Mad Monkey better explanation

Here is a better explanation and gameplay video for iPad users...

Mad Monkey contains very simple gameplay based on an old arcade game. You use your finger to slide a group of baskets back and forth trying to catch funny items that a monkey or monkeys drop. You must catch enough and get enough points to gain stars that unlock further levels. If you drop the items three times you lose. Each level has new monkeys and challenging twists.

The first monkey slides back and forth on top a forest, the circus monkey cartwheels out of the way if you try to keep under him in the circus scene, the lab scene has two cloned monkeys after an experiment gone wrong and the last level has two ninja monkeys that disappear and reappear while dropping sushi! In each level, the monkey(s) get frustrated as you catch the items, spouting funny little sayings and increasing speed between rounds until the gameplay becomes is blazing fast.

The gameplay is based on the Atari game "Kaboom!" that my wife loves to play and she insisted I create something new with similar gameplay that her and the kids would love. I then had my 4 kids and several friends play the game to get it to a challenging yet fun balance.

Hope that covers everything….It went into review today and I'm hoping the update will be out by this weekend with gamecenter, better point balance, the new hidden monkey and his speed bonus level.

I plan on adding many more twists and levels in the future.
