I wish I can take a part time job or something to fund my monkey project, while I wait for my monkey to generate money

the only negative thing i can say about the game is that for some reason, (this is nobody's fault but simply some glitch that happens in most games i play when i'm on mobile) when i click outside of the game box i can no longer interact with the game but it does go on without my interaction.


Well....I've complete it today as well, took me maybe an hour or two?




i was expecting a little more fanfare for finishing the game… :(

What about making the game wider with more rows of monkeys to be bought, same with the posters and trees updates. and put the entire book or just chapter 2 as an update.

That would be cool

Love this so far! 0.4328% of the way through and going strong. Great idea!

to be honest make another game using monkeys as lumberjacks because the speed of their arms is really fast

Hmmm

I wonder how many people actually beat the game ...?

Well now there is one more :-)

It's technically possible to get every letter on the first try.

That depends on how the random number generator works. Generally there's a relatively small number of seeds you can start with, and if there's nothing the game uses rng for besides the numbers the monkeys pick it will always pick the same series of letters from the same seed, so regardless of what seed it picks it won't be able to get all the letters on the first try.

(1 edit)

theoretically, yes, assuming the character order isn't predetermined. if it is not predetermined, each character has a 1/36 (2.778%) chance of being the correct one. then the next character has a 1/36 chance. and so on. so the odds of getting every single letter on the first try would be 1 in some trillions or something. i don't feel like counting how many letters spaces and symbols are in act 1 scene 1 of king lear. if it is predetermined, i have no freaking clue what the odds would be.

The more you upgrade, the more satisfiying it becomes!

Great, fun and original for an idle game!

Hm. Feel like I may have missed a point somewhere along the line.

This is perfect.

That's a remarkably thorough writeup for a game where you buy motivational posters for monkeys.  (No one ever talks about the infinite zookeepers!)

I can think of things you could add to the game.  For instance, I went away to take out the garbage, and when I came back, I had missed several words!  So perhaps a button where you can review the script as they have it so far.  Or: I wonder what would happen if, each time a monkey gets a letter right, they have a slightly better chance of getting that letter the next time it comes around--not an overall improvement, just a stimulus/reward so that now they know what's expected when they see an "A".

But those would be additions.  I can't think of any way to improve this game, because it's a game about monkeys typing Shakespeare letter by letter, which makes it perfect as it is.

...The game gets stuck once it hits the square brackets.

Fixed! Thanks for the heads-up, I forgot to check for some punctuation. Sorry about the trouble!

Thanks! It works now :)
