Story games are always preferred over a simple one as most users get attached with the player and the concept has been repeated over several times. Even a story attached to the game is sufficient to attract the users. It’s not required that you actually follow the story in the game as well. Just a description of the different characters, especially hero works. However, if there are new twists being created as the game progresses such as in Galaxia Chronicles, then it’s a bonus. Our app for today follows a similar story that you are a monkey and your friends have been held captive by the lord in the Kong castle in the Kong Island. So, now it’s your job to bring them back alive. Let’s see how you do it.


The app we are talking about is MonkeyOpopLite. The name’s a bit confusing and clustered but the app goes well. It has been developed by Zilliar. The app is compatible with iPad only and requires iOS 5.0 or later version. We don’t know why the developer has restricted the app to iPad only. We agree on the fact that a bigger display is better but the game interface can be well interacted on iPhone as well.


Your journey kicks-off in those so called dungeons which resemble to the dragon levels of Mario but certainly with better graphics. While the first few levels are a bit easy and boring, the game suddenly gears up with a bang. There are new hurdles and elements which make this game very addictive and interesting. You are using tilt controls and therefore you need to be exact or otherwise, you can easily lose your life against those fire balls and digs. But you need to be fast as well; otherwise you may not get enough stars to unlock the next level.


There are two game modes: Play and Story. While the play mode has about 27 levels out of which first few are unlocked at the start, Story mode advances smoothly. There is also a Pop mode where you have to tap the falling monkeys and score as high as you can. The graphics of the game are very crispy and real. You may take it as a reason for the compatibility of the app with iPad only. However, we think that the gameplay of the app is slightly on a lower side as compared to the graphics and it seems like the developer mostly devoted his time for designing it.

The app is available for free in the App Store but that doesn’t mean that it’s not worth downloading. We think that a similar app can be found as paid in the App Store as well. You can also share your scores on Facebook and Twitter. So, go watch out for this one. It’s surely worth the space on your device.

Pros: crisp graphics; many levels of gameplay; free.

Cons: average gameplay.
