Monkeynauts: Merge Monkeys!

Uber Cute Monkey Matching Game

VIEW

It’s hard enough parenting a human kid. Imagine having to supervise a bunch of monkeys. Hundreds of them.

Monkeynauts: Merge Monkeys takes that premise and goes wild. In this tap-filled idle game, you’re the commander of a mission control centre, challenged with helping simians grow from newborns to highly intelligent scientists. Eventually, you can cram adult apes into a rocket ship (bananas and all) and launch them into orbit – and beyond.

Want to turn fun into funds? Get these guys to adulthood, stat!

You’ll figure out the gameplay in no time. Every couple of seconds, an incubator appears. Tap it to create a small baby monkey. Drag two of those babies together and they merge, creating an infant monkey. Drag two infants together and they form a teen monkey. And so on.

Additionally, each primate generates a small amount of profit per second. The elder the monkey, the more cash it creates. You can spend this money on upgrades (like faster-spawning incubators) or – when you need a quick match – to instantly spawn a monkey of any age. This accelerated progress helps you reach a moonbase and other stations more quickly.

Unlocking new monkeys feels like an event – both because they earn more dough and because these critters are super cute. Thank the soft pastel cartoon illustrations, which look like something out of a gorgeous children’s book. You’ll wish you could get stuffed-animal versions of characters like Dotcom (a massive ape with a doctorate) and 8-Bit (a golden cyborg monkey).

Monkeynauts is perfect for those short on time, and doesn’t require much expertise to master. Send our simian pals to the stars and get tapping.
