    All style, no substance. This would have been the 3rd coolest Flash game in 2005... maybe. There is no variety- you see about 80% of what this game has to offer in the first hour, about the same time the "oooh it looks and sounds neato" factor wears off.

    Skip this one until it's under $7.

    Meh. It's very flawed. All levels feel exactly like the first level and no new elements are introduced. It's supposed to be a Hotline Miami clone but it fails at being fun and exciting like HM. Often induces game rage and it's one of the signs of a poor game design.

    Aesthetic and music is great though.

    The perfect marriage, of jazz, visual arts and bananas. A peculiar style that creates a unique experience.

    The choppy, classical animation adds to the frantic nature of escape, where all your impacts are procedurally matched with a satisfying array of smashing cymbals. Creating an experience that feels improvised yet always in rhythm. Would sincerely recommend to those who are

    Simple, but fun gameplay with a hook that will keep you coming back long after the main campaign has been beaten!

    Ape Out is a wildly intense and colorfully stylized smash ‘em up about primal escape, rhythmic violence, and frenetic jazz.

    Great game. Intriguing artistic style. Simple yet exciting gameplay. Levels become increasingly challenging but you can always overcome them.

    Ape Out is grueling. Constantly, all in movement and speed, the game will make you live something very satisfying. It is like a little walk before turning into a jam-session that will seem very messy from a distance, for the uninitiated. You'll enjoy replaying it, in the manner of a single good vinyl.

    Orthodox yet sophisticated action, a wacky art style, a crazy score and events that make great use of these characteristics make Ape Out a thrilling experience throughout.

    Ape Out is an incredible action game that succeeds in delivering a fresh and genuinely fun experience, wrapped in an aesthetic package so tight and well executed that makes it a game that everybody into videogames should try.
