Should I Go Back and Play It? If you can track it down -- Skullmonkeys isn't exactly a low-hanging fruit -- you should absolutely play it. The game's art and music will slap you silly; the potency of Skullmonkey's art direction cannot be understated. In an argument about games being art, Skullmonkeys deserves mention. As an example of the platformer genre, Skullmonkeys follows instead of leading, but to be fair, the footsteps of giants were still filling up with polygonal wannabes. Play it instead as a sum of its parts, appreciating all the great things it accomplishes in the field of artistry, while enjoying one of the last functional remnants of a then-dying genre.
