Fantasoft has announced that the sequel to their platform game Monkey Shines is nearing beta, after a long development cycle. Monkey Shines 2: Gorilla Warfare features more of the same great platform action, with 16-bit color, all new animations and sound, and much more. Here is the announcement:

Flying Mikros Interactive and Fantasoft are
proud to announce that their new action game Monkey Shines 2: Gorilla
Warfare due for release in late fall 2000 for Macintosh will soon
enter the beta testing stage.
The game is a sequel to the award winning game Monkey Shines
currently available for Macintosh and Windows. This time around you
play Darwin, Bonzo's nephew, and there's quite a few new surprises.
You've got to go through time finding pieces of the map that leads to
Simian City so you can rescue it from the evil robots that have
overtaken it.

Features include:

  • Multiple layer parallax scrolling
  • 16 bit colour
  • Smooth 30 frames per second
  • A new hero, Darwin, with a lot of new tricks
  • Ballistic bananas to take out your enemies
  • And much much more!
