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!

Sadly, at least coming from a south american, there are no servers I can join. I can throw 2 or 3 local multi matches with my brother but that's how far I can get. Shame, it's gameplay is actually tons of fun.

Sort of a worse version of Awesomenauts. The gameplay is really clunky, although it could be an interesting proof of concept

Gun Monkeys is a PVP platformer game where you fight it out with bombs and weapons to be the winner, Simple concept, looked fun, but it feels like it's in alpha and the game is just dead. It's a multiplayer game with barely ever anyone on... So, you can pretty much only play with friends or play the tutorial... :/

Well, I haven't actually managed to play the game much because of that, but from the few matches i've played, it wasn't the worst game, but in it's currency state, it's not something i'm looking foward to play. Even from the hour or so that I managed to play, it started to feel repetitive... And the game is $6 US, which is insane for a dead game.

I can't recommend this game unless you want to play with your friends and that the game is on sale for very cheap. It's your call, but I was far from impressed and I was bored quite fast.

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.

This game could be fun, the monkeys, their guns are fun, and I neon graphics look great, but....this game is practically dead, only 8 achievements, no game variations, no new things, no single player ( not counting tutorial) all time is the same you have to catch as much as possible capsules and take them to your base, the player who takes more wins, also this matches are just 1 vs 1, and needing just 2 people to play a multiplayer match this game has a lack of players, you can hardly ever find at least one person playing it on the internet, Steam Enhancement Addon just sees 3 players per day for example.

So after playing it just some matches while this game was on Free Weekend ( because only at this time I could find players...) this game just bored me after some matches, also some of the matches just bug so you have to restart your game. I think this game won't have a lot of players more than first days even if it becomes free to play. Developers need to add a more things to this game...
