Monkey Quest was an MMO game geared towards children's multi-player gameplay. It was developed by the Nickelodeon Virtual Worlds Group, and was launched in March 17, 2011. It was also showcased GDC in 2011 as well. Unfortunately, however, the game shut down on September, 26, 2014. Its sequel, Monkey Quest Thunderbow, was also removed from the App Store on July 31, 2014.
Why It Rocked
Very interesting plot.
The enemies are very threatening, especially the ones in the arenas and the bosses.
It's free to play.
It shares many similarities with other games, such as Club Penguin, Wizard 101, and Pirate 101.
It spawned an amazing sequel, called Monkey Quest Thunderbow.
The quests are very enjoyable and entertaining.
It has very powerful and effective weapons.
It has very powerful clothing and armor.
The Warrior/Monkey Games felt very entertaining.
The final trail, Magma Citadel, was simply AMAZING!!!!!
Much like Club Penguin, you have to buy membership in order to continue the game.
Nickelodeon's explanation to why the game shut down was very poor.
The chat filter switches on and off, which is very annoying.
The higher-leveled monkeys (lvls 45-65) swear a lot for some reason.
It's far too easy to level up, unlike other MMO games, such as Pirate 101.
The moderators barely do anything to prevent bullying most of the time, which means that it's almost impossible to get banned.
It became very bland during the late-2013 update, which also caused the game to shut down.
It caused Neopets and Petpet Park to lose a lot of popularity, due to being a more successful game (Petpet Park also got shut down, because of the said reason).
