About the 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!

You play as a monkey with a big gun against another monkey also with a gun. Gun Monkey is a multiplayer deathmatch game where you kill your opponent until his/her points are zero. Both start with a certain amount of points, I don't remember how much. The goal is to take all the points from the opponent, either by killing opponent's monkey or take 3 capsules and return them to your base.

The visual is very nice, I really like it. It's a fun game, but only when there is other players to play against. The biggest flaw with this game is that nobody plays it.

"Gun Monkeys" is as good as dead. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice competitive whatever monkey-shooter. There was a free weekend some time earlier, so me and a friend tested this game and it was pretty cool, we found. So I bought a copy of the game and realised that I got 2 copies, I think one was for free, so I gave the second game to my friend as a gift.
Everything was OK until the "free weekend" of Gun Monkeys ended. From that point on the game was kind of dead and by that I mean nobody played it anymore. It's sad, but nevertheless the game is pretty cool, but besides the multiplayer matches the game has nothing else to offer. I guess this is the reason, why nobody plays it anymore.
So if you want a small little multiplayer distraction and got some friends to play it with, spend a few bucks (it's really cheap) and spend a few hours shootin' monkeys.

A decent 1v1 2d shooter that sadly lacks reasons to keep playing it. Despite a perk system, lots of weapons and randomized arenas the game gets tiresome super quick and looses the little charms it might have had in the beginning. One of the few redeeming features of the game is the narrator of the game, Kevin Eldon, that does a great job at making the tutorial interesting.

Most achievements are straight forward, and you will have 90% of them in no time at all but then have the last two (one for a high level perk and one for 100 wins) will take you quite a lot of time and pain to get.

Time to 100%: 3-6 hours

Falls in the same trap of most multiplayer only indie games. Not enough people play it. The developer tries to solve it by giving another copy you can gift. That doesn't really help either because there are similar games like The Showdown Effect or Soldat that are just better. This game is too simple and the controls are off. The art style is cool though.

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...
