Flying Mikros Interactive and Fantasoft announced that
Monkey Shines 2: Gorilla Warfare is done. The game went golden master, and Fantasoft is now accepting orders for the title.
If you’re a fan of “old school” arcade-style games made popular by countless coin-operated games in the 1980’s, or by cartridge-based console systems like the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis, you’ll want to monkey around with Gorilla Warfare.
Gorilla Warfare is a side-scrolling action game sporting multiple layer parallax scrolling (which helps to create a depth of field effect). The game sports 16-bit color graphics, 30 frames per second animation, and lots more. A level editor is also included so players can craft their own challenges.
System requirements call for a 200MHz 604e or better with a RAGE Pro graphics card or better; 15MB available RAM; and System 7.5.3 or higher. The developers note that the game “plays really well on iMac and iBook.”
A new demo is available for download, as well. An earlier version of the demo was released when the game was still in development — this version is based on the final game. The demo contains 50 percent of the prehistoric era of the game, while the full CD contains 5 different eras.
Monkey Shines 2: Gorilla Warfare is available for purchase on CD-ROM for US$25. An
online order form can be used to place an order for the game.
