Today we are pleased to announced that you can have just as much fun as monkeys do (minus the poo) with the release of [Register or Login to view links]'s Chimpact on PlayStation Mobile.
In Chimpact, you play as a little monkey who has to bounce around and collect items through a variety of levels to make it home safely. The game is absolutely gorgeous and the gameplay is simple, yet challenging. Chimpact is a new age platformer that has gameplay reminiscent of similar games from the 16-bit era.
The game features:
• Simple, one-touch gameplay
• Amazing visuals and character design
• 48 fun-filled levels to complete
• Invigorating jungle-themed background music
• Gem Quest and Totem Trial game modes
• Hidden items and achievements to unlock
Kevin Green, the Lead Artist for Chimpact, had this to say about the game in an interview with Pocket Gamer:
We were looking at a few things with Chimpact. We were looking at something more family friendly - 'traditional' games, let's say.
We'd been doing a lot of very grim stuff in the past at other companies. 'Gangster games' and World War III... they were all fun to work on, but we were looking to do something that wasn't all about slaughtering everybody for once. We wanted to do something cheerful.
It's very much a kind of 'back to the old school' feel. The new platform and business model gives us the opportunity to get back to the kind of thing we did years ago, but in a modern way.
PS Vita owners will be able to download Chimpact from the PS Mobile section of PlayStation Store; owners of PlayStation-certified devices can obtain it through the PlayStation Mobile Store - [Register or Login to view links] for full instructions.
