‘Bonkies’ Releasing This Summer

  • Releasing on all current major platforms.
  • A demo is available on Steam.
  • Up to four players can enjoy physics-based construction puzzles.


Developer Studio Gauntlet and publisher Crunching Koalas have announced that their indie casual physics-based puzzle co-op title Bonkies will release sometime this summer on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. Up to four players can enjoy a couch co-op construction builder, as they take on the roles of space-engineered monkeys. Their goal is to colonize the planets orbiting our solar system. This is a wacky title where challenge is balanced with joy and humor, allowing for families to enjoy mindless fun. If you’d like to give the title a try before purchasing, there is a demo available on Steam.

Bonkies will have you take control of highly trained monkeys that are equipped with powerful bionic arms and jetpacks. You’ll go through a bunch of wacky construction sites that are spread across many different planets in the solar system. These adorable apes will have to work together to stack blocks to fit the outline in time. The developers have described the title similarly to another co-op indie darling, Snipperclips. In order to do so, players will need to utilize special blocks and get the job done on alien worlds, which can sometimes be hostile. These challenges are physics-based and can be tackled either solo, or with up to three other players.

There are campaigns for both single and multiplayer, and they each provide players with handcrafted levels that will require quick decision making. Agility, coordination, and planning are also crucial in order to solve these challenges in time. Aside from the lovable cast of monkeys, there are other creatures that can be selected. The developers have looked to balance the challenging experience with lighthearted and joyful themes. This is a co-op construction title that everyone can enjoy, regardless of age. Other features are as follows:

  • Raise and accidentally topple stacked blocks with physics-based mechanics.
  • Have fun with up to three friends or by yourself in single and multiplayer campaigns.
  • Travel to the far reaches of the solar system and visit planets like Mars and celestial dwarfs such as Pluto.
  • Tease your brain with tons of cleverly designed challenges.
  • Make good use of a multitude of special blocks.
  • Guide monkey astronauts with state-of-the-art equipment.
