Take to the skies to defeat the terrible humans and protect the forest with your band of rogue apes. That's right these apes are not your average primates, these are intelligent and vengeful apes who shall use their zeppelin to take down all in their path. APESTORM: Full Bananas will take not only great flying skills but a good sense of physics as you will have to aim carefully to destroy only that which needs to be destroyed. This is a challenging game, however, it does have some of its drawbacks.
So lets start off the biggest thing in the game and that is Bananas, that's right folks, it is in the title and you're going to have to complete objectives that will give you bananas at the end of each stage. The thing is that you can potentially get through a level successfully and not gain a single banana, which to me seems odd, wouldn't you think that by surviving a level, which is challenging in some cases should warrant at least a completion banana?
The objectives range from not bombing the forest, blowing up all the buildings, blowing up the outhouse, destroying watch towers, and so on. The interesting, or challenging thing is that as you progress through the levels the difficulty ramps up and you start to unlock more power ups, but these power ups actually are more of a hindrance more times than they help. The reason is that there's usually something in the level that will cause a penalty to incur upon hitting something that you're not supposed to hit, and that chance multiplies exponentially when you use most of the power ups.
As it stands this game has 20 levels to sink your teeth into, and if you are looking for a challenge, and a game that you're going to have to play levels many times over to achieve specific objects, then this is a game you're going to want to get. I do love the fact that you can focus on one objective, complete the level, and then restart it again with already having credit for completing the previously completed objectives. If you had to complete everything in one run I'm pretty sure that many a mobile device would be thrown against hard objects and lose their lives in the act.
Graphically, this game looks good, and surprisingly the controls actually feel good. My issue with mobile games of this variety usually stems from the fact that my fingers take up almost the entire screen, but for some reason, even though you have to interact a good amount with the screen to speed up, slow down, rise, fall, and shoot, I never had that big of an issue with playing the game, from that standpoint.
Here's the deal, at the end of the day I think that this game has its entertaining aspects to it, but it also has some game mechanic issues that just don't seem to completely fit just right. There's also the fact that to this day I still can cause the game to, basically, on any level, make everything from that level disappear and not show up, which of course means that I can't actually complete any of the objectives for that level. This game ends up getting a 6.9 out of 10.
