Gorilla Monkey Crunch Lite takes you into the world of Gunter the Gorilla who dances and jumps on his bridge deep in a tropical forest. Gunter's bridge overhangs a river that has very animated Monkeys floating past on rafts. Hear them scream. Gunter is very mischievous. He throws coconuts at the Monkeys in an attempt to knock them off of their rafts. But being an ape he sometimes misses and the coconuts are re-launched at Gunter, often breaking the bridge. Now things get tricky, Gunter has to jump over the gaps in the bridge and the bananas that the Monkeys throw up onto the bridge. And he has to do all this before the timer runs out. Fortunately for Gunter he has some tools to help him. He has the timers that randomly appear to extend his time and the toolkits that float down the river that he can hit with the coconuts that will fix the bridge.
Gorilla Monkey Crunch features open-ended game play which means that as long as you get the timers and have Gorilla lives remaining you could play forever.

Wow. This game is awful.
Really nice graphics! That is about the only good thing to say. The rest of it is bad. The gameplay is poorly executed. The timing of the monkey using the accelerometer is really dodgy. The overall gameplay concept is not great - I can't see potential beyond the first 5 seconds of the game. The most problematic part is that there is no strategy to the game. The monkeys random throw backs of the coconuts becomes really annoying. It forces the player to constantly be jumping after every throw as opposed to enjoying the satisfaction of bombing the monkeys. If the whole conceit of the game is to crunch monkeys - then they should at least allow you to enjoy it a bit before they give you no chance to do anything. And all the other bits - like getting the toolbox - it's never explained - are you supposed to drop a coconut on it or tap it? And you'll never actually get a coconut on it because your attacks are so lame and slow, that by the time you try to hit it, you're already getting it thrown back at you by a monkey! Not even sure if an update can save this.
Still room for improvement
This games is ok and will provide some entertainment. I think the developer's went a little overboard with the controls as this app requires tilting, touching the screen and trying to do all of this in a small space makes it a little difficult. My kids (5 and 7) would have fun with this since they have smaller fingers. This is not a game to jump straight into. The developer's have taken the time to create a "How to play" page that explains what the controls are and object of the game. Overall, this app will provide entertainment and a little frustration trying to master the controls.
Not much fun unless you get good at it
The first 20 times I played this app I was furious at the hard to control controls. Over a long period of time and practice, I finally got to last over a minute in the game. The monkeys are really hard to hit without making them throw the coconut back, making you fall of the bridge unless you have perfect reflexes. Not worth a buck by anyone's standards. If this app isn't free, don't buy it unless you're willing to waste a lot of time getting no where.
