Banana fueled jet propelling farts, trampoline elephants and palm tree catapults... all this and more could be yours to enjoy if you try Monkey Flight by Donut Games. Ok, ok, perhaps it's not quite so compelling when you say it that way, but flinging a monkey is far more fun than it sounds.

Monkey Flight is a high-scoring catapult game in the same vein as games like Crazy Penguin Catapult and scores you on the amount of fruit you pick up while bouncing around the screen. There are several obstacles that will end your run quickly, but sadly there's no real control besides the occasional tap triggered banana fart, bouncy clouds and trampoline elephants to keep you moving.

As you'd expect of a monkey-themed game it's set in a jungle environment with a basic 2D art style and little real animation. The art is definitely bright and fun, but with the gameplay being so simple it'd be nice to have more detail in the animations or special effects. An absolute highlight of Monkey Flight are the challenges and subsequent "Fun Stats" generated over time and for those keen on high-scores Donut Games have been regularly purging cheaters to keep the boards legitimate.

Ultimately Monkey Flight is a fairly standard and simple catapult game. The challenges are definitely the game's best feature and casual gamers after a mindless game will appreciate the cut-down gameplay and cheerful art style.
