Applelinks recently posted a review of Burning Monkey Solitaire 2005, a Freeverse solitaire game known as much for the antics of its in-game monkeys as for its card game options. Here's a bit from the article:
That's always been the strength of Freeverse card games, after all: the presentation. As I've mentioned before, the monkey characters became an ensemble cast, and you'll find yourself growing to know their names and welcoming their return in updated versions. Considering that you can click on each monkey on the screen for various comments and animated sequences, you may even soon have your favorite. It's as odd (and disturbing) as when you're watching Family Feud and you realize you actually care who wins.BMS 2005 features over 26 games of solitaire including favorites like Klondike, Freecell, Pyramid, and 52 Pickup, not to mention the antics of its trademark monkey characters.

It's also a bit telling. I mean, it's kind of like popping some corn for a snack, then snacking on Doritos while you're waiting for the popcorn to finish. Solitaire is a diversion game for most, I'd wager, and yet Burning Monkey Solitaire 2005 is full of its own diversions, you know, in case you're growing tired of that intense solitaire action. Not only can you click on the monkeys, but you can type in secret words to release Easter eggs (hint, learn the names of the Freeverse staff). There was one gaming session where I spent more time trying to release Easter eggs than actually playing the game.
