Can be improved

I have this game on my watch, and absolutely loved it. But when the new update came out, now instead of 3D Touch, you have to press down for a couple of seconds. The only issue is if you hold for to long to make the character jump higher, it activates the pause menu and gets frustrating sometimes.

Edit: Now that this has been fixed, I plan on playing a lot more.

Hi. Thanks for your feedback. The latest version (v1.2.19) of Dare the Monkey now lets you turn the watch's Digital Crown to jump.

Dare the monkey

I think this is a very nice game, especially for the Apple Watch, but the one thing that could be improved is to make double jump level 8 a little easier. Also, sometimes i will tap 2 times to make 2 jumps, but for some reason i will die on the first jump, then shoot up dead on the second one. Last thing: I wish you could use the currency in game to buy carecters or checkpoint restarts or to unlock a level, because I have 46,500 coins built up and i can’t do anything with them. Overall I would recommend this game as it is very fun and challenging.

The new update killed this game.

This game was the only fun and playable game on the Apple Watch. Although in the past we used to tap on the screen to jump and sometimes when pressing the screen to long and menu would therefore pop up, which can be disturbing but I think you get a hang of it and therefore the game was playable and I was able to reach a score of 202 on my watch.

With the new DIGITAL CROWN FEATURE, it is therefore even more difficult to maneuver and I’ve noticed that if you role down the crown you can jump even higher than ever before which therefore kills you if you are not careful.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE a new Update were you can change how you want to make the monkey jump on the Apple Watch, either TAPPING THE SCREEN or TURNING THE DIGITAL CROWN.

Hi. Thanks for the suggestion. We have now released v1.2.19 of Dare the Monkey, which allows you to use either the watch's Digital Crown or touch the screen to jump. Enjoy!
