This game is very much Wario shake it. Great graphics, lots of "secret" spots to find. If you can't figure it out just use the superguide which is helpful when you have died about 30 times on the finale battles. This is an adventous game acceptable for kids and great for snow days and sick days. It is even good to play with smaller kids because they can play the little monkey and just ride on your back and shot bananas at everything until their little arms tire out. I was even playing from the couch with my cold/flu. Love it.
