JohnB Monkey Kick Off is a stylish flash arcade game created by Niclas Åberg of Totebo Interactive. A monkey juggles a ball with his feet on the side of the screen. Wait for the right moment, then click the mouse to punt the ball as far as you can, sending it flying through forests, deserts, a Monkey Village and beyond. It's a classic game idea made fresh by creative design and a sharing feature that allow you to challenge your friends to beat your top score.

monkeykickoff.gifUnlike other flash games of a similar style (Nanaca Crash comes to mind), Monkey Kick Off features no power-ups, special moves or obstacles to contend with. The gameplay has been streamlined so all you need to worry about is timing the initial click. The ball bouncing physics are quite natural, making the whole experience feel very organic. I just wish I knew how many Monkey Meters are in one human meter...

The best feature of Monkey Kick off is the "Challenge your Monkey Friends" option. Your personal best score is saved across gaming sessions and at any time you can bring your pals in on the fun. Just click the icon and you can create a customized URL to e-mail, post on your blog, or even share in the comments section of a casual gaming website (hint hint). When anyone visits the URL they can watch a replay of your best kick and can try to top your score.

As you kick the ball farther you are treated to new scenery scrolling in the background. Wondering what rests beyond adds a nice element of exploration to the game. A good strategy is to wait for the monkey to juggle the ball above his head, then click when it's even with his chest. Time it right and the ball will soar out of sight. Then just kick back and enjoy the tour.

Monkey Kick Off is a well-executed idea that's a winner for its simplicity and playful design. Try it and get your friends hooked.

Play.

Hey peeps, you can make an active hyperlink to your replays, and some of you have been, thank you! But don't forget to enclose the URL in quotes. Here's an example:

<a href="http://totebo.com/mko.php?c=qpors...">5000</a>

If you follow that as an example, filling in your URL instead, and change the 5000 to your own score, it will work great! =)

Brett - all you did was copy my example. You need to change what's there by adding your own URL that the game gives you, and change the 5000 to the score you got.

Thanks jay, I tried to edit that but it doesn't seem that editing is supported (or at least I couldn't find the button).

Anyway, great entry ! Monkey Kick Off seemed at first less challenging to me than other "aim and fly" games (Manole, Nanaca Crash or Yetisports). That fact that a very fast but low shot is less efficient than a higher, slower one was kind of frustrating to me.

But it definitely is as addictive as the other ones !

Will there be a tag in JIG for this kind of games ? Hope so :)

Some tips:
Don't kick the ball as it's going up - wait until its coming down to kick.
Wait until he kicks it high, and kick it once it's level with his head.
You may get more initial speed with a lower kick, but friction will slow it down a lot.
To get an idea of your score, see where the ball first touches the ground. If it passes the 1000 mark before it hits, you'll have a score of probably 4500+.

I'm actually quite proud of myself.

The only tip that I have to offer is one, kick the ball only when it's been putted the absolute highest it can be, and then kick it when it's just about level with your head. I'd also like to say that once you kick the ball decently far (over 4000) then the monkey will begin to kick the ball well over his head, shown here.

Good luck.

How long do you have to wait for the monkey to kick it over his head?

Score: 0 (0 votes) Vote up Vote down Report this comment Reply

you know .. its weird some computers he kicks it over his head.. and some don't . the best time to kick it is when the ball is in the light area in the background just under the palm tree and little cliff. but you just have to wait til he gives it a good kick. which could take a while.

5805 and tried about 1000 times and never matched it again... my best since was about 5500. once you play this many times you know exactly the highest point the ball can go as the monkey dribbles the ball at which point (in my experience) you should time your kick. for those that "really" beat 5805, maybe it has something to do with a faster computer. good luck, these simple games are fun.... Any other suggestions?
