There are two game modes:

Get Back! is an endless runner variety in which you tilt your device for forward momentum and tap to jump. You play as a mouse riding a banana. I've played this twice and can't quite determine what it is I'm supposed to be doing as far as what I want to hit or avoid. My first game lasted about two minutes, my second game about four minutes with a score of 192,940.

Monko Quest is more a mini platformer. There are 72 levels that are small and your task is to get to the right side and collect all three gems by jumping on bricks and enemies while avoiding pitfalls. Controls are a left/right directional arrows and jump buttons.

Controls are not bad. Doesn't stack up with LoE or Mikey Shorts but its not really fare to compare it to those. I would say no issues with responsiveness. Music has a music box charm to it. Graphics are the true selling point to this game. They are quite charming but the runner lacks enough danger elements to make it satisfying and the platformers, although are short, are getting a bit more challenging as they go along. (I am finished with 13 of 72 in about five minutes or so)

I do want to add that there are two more games promised (under construction). The main menu is a bit awkward to navigate as there are only cute things to click on, most will send you to Facebook or what-not.

All in all I would give this a soft recommendation if your in love with the graphics and not expecting too much. I am curious as to the other two game modes. I'm hoping one is a longer platform. I give the game a C+.

Don't worry, this game goes free twice a month or so. I'm pretty sure I've DL'ed it and completely forgotten about it.

Hmmm. Just wanted to play the 'mario' game but so far can't get that working. The endless runner game is dull. The menu system is confusing as anything. So far it's a waste of 69p!!

I swipe down on the Mario game and press 1 to start that level but nothing

@CygnetSeven:
We appreciate for your time for the long review, we add "Custom Game" in Get Fruits Back mode to let player choose which stage, expansion theme and character they like. and "Quick Game" for the all random setting, also improve the menu design.
Thank you

@psj3809 @CygnetSeven:
in Monko Quest mode (Mario mode)
After you hit the level 1, loading screen will show up, then comes the prologue.
after the prologue the game will be start.

level 1-18 are kind of tutorial levels, challenging levels from level 19.
And you will need take hours(maybe 2-3) to get all melons, unlock & clear all EXP levels and challenge levels.
you can select character at top left corner before you hit the levels.

Now it has:
72 Story levels - include boss battle, every level contains 3 Golden Melon,
and some stages contain 1 or more power ups to help
you pass the level.
9 EXP levels - you need 5-red ringed 50 levels to unlock them all.
15 Challenge levels - you need get 3 crystal rings in same color to unlock
5/15 levels, now totally 9 crystal rings hide at tricky
spot in the 72 story levels.
Try find out the secret level.
new stage will coming by updates.

in Get Fruits Back mode (endless run)
you play as a monkey ride on banana, hit the mice to get the fruits back.
each time you hit a mouse or container, they would pop out some fruits.
on left side there's a level quota, get the fruits exceed the quota before you reach the goal.

you could upgrade your equipment by collecting the banana-rings.
after you upgrade 3 of your equipment, fill out the energy bar by collecting more banana-rings to active your super equipment.(the icon at bottom left)

the scene can be change by click the buttons which on your first sight when you start the app.(hit them & the scene changes after loading)

I'll try make the menu more clear.
thanks for your feed back



@All:
Sorry for the characters look not like monkeys, I wish to make them cute so I didn't give them the big ears. make it hard to say they are monkeys but they are =)

suggestions, comment & bug report are appreciated
thank you guys, have fun.
