NE: "I’ll be completely honest: I didn’t expect to like Puzzle Monkeys. I expected it to be a cheap cash grab, just another in a long line of copies of an overdone style of gameplay. I expected the low production values to lead to a painfully bland and cartoonish visual style and painful music. I expected it to just not be very good. While some of that is pretty true, some of it isn’t. In the end it’s a surprisingly good game, offering just enough quality and options to make it something worth considering."
