Do Not Feed the Monkeys Review

You should avoid feeding the monkeys in their cages, except that monkeys are not monkeys but rather humans under supervision, and food is not food but rather information, yes you should avoid feeding people with information, this is what this miraculous game is based on, and this is what It aroused our curiosity to review it, because you do not see games of this strange and innovation every day, Do Not Feed the Monkeys available in the eShop after it was previously released on the PC, and here we are reviewing the Nintendo Switch version.

Do Not Feed the Monkeys is a really strange game, and while it is classified as a strategy game and as a simulation game due to the resource management elements in it, we think it tends to categorize the classic "point and tap" games, and it seems to us inspired by its main idea at least from Night Trap, which was released on the Sega CD in the 1990s, is based on a similar idea: watching cameras to spy on strangers!

Yes, this is the basic idea of playing. The player will receive an email inviting him to join (The Primate Observation Club), and he will have to achieve the club’s goals by observing a group of cages… Cages are nothing but surveillance cameras distributed in many places, and on the player Observing them in order to extract information about them and discover the truth about what is going on in them ... And the player is not only watching, but he can also do all this with one condition: Do not feed the information to the cages and refrain from contacting them, do you really do this? The choice is up to you, dear player because you can definitely feed the monkeys!

Time management is the essential and decisive element in this game, the player must organize his time between observing cages (or cameras), knowing that scenes or events may differ according to the different day and night cycle, and he must write his notes in a diary or extract information and search for it. Through a search engine inside the game, which allows access to more information about what is really going on in these cages, and at the same time the player has to collect money by working in jobs that consume precious time, in order to pay the rent of the apartment and also to buy food And keep the character from hunger. We wished the game was more generous with the player at the speed of time-lapse!

For this reason, it can be said that it is a strategy game, there are a hunger counter and a counter for how much the player needs to sleep, and they must be preserved, the events of the game take place in real-time, meaning that time does not stop and cannot be stopped, and we believe that time was short and limited. A bit, and if this was intended in our opinion, to create pressure on the player and force him to make difficult decisions at times. Sleep fills the sleep/drowsiness counter and fresh food that can be bought increases the health or energy meter, money is not so much and you need to buy more cages before reaching a specific day in order to continue the game.

Do Not Feed the Monkeys Review

The club or organization will send you a set of questions about the cages that they monitor, and you must answer these questions before the end of the specified time, or of course, contact the owners of these cages, your decisions may lead to serious and unexpected consequences such as destroying the cages! It can even affect the ending as well, as the game includes multiple endings. In any case, you should not expect a genius storyline from the game or from the cages, or a huge amount of texts as it does not provide that, and perhaps this made the experience as a whole tends to the average level in our perspective.

Do Not Feed the Monkeys piqued our interest when we heard about it for the first time thanks to its unique idea, the game is definitely good and you can't really extract many flaws in it, but at the same time we were aspiring for a more genius experience than we got, Do Not Feed the Monkeys is A fun game, spying on others and knowing their secrets and questions posed by the game makes you feel a kind of thrill (only in video games, of course!) With the need for skillful time management, but it also leaves a kind of dissatisfaction on the player when finished, You will find yourself wondering ... is that all? In any case, we believe that the category of fans who will be interested in this game is a category that will pursue the idea of the innovative game and will not pay much attention to evaluation, in the end, Do Not Feed the Monkeys is a game that knows what you want to offer and what kind of experience you want to create.

Do Not Feed the Monkeys

  • There are many ways to deal with cages, the game as a whole, and multiple endings, and the experience encourages repeating them more than once.
  • Designing menus takes time to get used to, time is running out faster than we had hoped, which makes monitoring cages quite uncomfortable.
  • Do Not Feed the Monkeys is a game with a fresh idea and we welcome that in an industry that makes a lot of use of creative content like video games, even if it doesn't live up to a game of genius.
