cute but...meh

the music is the best part of this game. I love that song. charming.

i personally find the gameplay frustrating – together, the three or so things you have to keep your eye on at the same time and the two simple controls you have to work are too much for my ADD brain to keep track of at once – and I also did several things that were supposed to earn me free monkey bucks, and I received none. (and yes, I know how these earn-free-in-game-credits things work; I've used them successfully numerous times in other games and they just plain didn't work in Baby Monkey (going backwards on a pig ;).)

so, for me, the game's charming and delightful, but not very playable and just a touch buggy, in a non-critical way.

Simple, but fun for a while

The plot is simple. Takes half a minute to learn and then a little while to enjoy. I got over 100,000 within half an hour and stopped playing, but usually this kind of games couldn't hold my attention for more the couple minutes. So this one is good.
If you are in this kind of games I assume you would get hours passing by.
It looks like the pig a bit off the background when it jumps over pits or cliffs and some times it doesn't jump when I press the button, but this could be that I didn't press enough in advance for jump.

Rad. Just rad.

Best song ever in the whole world. Just wish there was a little more to the game, like for power ups and cool things that you can get for your hard earned coins! I mean, why am I collecting coins? Look at Temple Run 2. A good model for what keeps you playing the game. I also really wish that the pig could still jump even when the monkey is in the air. So annoying that you have to wait for the monkey to land! I mean, what's keeping pig from jumping?!
