Gaming just got a whole lot better with Chimpact for BlackBerry PlayBook!

If you own a BlackBerry PlayBook or are thinking of getting one, this video must be seen. Chimpact arrived in BlackBerry App World over the weekend and in my opinion it is one of those games that may well achieve the status of being a 'must have game' for your tablet.

The graphics are beautiful, the gameplay is smooth and the developer has clearly spent a very long time creating the application. He deserves a pat on the back!

The aim of Chimpact is to control one of three monkeys who you must guide through the jungle canopy collecting gems, bananas and medallions. Sounds simple - well it isn't. Using a catapult style style control there are many obstacles you will come across to make things a little more tasking. With three separate games - Gem Quest, Totem Trial and Quick Play there are hours of fun to be had. Chimpact isn't one of those games where you pick it up for a quick few minutes of gameplay. This one suckers you in and keeps you playing.

Features of the game include:

  • Simple, one-touch gameplay
  • Three stunningly lush worlds with 12 levels each
  • Two complete game modes to beat: Gem Quest and Totem Trail
  • Three chimps to unlock
  • Over 150 challenge medallions to earn

Priced at £3.00/$2.99 Chimpact is possibly the best money I have spent on a PlayBook game in quite a while.

just got the game for my kid. he said he loves it. simple to play and the monkeys are cute and fun. Just need more levels to keep him busy.

There's something very, very wrong with their exchange rate, there.

In fact, this appears to be a common problem. One of my main reasons for *not* buying a given app is when the cost in GBP is the same or more than the cost in USD.

Sure would like to see a decent golf game (EA) for us old guys with 64gb of PB sitting here doing not much. Power to the future of children and RIM.
