Once upon a time, there was a magical era known as the mid 2000’s. In this era was a machine called the PlayStation 2, which many video games called home. Under the safe protection of this magical kingdom thrived a species of video games with only one goal, silly, childlike and nonsensical fun. Their heroes were Maximo, Rachet and Clank, Sly Cooper, and a bunch of really annoying monkeys. As technology advanced and war engulfed the various video gaming kingdoms, these heroes disappeared without a trace. The Ape Escape series still lives on, a wrinkled old man to remind us of the glory days of video games, albeit reduced to a bunch of tech demo mini-game collections. This is the retelling of Ape Escape’s last defiant stand against the armies of maturity.
