If you're looking for an old-school infused shoot ‘em up on PlayStation 4 at a budget price, then Monkey King: Master of the Clouds is definitely going to scratch that itch. The game is much easier to play with two players on board since they both share a single total lives count and as long as one of the players remains alive, the other can rejoin the fight after a 10 second countdown, which is different from how you take on this one if you're playing on your own.
Monkey King is by far the most barebones retro game port I have seen on the Switch next to D/Generation. Save for handy online leaderboards and the option to increase your lives, there’s little else of importance to speak of, from a locked border, a great (but also locked) display option, no DIP switch or difficulty changes, or really anything extra that could have made this port more worth it such as a gallery or new levels, this is a really disappointing release with quite a bit of balance issues.
