A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

It's easy to get the ball rolling but difficult to avoid plunging off the ramp into the jungle canopy far below. (Acrophobics beware.) It's so easy to lose perspective the game comes with an optional tilt meter. When the red dot is centered in the small box in the lower corner of the screen, the ball is on a flat surface and it's safe to venture down the ramp again.

Violence & Scariness

No violence, but little ones might be disturbed by the terrified sounds the female monkey character makes when falling.

Sexy Stuff

There's one link on the main menu that launches descriptions of several other Sega apps, including a street fighter game.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this exciting ramp game was originally a Sega arcade game for kids. The only multiplayer option is Wi-fi for safe matchups with people kids know.

Is it any good?

The object of the game is simple: guide a cute monkey encased in a clear plastic ball down a series of high, curvy ramps without falling off the edge. Phenomenal tilt control, satisfying 3D graphics and cool slow-mo instant replays make this game a must-have. Kids can happily spend hours exploring the dozens of ramp courses in five different theme worlds.
