Monkey Labour
Endless retro gaming fun at its finest!
Mobot the robot is expected to mindlessly labor at his job deep inside the bowels of a corporate production facility while his monkey boss vents frustration by throwing obstacles Mobot's way.

Help Mobot stick it back to the system while avoiding being replaced by a cheaper model in this deliciously retro 80s style electronic handheld game rehash.

"Monkey Labour is all about the image inside the frame. Excellent replayable highly addictive gameplay in an uncompromising retro presentation. I love it, and hope to see more original games such as this."
TouchGen — 4/5

"Monkey Labour can be reviewed in one sentence: This is a sweet LCD-game from the 80' s that acts exactly as you remember these kind of games. It even has a virtual discoloured screen if you press your touch screen. This is hypernostagia for less than a buck. It isn´t gonna keep you up at night, but it will make you smile if you are one of gaming's old boys."
Gamereactor — 6/10
