orn from a crashed meteorite is charged with the task of saving his home, Flower Fruit Mountain. Now before you write off Monkey Magic as just another crappy Japanese cartoon-turned game, read on and find out just why this may be one of the best platform games to hit the PlayStation.
Right from the get go, Monkey Magic is all about balance. There is a delicate balance system between the magic, level design, puzzles, control and difficulty.
The magic system centers around four different powers, two pairs that counter each other. For example, the fire magic will set your body ablaze, but the ice magic will cool you off, and vice-versa. The other set of magic will either make you strong or shrink, and the counter will always reverse the effect. It's a system that is deceptively simple, yet can be combined to pass a variety of traps, plus you can opt to use the spells on yourself or another object (yes, even enemies).
