Sad monkey, happy monkey, little monkey, tiny monkey... these are monkeys of many hats but can you figure out what will make these weepy-eyed simians jump up and down in glee? You're tasked with doing just that, and in as few clicks as possible, in Happy GO Monkey 6, the wonderfully interactive continuation of Pencil Kids' popular point-and-click puzzle game.
In many of the 15 self-contained stages, something about the scene isn't quite right—at least not in the viewpoint of the unhappy monkey. Scan the scene to find usable objects and clues to the puzzles. The cursor usually changes over action spots but doesn't always; still, solutions are easily thought up. Frustration might rear up when you realize not all tasks are easily done in one fell swoop... or are they?
Some ingenuity and careful planning should help your click economy even as certain mini-games demand more. Unlock the 16th level and your treat is a short adventure to collect 30 coins that feels like a true bonus. Although the challenge is minimal, the interactivity is tremendous, plus there's something about the pathos of Robin Vencel's adorable primates that cannot be resisted. After all, the joy on those sweet faces is all the reward that's needed.
