Space Chimps is a hilarious new action adventure-comedy film that follows the exploits of mischievous young circus chimp, Ham who happens to be the grandson of the first primate ever sent into space! As a publicity stunt, Ham is chosen to lead an exploratory mission into outer space to investigate a mysterious new planet. But when he and his crew crash-land in a bizarre and beautiful new world and find their lives in peril at the hands of the tyrannical King Zartog, Ham must step up to his dangerous mission to save his fellow space chimps, Titan and Luna, and lead the emancipation of the imprisoned aliens and the planet.
In the game, players can take part in this galactic adventure first hand by tumbling, jumping, climbing and swinging their way through environments taken straight out of the film, as well as explore some unique and unseen planet locations. They can switch between fighting and puzzle solving mode as they travel from level to level playing as Ham and Luna on a harrowing mission through a dangerous inter-universal wormhole. Across 11 levels, battle in two-player co-op style and interact with brand new characters as well as familiar faces from the film and encounter 13 entirely new enemies. The Nintendo DS version even offers entirely exclusive gameplay with 3D side-scrolling action and two-player multiplayer.
