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!

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?

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

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 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 liked this game, I played it when I was really bored, because it is all about short death matches, I generally don't like that type of game, and on top of that when my opponent disconnect from the game before we begin, I can't disconnect, I have to close the whole game and enter it again.

Guirky fun platformer with fun 1v1 combat. Has a very good variety of levels and powerups. A good buy if you find this on sale for a few dollars.

The physics are wonky. The controls are sluggish (both kb/m and gamepad). The gameplay is weak.

It's just not a fun game. At all.

Small and fun game, very enjoyable if you get good when online! No storyline, but it doesn't need it. 8/10 for what it is worth!

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.

Gun monkeys is a game that has a pace slower than my grandma coated in molasses sliding across a wooden floor, the combat feels as fluid as 2 burritos in a blender, and the humour is so british i can imagine if it was still around, monty python would steal jokes from it,
All; in al is wsa vry foun
