Description

Ookibloks combines the spirit of classic action puzzlers with a bright visual style and an ultra-catchy soundtrack. In this game you help Ooki the Monkey collect all his stolen bananas while avoiding enemies like crabs, ghosts, piranhas and the all-powerful Devil Cat.

History

Ookibloks started as the brain-child of Brian Flanagan (Studio Work3). A PC prototype of the game earned a nomination for Excellence in Audio during the 2008 Independent Games Festival. Years later, Studio Work3 teamed with Lampert & Sons to release Ookibloks on iOS. Now, Skyboy Games is happy to bring Ookibloks back home to PC so the game can be played as it was originally meant to be enjoyed.
