In an effort to expand our review base far beyond just commercial releases, IMG has published a review of Monkey Shines 2, a title released by indie publisher Fantasoft. This 2D side scroller mixes the familiar elements of that style of play with surreal and interesting additions. Here is an excerpt:

In my heart of hearts, I've always wanted to be a heroic, time-traveling, banana-tossing monkey with a rocket pack. Monkey Shines 2: Gorilla Warfare from Fantasoft has made this dream finally come true. I can die a happy man.

Monkey Shines 2: Gorilla Warfare is the latest 2-D side-scrolling action game from Fantasoft. As a gorilla named Darwin, the player's goal is to rescue the ape populace of Symian City from enslavement at the hands of evil robots. In order to reach Symian City, players must retrieve pieces of a map scattered across various historical periods. Each world contains 12 map pieces, which, when gathered, will activate Darwin's time machine, transporting him to the next level and closer to Symian City itself.

Read the rest of the review for more details, and be sure to grab the demo and give the game a try on your own.
