[prMac.com] Colorado Springs, Colorado - Metal Sole Studio, the newest independent game studio on the block, today is thrilled to announce the release and immediate availability of "Joe Monkey Escapes" for the iPad. A Platform-Puzzler, Joe Monkey Escapes uses a platform-based world to tell the story of Joe Monkey and his friends held captive by the evil Dr. Serious Lee. Dr. Lee has recently invented a new planet-melting device and needs Joe's help to get the device working. (Okay, he actually bought it online).
Players use Joe and his friends to solve over 50 levels of puzzles. Nothing is out-of-bounds: monkeys stand on one another, fly around the level, fall and jump to their deaths, use parachutes, spring-shoes, Magna-Helmets, elevators, and most impressive of all: JoeBot Pants. Joe and his friends must cooperate to solve the ever-more-difficult puzzles on their way to the exit, and escape.
Breaking from the standard platform mold, Joe Monkey Escapes is also a full "talkie" - voice acted throughout. Follow the characters as they claw over one another to get out of the lab and, perhaps, save the planet.
* Over 50 Levels
* Entirely voice-acted storyline
* Over 25 silly achievements
* Compatible with iPad
* Requires iOS 4.0 or later
* 37.3 MB
Pricing and Availability:
Joe Monkey Escapes 1.0 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category.
Joe Monkey was conceived, designed, drawn, acted, and programmed by one person and after a year of being locked in the basement he is ready to tell his story. Matt Maher has been a developer and architect of enterprise systems for 20 years for fortune 25 companies. Imagining himself to truly be an artist with a flair for humor, he finally decided to scratch that itch with Joe Monkey's help. Of course, this scratching took over a year and lots of bananas. With no background in art nor game development, Matt took on the challenge of self-education and discovery. After 3 months of intensive sketching on his iPad, Joe and his band of friends were ready to start monkeying around with one another. Joe Monkey Escapes is simply their playground.
