Monkey Wall: A Fun & Unique Take On Puzzle Games

By Sean Robbins (SeanBird) Host / Executive Producer of

Like many great games, Monkey Wall is easy to pick up and play but is tough to master. However, you will have so much fun along the way, that you will enjoy every minute of it.

When I first began playing this puzzle game, I was reminded of the Japanese game show Nōkabe (known in America as Hole In The Wall). However there is a lot more strategy required if you want to excel.

Your main objective is to contort your character in the right direction so that he or she goes through the wall (as opposed to crashing into the wall). To help ease your way into the challenge, you are given help with the first three puzzles; after that, it is up to you to figure out the correct solution. As the levels progress, the speed increases and the puzzles become more elaborate.

This game also offers a lot of customization and replayability. You get to select from a wide variety of characters each with their own unique traits and puzzle levels.

This game is at its best when played in handheld mode.

When you consider the endless fun you can have, $4.99 is a real value. This game is the perfect addition to any puzzle fan's library!
