App description: Rasta Monkey is featured by Apple under Best Swinging Games!
*** Check out our new game Eco-Punk! ***
Rasta Monkey is by far the most fun action platformer out there! with perfect physics based gameplay that you will love, hand rolled in Jamaican flavor.

But don't be fooled by Rasta Monkeys amazingly cute kawaii graphics and relaxing dub music - This game is only for you highly trained monkeys! Now Jam down and make the selecta!

You are Rasta Monkey, the extraordinarily happy Rastafarian Monkey who swings around and grab onto branches using your awesome physics based monkey-mon skills.
You snag some delicious fruit along the way to make tasty fruit shakes for your Dada, General RastaMonkey the 3rd. Him too old to collect dem fruits anymore so he needs your help:

"You need to collect dem fruits for mi special fruit-shake before mi head go CHAKA CHAKA! ... Now go lung, make yah madda proud!"

The perfect physics gameplay in Rasta Monkey is truly awesome! Everything you do in this game, including moving, jumping, climbing, swinging on ropes, fighting monsters and more, is based on the manipulation of gravity and other forces of nature.

Wow, cool! Thanks for the giveaway, I like the character design for the Rasta Monkey.

Btw, I thought the game was Eco Punk, now it's E-Punk? Why the name change?

Thanks! I did all the graphics for Rasta Monkey
We changed the name to E-Punk after we did small test that revealed that more people prefer that name, but we changed it back now since everybody was getting nostalgic about the old name in the forum thread

Yeah, I got Eco Punk after this because I liked it so much (btw, I much prefer Eco Punk to E-Punk) and I like Eco Punk even more. Great game, so much fun and so addictive. You guys have made some really fun casual games with wonderful visual style!

Edit: I also wrote you a positive review and rating for Rasta Monkey. I hope some more people will do so to help raise the rating...
