Monkey GO Happy Marathon 4
Monkey GO Happy Marathon 4 is here! The latest game in Pencilkids' point-and-click puzzle series is just as whimsical and silly as ever. The basic formula is the same: pick your hero, choose a hat (the more outlandish, the better) and embark on a bunch of crazy adventures. The monkey will always start out sad, and it's your duty to brighten its day by making funny things happen. Now, your monkey is a bit of a strange fella. In some levels it'll want to be Robin Hood (though we all know Robin Hood is a fox), punishing bullies and meanies, and in others it will be amused by a childish prank. Primates these days, eh?
If you've played any of the earlier instalments, you'll be familiar with the gameplay: use the objects in the level to the best of your imagination and watch your monkey jump with joy. This time around you'll also be taking care of seven teensy apes who came along for the ride. There are three coins in each level, and you can collect them in order to buy toys for the mini-monkeys. They don't take part in the actual gameplay, but seeing them playing around with their beach balls and their hula hoops adds an extra dose of cuteness. All the other Monkey GO Happy signature elements are still there: the big, bright, colourful levels, the simple but effective puzzles and the wacky humour. It's as much fun as you can expect from a sulking monkey, and it will probably bring out the prankster in you. Just don't start throwing pies into people's faces and leaving whoopee cushions around, because no one will believe you when you say a chimp told you to do it.
