Beware of IAPs
For a game that's tapping into the endless runner craze, I feel that Banana Kong has a lot of charm. The theming for each area seems to be very cohesive, and the music is awesome. The gameplay is also very fun and easy to get into.
I got the game when it first came out, and I found it to be a game that justified the asking price. If I'd known that they were going to add the revive IAP mechanic, though, I would not have purchased this game. These IAPs not only represent a gross business practice, they also interrupt the gameplay experience. Whenever you die on a run, a message pops up asking if you would like to revive, forcing you to either spend a heart or wait for the box to disappear before you can continue playing. This mechanic makes me feel less compelled to continue playing the game each time I die.
It is a shame that the devs felt the need to include this feature, because it mars an otherwise wonderful experience.
All Hail Banana Kong!
A brilliantly designed app for the Donkey Kong Country Universe. The stunning animation hardly matters to the one thumb yet entertaining gameplay. The hidden areas of the game add to the excitement of a new run. The custom hats and parachutes give you something to work for. The game compatibility makes downloading it on my iPad and iPhone that much easier. The fun addition of the animal friends to help aid you on your quest to run away from the leaning tower of bananas adds to the brilliance. The fact that Banana Kong is free is fantastic, and lastly the original name will help my friends download this app once I have recommended it to them. You have outdone yourself FDG Entertainment and I will be downloading from you again.
It is entertaining for hours! It doesnt lag, it has articulate scenery, and there are hats and powerups to use. I think this is a great game but the treetops area should have more of a world and more interaction. I love the underwater, forest, and underground areas as well. The animal powerups sometimes are not useful, especially with the giraffe. It usually bounces me out of rhythm and I fall out of the treetops. This game needs altering but I'd rate it 4 3/4 since there are a few touch ups needed. I think adding more hats/powerups and adding an outfit feature would be great. It would also be great if there was a girlish monkey. Overall, Banana Kong is my favorite app and I would definetly download it!
