Blitz 1UP and Anthill Games release Monkey Pole Climb for PC
27 OCTOBER 2011 LEAMINGTON SPA, UK Blitz 1UP have gone totally bananas with the announcement of the final release from their indie games initiative, PC action puzzler Monkey Pole Climb.
Winner of the Best Gameplay category at the International Mobile Gaming Awards, Monkey Pole Climb, is now available worldwide for PC and the mischievous monkeys will soon be scampering to iPhone and iPad. Combining utterly fabulous hand-drawn animation from David Hankin and a funky monkey-themed soundtrack, the game challenges players to help groups of monkeys reach the top of their poles.
Heston the Gorilla loves balloons. He can’t get enough of them and even makes his own. When the monkeys started taking the proverbial out of his hobby he decided it was time to teach his hairy cousins a lesson! If the monkeys can get to the tops of their poles at the same time, Heston the gorilla will give them back their fruity yellow gold… But it won’t be as easy as it sounds, because Heston has concocted a whole range of devious new balloons to try and stop them reaching their goal. The player will have to re-arrange the balloons to help the monkeys get to the top and win back their delicious treasure.
With 100 levels, three game modes, an ever increasing variety of balloon types and bonuses and dozens of medals to win along the way, Monkey Pole Climb is an addictive primate-themed game like no other.
“What’s not to love about monkeys? I can’t get enough of ‘em!” says Blitz 1UP Producer Neil Holmes. “Whether they’re stealing your precious hoard of golden bananas or flinging their faeces at each other in a comical fashion, they’re always entertaining and addictive. Monkey Pole Climb is a super-cute combination of action, puzzles and monkeys which is bound to make everyone go ape!”
Paul Carruthers of Anthill Games adds, “David and I are really excited that after all our work and effort, Monkey Pole Climb is now available. We’ve been busily polishing the game for some time now and finally people will be able to see what we’ve been up to! It’s very difficult to produce a completely new type of game and keep it playable, fun and exciting, but I think we pulled it off with Monkey Pole Climb.”
