Banana Kong is an endless runner mobile game developed by FDG Entertainment GmbH & Co.KG. In this adventure, you become Kong, a gorilla who is fleeing a giant banana tsunami. In order to avoid being buried by this huge wave of bananas, Kong must run as fast as he can while dodging all kinds of obstacles and barriers (a crashed plane, for example). Some obstacles will slow you down (spider webs, barrels etc...), while others will stop you in your tracks, so ending the game.
Kong must run as fast as he can while dodging all kinds of obstacles and barriers
However, there are not only obstacles and difficulties; you can also count on several friends to help you in your race. You get the chance to ride animals such as Toucans and Boars. The Toucan flies and takes you over the water or other obstacles, which is ideal when you have to avoid piranhas. The Boar smashes through everything as it runs, the Giraffe prevents you from falling from the treetops, and the Turtle leads you through water stages.
The gameplay of Banana Kong is pretty simple since you only need one finger to perform all movements. To jump just tap on the screen, to glide with your parachute you have to tap and hold. If you are in an up platform and you want to drop down to a lower one, perform a downwards swiping movement. In addition and while running, you can collect bananas. While being the currency of the game, they will also help to fill your power meter, and once that is filled, you can perform the Power Dash. With this movement, you will be able to smash obstacles, get ahead of the avalanche or enter into bonus stages, such as water levels or lava levels.
With the bananas you collect, you can buy upgrades, objects, parachutes and even hats. This way you can customize you Kong, and also make your adventure easier each time. You can buy a magnet to attract bananas, a multicolored banana which is worth 30 bananas or upgrades for the glide ability. The game also offers you some missions to accomplish that provide you with extra bananas if you complete them successfully, these include "Collect 100 bananas", "Reach 500 meters" or "Swing on 5 vines in a row".
Levels are randomly generated, so this way you will never play the same level twice. The disposal of the obstacles, secret stages, bananas or menaces is different every time you play Banana Kong. The speed of Kong also increases as you continue running, so avoiding obstacles becomes more difficult as you don't smash in to a barrier.
