Released around the same time as the remake (2001 Tim Burton) of the original film (1968 Franklin J. Schaffner), yet follows its own story in that setting. You are Ulysses, a human whose spacecraft crashed on an ape-ruled planet. When you are captured and readied for 'examination' you want to save your skin, and thankfully a merciful ape gives you a chance to do so. As a human you have no tools, only your intelligence and some loincloth to prevent staring eyes. The game is played from a third-person viewpoint, and you can meet certain characters and talk to them to get information. Hand-to-hand combat ensues when you encounter an unfriendly ape, obstacles need to be overcome by thinking and some acrobatics.


Planet of the Apes Windows You don't auto heal between levels and the gorillas are really strong. About landed hits and it's game over. You re-start at the beginning of the level with no option to save between levels.
