Do not Feed the Monkeys is a very fun and fresh game, where you never know what will happen next or where the shots may go. The management part can perhaps be frustrating and weigh down the real attraction of the game which is the camera surveillance, but it is certainly necessary for the development. Its strong adult theme and black humour catches you and doesn't let go until the game is over. A little gem of a homeland.

Do Not Feed The Monkeys, even on Nintendo Switch, is certainly something to try and enjoy. The title is an atypical adventure game, able to graft into the innermost part of the human brain and play with our unconscious much better than the competition. The title is replayable, with some problems due to the control system and with some situations (such as the endgame) that could be better managed by distorting a little 'essence. Our advice is to take and play it because it is difficult to regret the adventure you are preparing to live. Remember to cover with scotch the cameras you have at home, rather.

A truly original game that fans of graphic adventures, investigation and social discourse will love. Watch out: like watching the "cages", once you start playing it's difficult to sop.

Revealing itself through multiple playthroughs, Do Not Feed the Monkeys gets wilder every time, and has a ridiculous number of outcomes waiting to be discovered. Expect to spend hours glued to the screen, as you're driven by a compulsion to see these stories through to their many hilarious or devastating conclusions.

I certainly felt that once I got my head fully and completely bamboozled by the intricacies of Do Not Feed The Monkeys, it was over. Fortunately the game is replayable to the nth degree due to its central mechanic of playing the game particularly how you want to, no matter how stressful each playthrough was always going to be.

Do Not Feed The Monkeys surprised me. Whether it’s down to the unexpected depth, variety, or killer tone, I found myself engrossed through my descent into its dingy underworld. If you want a razor-sharp simulation that poses plenty of questions on morality, Do Not Feed The Monkeys will not monkey around with your time.

Some games are revolutionary, some are evolutionary, and some are just good at doing their own thing. Do Not Feed the Monkeys falls into the latter category and manages to take 'unique' in a positive direction by melding a puzzle game with resource management within a fascinating premise.
