I am back with another CPU highlight, where I’ll be taking it retro with a game that came free with every IBM computer. It is a very simple, fun, and challenging game where you are a gorilla – hence the name – and you are hurling an explosive banana at another gorilla. The MS DOS 5.0 was released back in 1990 so you can imagine the quality of PC game this could have been.
The controls are actually very simple: when your turn begins you must put in the angle at which you want to throw the banana, followed by the velocity you’d like it to travel at. If that’s not challenging enough for you though, there’s also an option at the beginning of the game to adjust the gravity settings and increase its difficulty.
Unfortunately, without a doxbox you cannot access the original game, but people have graciously recreated this game online, where you can try it absolutely free. Click this link to play it now!
Let me know how you like it. Maybe it could be a game to put into the arcade – you never know!
