Leaf Bound: Mecha Monkey Mayhem



Leaf Bound: Mecha Monkey Mayhem is an upcoming iPhone and iPod Touch Game

Battle the evil robots as Yuri makes her way up to the top. Embark on a journey high into the forest collecting power ups and face evil robotic monkeys. Battle evil bosses and save the forest from evil destruction. Only on the iPhone and iPod Touch.


Yuri is always jumping so you control where she goes by moving your finger side to side. You bounce off leafs to advance higher into the stage and to get to the boss. On your way you can stomp on Monkeys to destroy them but watch out for their coconuts because if they hit your head you'll lose a life. Collecting items in certain combinations will give your character special abilities or power ups.

I came across this game by searching for upcoming iPhone games on YouTube. I'm currently beta testing it and it's a really addictive, fun game. It's kind of like Doodle Jump/Papi Jump but it's more hectic and has Mecha Monkeys! You can fall down though so the Monkeys are you biggest threat.

You can find more information at http://www.leafbound.com/.

Hello Kamazar,

I'm new here so let me introduce myself. My name is Dang, I'm the web developer and technical artist for Leaf Bound.

The artist that designed the character "Yuri", has a background in Japanese comic art. We wanted to give this game a Japanese character feel and twist it a little with the Monkeys. It is a different style approach.

We are in our final stages of completely the game. We are looking to submit the game to apple for review by the end of the week.

We'll keep everyone posted.

Thanks, Palfince for the post!

I added two more screenshots of levels 4 and 5 which look great. I think that this game is really a great version of Doodle Jump and Winterbells but with more action!

That's a great art style. It looks like the sprites are fully AA.

I hope nobody misunderstands your video and thinks the action only plays on half the screen! (We can see from the size of your screenshots that the game really is full screen.)
