    Surprisingly fun...got good 3D action going on for the first level [​IMG]

    I've not played much more, but it's better than half the movie cash-in games [​IMG]

    Is this a fully true 3D DS game? No top-down stuff or anything? If anyone has any screens of the DS game in action, I'd appreciate it. My DS is broken and I'll not be getting a new one for at least another week.

    Maybe when you want to make a movie game (or any bad game for that matter) there is a surcharge, and then all you do is give them a couple pictures of what your game should have in it, and it pumps out a game

    Of course, if even one person says its not that bad, I have to at least give it a try.

    Wall E and Speed Racer weren't great, but better than usual.

    Who can resist such a cute game? [​IMG]

    I've played through the second level, and I must say that it's a level or two above most of this movie cash-in shovelware crap. It's a 2D sidescroller for the most part. For some reason, this monkey can do a crazy ball-up attack (that's similar to Sonic) to kill enemies. You get three hearts a life, and you can randomly find hearts around the level if you run low. The level wasn't very hard, just kind of long.
    Since the levels are long, the music can get a tad annoying repeating itself over and over again (even though the random monkey sounds are kind of funny).

    So, meh, it's an alright game.

    There's only one thing I can think of when I hear the title "Spacechimps" and that is:

    KARL PILKINGTON!

    I rest my case

    Its a touch boring, was expecting much worse as they publisher didn't bother showing any media of it.

    Children will probably like it.

    Make no mistake, it's still shovelware. It's just slightly better than usual shovelware.

    It's surprisingly good, I think, and challenging. The first level I played seemed to flow similarly to one of the Shin`en platformers, but the mechanics and level design are a lot more interesting. They ripped wall jumping right out of Mario, but hell, if you're gonna steal someone's ideas, steal from the best; it's implemented very well, too. The attacking is also very fun.

    The visuals are technically attractive but lack imagination. Still, it's a good-looking game, for the most part. I'm probably going to play through it. The challenge of the platforming has gotten my attention; let's see if the rest of the game can keep it.
