Monkey Quest is an MMO geared toward children’s multi-player gameplay. It is set in the spectacular World of Ook, a land where monkeys rule! You play a heroic monkey who battles the evil Shadow Demon, Ka, and his monster horde! Swing, bounce, and battle your way through adventures beyond imagination while you uncover dark secrets and unearth precious treasures from the legendary Monkey King.
The player’s monkey enters the land of Ook. The player is then able to travel around and meet new inhabitants of the virtual world. The player needs to complete multiple quests along the way. He/she can meet friends, buy new objects, or visit the Mayor Bumbee. As the user plays, his/her monkey unlocks more lands, discovers more about the legendary Monkey King, and can become a tribal leader.
In the game, to explore the worlds of Ook, players use the arrow keys on their keyboard. Jumping is controlled by pressing the space bar and the arrow keys in the direction they wish to go. Pressing the space bar then down while in midair makes them do a divebomb like attack. Also pressing control (CTRL) or x next to characters will allow the player to access new quests and learn new information about Ook and its residents. The game has five equippable hot keys (C,V,B,N,M) to control weapons, potions, pets and any other items players wish to access quickly.
There are two types of currency in Monkey Quest. The main type of currency is bananas, which are commonly earned from quests and can be used at a vendor to buy items, whilst the other currency, NC (Nick Cash) can to be bought with real money or can be earned by levelling up and can be used to buy items from the NC mall which is located at the bottom right corner of the screen in Monkey Quest.
