Level 13 (Career Mode)

App description

In Monkey Stunt Run, players must navigate their way through an obstacle course, including such things as swinging logs and boulders, moving platforms and shooting arrows. Direction is achieved with an onscreen joystick and swiping up makes the monkey jump.  There are two modes within this game: Career mode and Survival mode. Career mode will take the player through levels of increasing difficulty. In Survival mode, players must last as long as they can in a single game and collect as many bananas as possible. Pressing either the Facebook or Twitter buttons will take you out of the app and into the respective social media platforms.

Reviewers comments

While this game is quite simple in design and objective, at times movement is slightly jolty and can affect the player’s ability to avoid certain obstacles. Certain glitches may also make the monkey miss and/or fall through solid platforms and hence some children may become frustrated with this. The greater concern for parents is the amount of ads in this game. Not only are there small, pop up ads throughout, but there are full screen ads between screen transitions – the ones that you can’t cancel out of until 20 – 30 seconds have passed. Most of these were for other game apps.

In App purchasing

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
