you with jetpacks. Big variety there.

Controls:
There's only a few buttons you need to play this game. A controller works perfectly fine too. The only downside is that you cannot control the game menu or accept challenges from other players with the controller. That eliminates couch gaming because you always have to have your mouse next to you.

Mechanics:
Pick up cubes, bring them back to base, set traps so opponent can't pick up cubes or just shoot at him and kill him. What is not to love there ? The random falling crates also make the matches a lot more fun. The cryo power-up is garbage though. Making you freeze and letting your opponent gear up and collect many cubes while you cannot even move.

And now for the bad things:

Ghost town:
I've had this game for 2(?) months and was able to squeeze only 12.7 hours from it. NOBODY plays this game. Don't be fooled by the 12.7 hours though. Half of them were waiting for players to join a server, and I am not ever over exaggerating. Probably even more time was spend only waiting. Oh and I don't mean that there's noone at a certain time of the day. I've tried every hour of the day. It's always a ghost town.

No punishment:
There are some players who will play with you for a minute or two and just when you are about to win they will quit the game, giving you 0 XP points and having your time wasted. Great, time to wait another 20 minutes to find a player in the lobby.

Intimidation:
Sometimes, very rarely you can find someone on a server, the problem is that nobody wants to play against someone who's played more than 100 games. I've played 244 games and after my 100-150 one it was incredibly difficult convincing anyone to play with me because they feel that I will crush them just because of my big number of games played.

In conclusion:
An incredibly fun game and one of the 3 games I have ever enjoyed the multiplayer of. I am a singleplayer guy and never liked multiplayer, but this game grabbed me and I though that I would play it forever and ever, however NOBODY ELSE PLAYS IT. My suggestion is to buy it ONLY if you are willing to wait in the server lobby for hours every day and eventually finding someone who is not just farming cards or is not intimidated by your playtime.

Since there is no middle ground, I will give it a thumbs up, purchase at your own risk. You might end up not even being able to play it.

Gun Monkey felt broken and unfinished when I tried it... the battles are all 1 vs 1 as far as I know. You need to collect blue cubes in order to bring your opponent energy to zero and win but you need to press down to collect those blue cubes and the "too hard to master" controls gives you the impression that you are walking on ice all the time. You will have to reset your keys because having to press "e" to fire your gun while moving around with "wasd" keys feels counterintuitive... why they selected those as default key bind beats me.

The music is repetitive and the level design feel bland... I didn't know procedurally–generated was an excuse to not add strategy to the game. I kind of dig the character design but the fact that you can only shoot left or right and not aim your gun properly bugs me. The visuals are too minimalistic for this sort of game... it compliments the game about as well as a picasso in the middle of some amusement park.

The weapons are probably the strongest point in this game since killing your opponent seems to be the only enjoyable thing to do but this being said the bombs and mines are overpowered to the point of absurdness because most of the time you will end up blowing yourself up.

After each game you earn or lose money and there is a shop in the "my team" section where you can purchase some upgrade and become a little bit more of a treath to others. The items you own can be unequipped but once you remove them they are discarted and I don't even understand how thos items work and no information is given as to how they affect the game. Shady to say the least.

Also, most of the time your opponents will simply disconect when they are about to lose. No punitive system is present to prevent players from doing so and if a player disconect that match is simply voided.

To me it feels like Gun Monkey was poorly designed in order to keep people from becoming good at it but some poor souls are trapped in this game and are still trying hard to become better at it every day.

I give Gun Monkey 4/10

A highly underrated indie 1v1 platformer-shooter that you will both love and hate at the same time.

As soon as you figure out what the hell is going on, this game is a lot of fun.
