Monkeying around with Chimpact for Windows Phone 8

Looking for a fun game for your Windows Phone 8 device? You may want to give Chimpact a try.

Chimpact is a jumper game of sorts where you have to navigate your chimp up the screen by launching him from hammock to hammock. Graphics are great, game play challenging and Chimpact is a enjoyable way to pass the time.

There are two game modes with Chimpact, Gem Quest and Totem Trail. Gem Quest is a multi-level game where you are tasked with moving your chimp up the screen, collecting gems along the way.

Totem Trail is a multi-level game but more task oriented. For example one level will require you to collect a certain number of bananas in a set time period while another reach the top of the screen without any damage.

Each game mode has four worlds with twelve levels each. All totaled, Chimpact has 240 challenge medallions to earn and eight special abilities for your chimp to unlock.

Game play is simple. Your chimp starts sleeping in the hammock at the bottom of the screen and you have to launch him around the screen until he reaches his home hammock. Just tap/hold on the hammock, drag your finger down (a directional arrow will appear) and release to launch your chimp around the jungle.

There are dangerous to avoid and bonus items to collect for extra points. Some launches require full power, while others require a more delicate touch.

Chimpact is a fun game for your Windows Phone 8 device. There is a free trial version to let you try Chimpact with the full version currently running $2.99.

You can find Chimpact here in the Windows Phone Store.
