Review: Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania – A Love Letter With A Few Misfires

AiAi and his friends are back!

Can you believe the Super Monkey Ball series is 20 years old? We can’t either, but 2021 is the year of the monkey and SEGA is celebrating its iconic hero AiAi and friends with Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania, a completely remastered collection of three fan-favourite titles in the franchise. Whether you’re a series veteran or a newcomer, the latest instalment aims to compact 20 years of bouncing, tilting history into one package. While it occasionally feels stuck in the past, Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania is mostly a love letter to the cult classic.

If you’ve never played Super Monkey Ball before then fear not. The simple premise is easy to grasp, but challenging to master. All you have to do is tilt the maps in such a way that your loveable monkey rolls to the goal, collecting bananas along the way. While it initially seems to be an extremely basic premise, it’s not long before you’re engaging in a series of challenging gauntlets that will have you tearing your hair out. Packing in Super Monkey Ball, Super Monkey Ball 2 and Super Monkey Ball Deluxe, there are over 300 stages to test your mantle on, each with unique challenges such as collecting a certain amount of bananas or finding a secret exit.
