Storyline

Having been blown into outer space by Klaymen and Hoborg, the villianous Klogg lands upon a mysterious planet called Idznak. This planet is inhabited by an odd race of creatures known as the Skullmonkeys-monkeys with skulls on their heads-nice and direct. Klogg wastes no time in tricking the Skullmonkeys into being his underlings and enlisting their help in building Evil Engine Number Nine to destroy the Neverhood forever! Thankfully, though, the intelligent Skullmonkey Jerrio resists Klogg and sends a desperate plea for help to the Neverhood. This plea is intercepted by our hero, Klaymen, who quickly blasts off to Idznak to defeat Klogg and the Skullmonkeys, blow up Evil Engine Number Nine, and save the Neverhood from utter destruction!

Another prime rib lost in the sea
26 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those games that makes me extremely sad. Not because it was bad, but because it was just so good, yet not a whole lot of people have heard of it and those lot of people just don't care. It makes me sad.

It's been a long time since I've played this game (due to lack of actually HAVING it), but from what I could remember, it was just a blast to play. Jumping on monkeys and collecting items just never got old.

The music is one of those rare moments in gaming where you think that everyone, gamer or non gamer, should have it. Quirky and up-beat, it was very memorable and, once I get some money, I am, without a doubt, going to get the soundtrack.

The Neverhood has disbanded, but this game will live on in the hearts of gamers who played it.
