monkeys on banana

Four cheeky chimps are out of control and ready to party. They’re battling across five wacky worlds in a series of crazy challenges, all in the hope of becoming the Ultimate Chimpion.

We’ve put together a little guide, to help your chimp get the edge over the competition.

Before we get the party started you’ll need to download the free Chimparty™ companion app.

Using the app is easy. Follow the step-by-step instructions on your smart device and you can’t go wrong – just make sure your smart device is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your PlayStation®4.

1) Download the app from the Apple App Store®, Google Play Store or Amazon App Store on your phone or tablet.
2) Install the app and launch it on your phone or tablet.
3) Turn on your PlayStation®4 and start the game.
4) Tap “Play” to connect to your PS4™.

TIP: If your Wi-Fi signal isn’t very good, you can use your PS4™ as a Wi-Fi hotspot instead. But remember – when you’re connected to your PS4™ Wi-Fi hotspot, you won’t be able to download the free Chimparty™ app, so you’ll need to have done that first.

Chimparty features four different game types – so whether you want a short simian session or a full-on monkey marathon, you can find the right mode for the moment.

Start a game

Board Game

The main event. The top banana. The ultimate ape experience.

Two-to-four chimp challengers can take part in this board game battle. The aim of the game is to get to the end of the board before your opponents and claim the Chimpionship Trophy.

You earn stars by competing in mini-games, with each star earned moving you forward one space on the board.

There are two types of spaces you can land on:

  • Regular Spaces. These feature an icon representing a specific game.
  • Spring Spaces. These launch you forward (if you’re lucky) or backwards (if you’re not so lucky).

The chimp in last place will get an extra chance to catch up with their rivals by rolling a die – the space they land on will also determine what kind of party game the group will play next.

Solo Challenge

Can you beat Bob?

You’re taking on one crazy orangutan in this single-player showdown. Win your mini-games and you’ll move towards the Chimpionship Trophy, but mess up and Bob the Orangutan gets closer and closer.

Lose too many and it’s a faceful of cake, courtesy of Big Bob. You can choose from three different difficulty levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold.

Random Mode

Time to mix things up a bit!

This is the perfect mode for a quick blast of fun.

There’s no board, no tutorials and no loading screens. Just up to four players battling it out over 10 randomly selected party games.

Whoever has the most stars at the end wins.

Custom Game

It’s the law of the jungle!

Choose what games you’re playing and how many times you need to play. Up to four players can get involved – whoever has the most stars at the end takes the prize.

Our chimps love to have fun but they’re also super competitive.

Here’s a selection of some of their favourite party games.

Pineapple Grapple

What to do:
Battle for possession of the delicious pineapple. You gain points as long as you’re holding it.

The chimps will run back and forth automatically, changing direction when they hit a wall or bump into each other. Press the button to jump and press it again while you’re in the air to gain more height. Bump into the chimp holding the pineapple to steal it from him.

Arty Party

What to do:
Cover the ground in as much paint as possible. The chimp whose colour covers the most ground earns the most points. Pick up buckets to drop extra paint and run into balloons to create a large paint splash.

How to play:
Press and hold the button to run forward. The aiming arrow moves automatically, so wait until it’s facing the right direction before you press the button. Steal buckets from other chimps by charging into them.

Press and hold the button to swim forward. Release the button to dive under the water and hide from Bob. The aiming arrow moves automatically, so wait until it’s facing the right direction before you press the button.

Bullseye

What to do:
Swing and fling your chimps towards the target.

  • Land in the blue zone for one point.
  • Land in the white zone for two points.
  • Hit the bullseye for a massive three points.

Grab coconuts or bounce onto the bongo before you hit the target to multiply your score.

How to play:
Press the button to grab onto the nearest peg. Hold the button to swing your chimp round and round. Release the button to fling your chimp off the peg. If you’re holding the beehive, bump into other chimps to pass it on to them.

Team up with another chimp. Try to put the ball in the other team’s goal while protecting your own.
