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!

A sequel for The Neverhood?
29 July 2002 | by smashattackSee all my reviews

How is this possible? The Neverhood was a great game. Puzzles, action, mystery, "Klay", and funny characters. Everything anyone could ever want in a game.

Now the sequel has led The Neverhood in a very strange turn. Skullmonkeys is a platform/action game designed for PlayStation. Klaymen can now run, jump, shoot, clone, use magic, and butt-bounce. He is a lot more versatile.

If we just ignore the fact that The Neverhood series was completely turned around, Skullmonkeys is a decent game. It's got action, some very easy to solve puzzles (like all platforms), Klay-gore, and more funny characters. With the loss of Willie Trombone, though, since the game's setting is the strange world of Idznak, something just feels completely missing. He was a great character, still is, and now he's gone.

At this time, I have not fully beaten the game. One must collect all the "Swirly Q's" in each world to see the real ending. I'm working on it now, and it isn't too hard.

So if you're looking for lots of entertainment and a challenge, don't come to Skullmonkeys. If you're looking for the sequel to The Neverhood and a nice little platform game, however, search out Skullmonkeys.
