Monkey Racing is a game about racing monkeys. I feel like that's probably enough information for you to make an informed purchasing decision.

The game has just landed in New Zealand, which means it should be out in the UK at midnight tonight.

The game plays a little like a simian Mario Kart. You're driving a souped up buggy around some silly tracks, firing rockets and putting up shields to try and make sure you finish in first.

There are different challenges, extra upgrades, and plenty of modifications to unlock as well. Plus there's monkeys driving carts, which is always funny to watch. Crazy monkeys.

The controls aren't perfect, and there are a few other niggles here as well.

Monkey Racing will set you back £1.99 / $2.99 when it hits the UK later tonight. Maybe keep an eye out for our review before you fork out though.
