Rolling monkeys like marbles around brightly coloured environments might as well have been designed for iPhone's tilt sensor. This sequel fixes one of the original's main problems by giving you a visual diagram of how far you're tilting the phone in the bottom left corner. The result is a much more playable monkey-rolling experience.

Its arcade-style visuals are charming,move smoothlyand feature slick special effects. The minigames return too, including the ever-popular Monkey Bowling and Monkey Target. Don't think the cutesy style means it'll be easy, mind. There are plenty of worlds to keep you busy, andthe difficulty level soon gets very tough. But you do want AiAi to get his bananas, right?

Above: Fall out! Poor AiAi justover-ran that one. No bananas for him today
