Monkey See Monkey Chew is Out!
Took a bit longer than I expected, but the update was released today. As stated a few times already, this one features monkeys that are up to no good. Check out Dave's State of the Island for details on this update!
And thanks for everyone Tweeting and Facebooking (Fbooking? Fooking? Faking?) the Update Song Video...its racked up over 16,000 views so far and we're hoping to rack up more now that the update is out! Please help us push it more if you haven't Tweeted, commented or favorited. Dave's crazy idea of having a song written about our app is just another one of our attention-getting schemes to be the first at something (first episodic app, first comic book, first song, etc.) and see who follows suit :)
One of the favorite comments for the song is "why were they working on this video instead of the update?"....But guys, the video is just footage OF the update, particularly the dance pack too, since the song is included with guitar-playing pygmies! So there!
I made some screen shots, but this is the most difficult update to screen shot. The monkeys are unpredictable, its like taking a picture of a hyperactive child!
Plucking bananas from the banana tree attracts the monkeys. You can get up to 3 monkeys.
Monkeys like to ride the backs of the pygmy, but it always ends badly.
Drop a pygmy on a monkey and if there is another monkey on the island, they play catch. Then you can drop other pygmies into the game and see how many they can juggle!
The Dance Pack Too also includes the tasteful fart dance with lots of fun sound effects.
Lastly, we've done some menu rearranging. Here is the key:
Map - changes location
Island Menu - allows you to enable and disable island-specific features
Global Menu - allows you to enable and disable global features
God Power Menu - allows you to enable and disable god powers
Custom Menu - Gives you access and altar customizable elements, including the Custom Store, the Tribe Stat screen, Story Mode
Community Menu - Gives you access to community features such as Open Feint Achievements and Challenges
Settings Menu - here you can mute sounds, turn on and off gravity, turn on and off name lables, etc.
Hopefully this is cleaner than it was. There is a bit of debate if some features fit on the global menu and god power menu, but hopefully this makes it easier!
