Play through five worlds and 110 stages, designed to be fun for both first-time players and long-time Super Monkey Ball fans. Enjoy rich 3D graphics with an easy-to-master control system that utilizes the accelerometer inside your device. Insanely fun and addicting!

Who said anything about seeing through the eye of the monkey? The controls are way too sensitive but I've never thought they were screwy... it came naturally after playing the previous Monkey Ball games on Gamecube.

Either way, prepare for frustration cause this game gets HARD.

With all the newer games that have been released since SMB's prime, it's hard to see this climbing back up the charts...but who knows, I guess it has the brand name...

Nice, a comment that could appear in a thread about ANY game on the iPhone, or anywhere for that matter.

Thanks to a very useful 'feature' in SMB I have ground through opening all the bonus levels 3 times on separate installs. A few of the levels are incredibly annoying, but once everything is unlocked, going for times can be pretty fun, and is actually less stressful .

If you haven't played it, this decent price drop should be good motivation to do so. I don't find the controls 'screwy' at all, it's just that getting all bananas on some levels in one life as required, is ridiculously hard. Thank goodness for the die then press home button feature allowing you to take as many lives as you like.

I've had no issues with the controls on this game. Very worth the 3.99

Wait for livefire, even though this is a good game.

I'd say get this and other small titles and by the time you finish those, Livefire may have a price drop!
