Manic Monkey Mayhem set to peel onto other gaming platforms

Hull, UK Yorkshire based Independent development studio, The Code Monkeys are to fling their pick-up-and-play party game, Manic Monkey Mayhem on to other gaming platforms in 2010.

Following a successful launch on Nintendo’s WiiWare platform, Manic Monkey Mayhem is set to ape the fur-spitting fun of its party game onto Apple’s iPhone/iPod touch with a mini version for Sony’s new portable download console, PSPgo in Q1 2010.

“Our fury monkey friends have been well received by the press and players alike so we have kept them well stocked up with bananas. Manic Monkey Mayhem was submitted to Apple recently and we are giggling like apes at the prospect of the game being released on the iPhone, as well as other gaming platforms in the New Year” commented Janet Smith, Administrative Director at The Code Monkeys.

Free Manic Monkey Mayhem wallpapers are available to download for the iPhone via the app store. Chose your favourite monkey character or screen shot.

Manic Monkey Mayhem is vibrant looking, pick-up-and-play, evening of fun with more bananas than the produce section in Morrison’s. It’s also compatible with the Balance Board which offers a perfect way to peel off a few layers after the festive season indulgence.

With a range of games types to unlock, Manic Monkey Mayhem should definitely be enjoyed as one of the recommended 5-a-day.
