Some choices fine for younger kids; others include gore.

Positive messages

Several of the games feature a significant amount of blood and gore, and one category is devoted to fighting games.


One section contains "fighting games," and several of the action games are violent -- one encourages the player to kill bat-wielding convicts in a game show-type setting (and promises more weapons if the audience gets to see a lot of blood).

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that many of the games on are fine for younger kids, and the site doesn't feature a lot of swearing or sexual innuendo. However, the games that are violent are pretty graphic -- and involve a significant amount of blood.

What's it about?

The wide array of games range from easy to complex, and from cute and kid-friendly (herding sheep to their pens, an Easter egg hunt, a ladybug race) to somewhat disturbing or twisted (war games, assassin role-playing, zombie executions, a kitty trouncing and mangling mice). Players can rate the games, and the average rating is shown for each game.

Is it any good?


CRAZY MONKEY GAMES was designed to provide "a fun, friendly, and entertaining website for everyone to enjoy" -- and, as promised, many of the games will appeal to both young and older users. However, a fair amount of the action games feature some serious violence; characters wield guns, swords, and other weapons as their opponents collapse in a bloody mess. In some games, violence isn't just an option; it's encouraged in instructions that tell the player to fiercely fight and assassinate other players.

As a result, the site really isn't a great game destination for younger kids. In general, parents may want to watch how much time their child spends on Although some games are perfectly fine for kids of all ages, with dozens to choose from, the site can easily suck away a significant amount of time.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about how game sites often include a mix of games for younger kids and ones that are meant for an older audience. How can you tell if a site's games are OK for kids your age?

  • Some of the games on this site are pretty violent. If you play a game that involves beating someone up (and blood splattering everywhere), does that make you think differently about fighting?

  • It's easy to spend a lot of time on game sites. Help your family set limits on the amount of time spent online.

Overwhelming Site

CrazyMonkeyGames is the big thing among the 4th graders at my son's school. But I am not convinced. Some of the games appear harmless, but there are some pretty graphically violent games and there is no way to tell which is which. The games aren't grouped according to age or rating and there are so many of them, it's hard to know what your child is doing. I would rather my child play his Wii or use computer software than freely cruise this website. There's time for that when he's older.

little innapropriate but fun if used correctly

I think crazy monkey games has some games that r violent some that has innapropriate language but if u can be mature and steer away from that it is a pretty fun sight
What other families should know
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing

Not a lot to say here. They have some alright games, but the best is Pandemic 2. I don't like the Bingo Cafe link that looks dodgey.
