Games for the Weekend is a weekly feature aimed at helping you avoid doing something constructive with your downtime. Each Friday we’ll be recommending a game for Mac, iPhone or iPad that we think is awesome. Here is one cool enough to keep you busy during this weekend.
There are just two basic controls that you need to use in the game Banana Kong. Simply tap to jump up and swipe down to jump down to a lower platform. As you run further and further, you learn how to use these two basic controls to avoid obstacles, jump from vine to vine, and even bounce off the occasional spring flower. Some of the platforms like rickety old bridges will fall out from under you. While others offer you no support at all like long pools of water. Knowing when to run and when to jump is really what the game is all about.
