Amazing Monkey King
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Amazing Monkey King is an app by Team Refly that aims to bring to life the ancient Chinese stories of the notorious Monkey King himself. In this game, players enjoy the role of SonoGong (Monkey King) and travel through mythical kingdoms with him.
Amazing Monkey King lets iOS users enter the world of SonOGong, travelling and fighting off enemies. Featuring seven different bosses that deter players from completing their missions, Amazing Monkey King also has over 100 different stages to complete throughout the game. Users should certainly find that it takes them a good deal of time and effort to successfully “beat” the app.
Various “modes” can be selected in Amazing Monkey King also, allowing players to choose from different playing styles. For instance, Infinite Mode pits players against a seemingly endless stream of attacking enemies while Rescue Mode is a mission during which players focus on guiding a monk to save a village of people.
While playing Amazing Monkey King for the purpose of this review, I found that selecting between different playing modes was easily accomplished. Additionally, an instructional tutorial is offered at the beginning of the game in order to help first time users out a bit. While playing Amazing Monkey King was not as intuitive as it ideally could have been, this tutorial helped to somewhat combat this minor issue.
Appearance and Layout:
Anime fans will be thrilled at the graphics of Amazing Monkey King. Featuring fun, comic-styled intros to each challenge, this app’s playful illustrations go perfectly with the storyline of the mythical Monkey King.
The in-game graphics are also decently detailed and aesthetically pleasing, and the horizontally-oriented layout of the app works well to improve the fluidity of the movement of characters.
Navigating through this app is also fairly easy to do, with a home screen directing players to the various game modes.
At $1.99, Amazing Monkey King is definitely more expensive than many other game apps. Because of this price, most iOS users probably won’t really view Amazing Monkey King as an app worth installing.
For diehard fans of the Monkey King tales, this app can be a great addition to their iOS collection. Overall, Amazing Monkey King is a fun app, and one that will likely be most enjoyed by users already familiar with stories of SonOGong.
Amazing Monkey King iPhone app requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
