About This Game

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!

The game is a PvP 2D Platformer style game where monkeys use crazy weapons and bombs to fight it out to the death. The concept seems amazing, the game seemed fun... however its multiplayer is 100% dead and all I could play was the tutorial. Therefore, based on what limited amount of the game I could play, I will tell you the Pros and Cons.

Pros:
♦ Awesome remapable controls (Every game needs remapable controls as easy as Gun Monkeys!)
♦ Great team colour settings (Pretty much any colour you want, you can be)
♦ Nice amount of unlockables for winning games (Fair way to unlock perks in the game)
♦ Sexy voice over and backstory (Love the voice over and well thoughout backstory that suits)
♦ Nice Steam Trading Cards
♦ Easy Achievements (If the game wasn't dead)
♦ Decent Sound and Graphics (From what I witnessed in the Tutorial)

Cons:
♦ Alt+Tab caused game to crash on numerous occasions (This shouldn't happen for any reason)
♦ Idle changes resolution to something random (This is annoying as it doesn't change it native to your current resolution settings and doesn't change the resolution back upon closing)
♦ Servers register people into them making them say full or busy when they are empty (This is terrible as it registers a plyer to a server even when the person is offline making a server look active when it's 100% dead)
♦ Multiplayer is 100% dead (this sucks as it looks like a fun game)
♦ Price is too high (If the game has no-one playing it, the devs need to look at other ways to make people come back such as making it free)
♦ Devs seemingly have abandoned the game (Along with the price point, the Devs seemingly arn't doing anything to make people want to come back an play this game which is annoying)
♦ Hard to get all Achievements as you need to vs people to get them (As the game is dead, so are achievements essentially)

Overall, from the tutorial and farming cards, this seems like it would be a decent PvP 2D Platformer style game. However, even though from what I played the game looked quite fun, due to the servers being 100% dead it is unplayable unless you had a friend in the same region you wanted to vs over and over again... if that isn't the case than there is no point buying this. Although it is 100% dead, it doesn't seem like a bad game it just seems like it has been left for dead and no-one has any incentive to continue playing it which is why on a whole I have given it a thumbs down.

PS: If this game had people playing it, it would be a good game.

Servers are always full. I've tried in many occasions to play it, but I'm not able.
What is going on with this game?
