In Monkey Bay, your goal is to protect your island and strike fear into the hearts of all pirates. You will do this without leaving your island, too. This is not a game about going to sea to destroy the enemies, taking out everyone you come across. No, not at all. It is about protecting what is yours, your island.
It is a tower defense game that has strategic and tycoon elements to it. It is beautifully built and plays exceptionally well on devices. If you want to throw yourself into a dangerous world of pirates and destruction, you have an entire world waiting for you here.
The core of Monkey Bay is, of course, a tower defense games. If you have played tower defense games in the past, you know how they go. You set up your pieces and you let those pieces destroy enemies that come close. Your goal is to destroy all enemies before they have the chance to cause any damage to you.
This task becomes increasingly difficult as the game progresses, obviously, and that is no different here. It is everything that you would imagine in a tower defense title, but it goes a bit more in depth than most other games do.
One way that it goes further than most others is the strategic element of it. Strategies are vital here for you to succeed. This means that you have to place everything just perfectly or else you might lose to the pirates that come by. You also have to make sure that you put in the time, money, and effort to improve the “tower” so that it is stronger. Of course, the tower here is the island, which you will improve as you continue on throughout the game. All of this will affect your strategic thinking.
Now, improving your island is not some simple upgrade system. Monkey Bay has a tycoon element to it, and that is found in the customization portion of the game. You will build all types of structures to have a working, capable island. You will build taverns, jewel mines, training camps, and so much more.

On top of the buildings, you will also hire a crew. This is the crew that will help you to become a better pirate, a better island. As you continue throughout the game, that crew will grow and become far more fearsome than you could imagine.
Part of the tycoon aspect of the game is, obviously, customization. Customizing your island and everything about the game is easy. You can make Monkey Bay yours wholly, turning it into the perfect picture of fun and destruction. The beautiful graphics of the game will bring your customizations to life. You can see everything move fluidly, and you can see it all work together like a well-built machine. This game has great graphics and gameplay, which complement every other aspect of the game. It not only looks good, but is plays incredibly well, too. It is a title everyone should pick up.
