If you’ve jumped at the sound of this title, then it’s safe to say that you know what’s coming. Monkeys! In balls! Yes, the sequel to the highly popular Super Monkey Ball has hit the iPhone and gives players more monkey rolling madness than you could throw a banana at. The core gameplay is still the same but there are a number of improvements and additions you’ll love.

Much like the first game, players control their monkeys by using the iPhone's tilt accelerometer to roll around. You’ll need to successfully navigate each game course in time to proceed to the next course. You’ll also need to collect bananas to increase your score and give you an extra life once 10 have been collected.

The game’s improved visuals look fantastic; the bright happy environments will always put a smile on your face. These are also complimented by the game’s bouncy soundtrack and music. There is a lot of game content available to players as well, with around 115 tracks to roll through, 3 mini-games like monkey bowling and a local Wi-fi multiplayer mode for versus play.

If you’re a fan of the series then Super Monkey Ball 2 would be a great addition to your phone. The gameplay is solid and improved from the first Super Monkey Ball and there is enough game content to keep you busy for a while. The constant replays of level completion can get a bit tiresome but these can be easily skipped. Your only hesitation with the game might be its steep price but if you’re a fan then you won’t regret the purchase.
