Space Chimps is a platforming video game based on the film of the same name. It was published by Brash Entertainment and was officially released on the PlayStation 2, Wii, Nintendo DS, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows in the summer of 2008.[3]

Plot[edit]

Similar to the film, Ham III, grandson of the first chimpanzee in space, teams up with fellow spacemates Luna and Titan on a space adventure to an unknown planet.

Gameplay[edit]

The player plays two characters, Ham and Luna, defeating enemies in order to defeat Zartog and save their friend, collecting the gumdrop shaped objects called Globtrotters as well as bananas along the way.

Collecting enough Globtrotters and bananas unlocks rewards such as character concepts, artwork, videos as well as a deleted scene from the movie in which the director of the film Kirk DeMicco plays with actual monkeys.[4]

Reception[edit]

The game received “mixed or average reviews” on all platforms except the version for the PlayStation 2 which received “generally unfavourable reviews” according to the review aggregation website Metacritic.[5][6][7][8][9]
