Lumiappaday #205: Super Monkey Ball demoed on the Nokia Lumia 800

| June 7, 2012 | 2 Replies

We’ve got a demo here of the now classic Super Monkey Ball, an Xbox Live title of an accelerometer based maze game.

I’m not quite sure why but the controls seem to be no where near as good as any accelerometer based game I’ve played on WP, though I do recall it’s also quite difficult on other platforms. It’s a shame as it’s priced only at £0.79 and looks great.

#205) Super Monkey Ball 

Price:  £0.79



Developer Blurb:

 Let’s roll!  Guide a cute little monkey encased in a transparent ball to victory by tilting and rolling him through a variety of slopes and turns. You must navigate a large variety of obstacle courses to reach goal lines within set time limits.  Collect as many bananas as you can along the way and you’ll be able to increase your remaining lives.  Play through five worlds and 110 stages, designed to be fun for both first-time players and long-time Super Monkey Ball fans.  Enjoy rich 3D graphics with an easy-to-master control system that utilizes the accelerometer inside your device.  Insanely fun and addicting!
