Monkey sad. Make monkey happy! That's your simple goal in Monkey GO Happy, a puzzle/arcade-style hybrid from Robin Vencel at Pencil Kids, creator of the Bowja the Ninja series along with Retardo and the Iron Golem. Pick mushrooms, find treasure, shoot toy ducks, set off fireworks, fire cannons and loads more, all in the name of big monkey smiles. It's a bit like the Four Second series of games, only without the intense speed and with more mammals.
With each level you are presented with a sad, sad monkey. Nobody likes to see a simian cry, right?! Using the environment and objects laying around, solve a series of simple (and rather obvious) puzzles to bring a grin to the ape's face. Many of the levels aren't puzzles at all, just simple toys or easy reflex games you can conquer without any effort.
The scenes in Monkey GO Happy are quite basic and present little to no challenge for most players. But the fun isn't in solving puzzles, it's making a monkey smile by pulling off wacky stunts. Mindless fun, pure and simple, but it's a fifteen minute coffee break well spent!
