No Monkey Business, Just Monkeys, and Business

Crazy, stupid, fun.  That is all I could think while playing the offering from Size Five Games (the makers of a game we reviewed long ago called “Ben There, Dan That!”) called “Gun Monkeys.”  Now, I know that words like “crazy” and especially “stupid” typically have a negative connotation, but let me be clear that this is not the case today.  Yes, this game is crazy, nearly certifiably insane.  Yes, it makes little to no sense from a story perspective.  No, none of that matters, because while I’m playing all I can do is laugh and have fun.

“Race the Sun is an intense action game that could be described as a mash-up of Star Fox and Temple Run with a community focus.”

– Price point feels a bit high

A Virus Named TOM
