Do you have what it takes to become the ultimate swinger? Now is your chance with Swingaling!

Simple controls and the casual pick up and play style makes this one of the great games available on the iPhone.

Take on the role of Swingaling and travel through the forbidden jungle as you attempt to beat the world record in distance traveled. But be careful: There are some unfriendly fiends patrolling the forest who dont appreciate your swinger lifestyle. This game is about gaining momentum and seeing how far you can go!

The addictive nature of this game may cause unrest and overexcitement. But dont worry, since you can challenge your friends and family to beat your own online high scores.

USER REVIEWS:

"Swingaling joins the top tier of iDevice games that are actually worth mentioning. It ranks among the very best of pick-up and play games that the App Store offers and I can see myself playing this just as much as, if not more than, Doodle Jump or Canabalt which were my top casual pick-up and play games."

"Pocket Monkey delivers another solid hit."

"Suprisingly fun! This game is right up there with Doodle Jump in terms of addictiveness!"

"Come to think of it, reminds me of Sway. Very fun game."

PRESS REVIEWS:

The one more try factor was definitely there for us, and OpenFeint integration meant we could compete with other players. Plus, the game is rendered in the great hand-drawn art style unique to many of Pocket Monkeys games. - SlideToPlay.com

I must say this has to be Pocket Monkeys most addictive game yet... a game that takes the Rope N Fly formula to a whole new level. Overall, Swingaling was an interesting experience that I quite enjoyed. - noDpad.com

Its definitely one of those Pringles style games I dare you to try playing it just once. - iphonelife.com
****************************
Tips/Hints:
-You may find it easier to grapple and swing by using your right thumb against the top branches.

- Slow and steady is the best approach to the game. Even the best of players struggle when moving too quickly.
