I thought the falling in the water music was hilarious.
Since you can't beat the game it wasn't as fun though. Audio was good. I really liked the graphics though!

snesgaard says ...

Great water sound in this one :)
I liked the artwork, but the graphics was rather glitchy. Dunno if it's a problem with the game or it's just Ubuntu that don't like flash.

rik says ...

The graphics are really very nice (save for the monkeys walk anim), look very Yoshi's Island! Quite slow paced though, and nothing to do but drown him at the end. :D Great use of parallax scrolling with the background btw!

brian says ...

Very pretty, absolutely fantastic music and lovely use of parallax scrolling on multiple levels. Gameplay is obviously a bit bare and I guess it doesn't innovate but it's a great accomplishment for 48 hours.

smn says ...

Beautiful graphics and music on this one!

Tenoch says ...

Now this is insanely cute, and the music is nice.
But yeah, not a game, really...

Mstrp2ez says ...

Top notch graphics, good music, however no real gameplay and no way to win? Good job never the less!

increpare says ...

I ran to the right then I fell in the water. The monkey sounds like an air-raid siren. Maybe it's not a monkey but really a WW2 bomber?

arielsan says ...

I like the graphics, music and the timelapse, is is really nice to see how you create the assets of the game, I wish I could do some graphics like that :P

dgfitch says ...

Like everyone sez, amazing art.

treeman says ...

The graphics are just beautiful, I wish I could make graphics like that. Nice music too.

Entar says ...

Good graphics and music, but that jump sound gets old quick.

SonnyBone says ...

This was nifty. Too bad you didn't have more time to make a real game out of it.

pekuja says ...

Well, the graphics are beautiful and the music is a joy to listen to, but it's not much of a game. I hope we'll see a real game come out of this.

Jonathan Whiting says ...

Attractive, but sadly very little substance indeed.

Selkie says ...

Nice graphics and good audio, it's flaw point is... everything else :(

Endurion says ...

What falling in the water music?

Looks very lovely, the music is great, there just is not much of a game here. Also, it's a tad sluggish (my machine probably).

jplur says ...

Humor points for calling it "Monkey Islands"

jfroco says ...

Great name and graphics. Excellent music. Unfortunately you couldn't add a goal :(

Morre says ...

Very nice graphics, and pretty cool audio. As you know, of course, there's no gameplay in here. :)

demonpants says ...

Very cool, even though you didn't finish it. The graphics style is absolutely gorgeous. I loved the parallax in the back and the gameplay was actually pretty addicting even though being pretty much a Mario clone. I wish you'd have finished this.

Tom 7 says ...

Really impressive artwork! I made it to the end and jumped in the drink. :) For what it's worth, I thought the horizontal movement speed was too slow and the jump seemed unbelievably high. Wish there had been more to do...

eli says ...

Graphics and audio are excellent!!! Great title, too. Would be fun to have the monkey move faster, and some actual gameplay.

Tozy says ...

Please, finish this game! Music and graphics are great!

someone says ...

Love the sound and graphics. Good use of parallax too.
