With a variety of game modes across both single player and multiplayer, Manic Monkey Mayhem is set to be this autumn’s must have party game for Wii players of all ages.‘Greatest Ape’ sees each player begin with a stockpile of bananas and three lives with the winner being the last monkey left standing on their podium. In‘Minute Monkey’, all players have unlimited lives but the game is played against the clock in 1, 3 or 5 minute matches. The winner is the one that scores the most points before the clock runs down. The third game mode is‘Ape Team’ where players are divided up in to two teams, with the objective being to defeat the other side by taking all three lives of every one of your opponents.
