Games time monkeys

Time Monkeys now available as an Apple TV exclusive

Andrew Graham—developer of the Micro Machines games for iOS—is giving Apple TV owners something we’d like to see a bit more often: an Apple TV exclusive game.

The new game is Time Monkeys, a 3D action adventure that was in development for three years before being released by publisher Kwalee in May of 2016.

Time Monkeys features an innovative time rewind gameplay mechanic that enables players to build up an army of gun-wielding ghost monkeys. Players must learn to master this mechanic (along with 25 heavy duty weapons) across 36 levels of gameplay in order to beat the huge variety of enemies and bosses. A mixture of combat, stealth and puzzle gameplay, Time Monkeys provides arcade shooter action tailored for Apple TV.

“For a long time we hoped that Apple would bring out a device which is capable of playing high quality, console games on TV,” said David Darling, Kwalee CEO. “Once the latest generation Apple TV with its App Store was announced we knew we had the perfect game for it.”

Of course, even with monkeys, time travel wouldn’t be much fun without some destruction and chaotic combat. Time Monkeys aims to offer up plenty of that through a variety of light and heavy weapons, along with some puzzle solving for a sense of adventure.

Time Monkeys is free to download and play exclusively for Apple TV, and supports both the Siri Remote and MFi gamepads.
