Description: In Ape Hit, players will step into virtual reality and take on the role of a newly hired Wrecking Ball Crane Operator. Demolition hungry players will be able to smash their way around 5 virtual job sites with each map packed full of wacky power-ups and destructible buildings. Take care to avoid any buildings outside of the job’s scope or your boss, an angry ape, will be furious!
Players will utilize 3 levers in an attempt to demolish multiple structures within each level. As players earn cold hard cash for the company power-ups will spawn including the highly coveted, giant Megaball! Once satisfied with the destruction, players can end their shift and move forward to the next work site. Should things go poorly on site there is always the PANIC! button…
Review: I’m not sure why it is called ‘Ape Hit’ but this is a wrecking ball simulator and you get to trash everything you can reach in one of 6 levels. Its simple, clean fun and while it does take a little getting used to it is part of the fun learning what each of the control knobs do. It’s not going to win any game design awards but for just £2.89 you get a good laugh and some destructive fun. If knocking down the Jenja tower is more fun to you than building it this is the game for you.
