Push Square: "Baboon! makes a poor first impression, but it's far more impressive than it initially seems. The core concept of platforming with the aid of bombs is frequently revised with enhancements and new challenges, and it's a delight to see what new feature is next on the list. However, its extreme difficulty will put people off, so many will miss what makes the game special. This is a clever and likeable release, then – but one that you'll need to work at to etch out its underlying enjoyment."
