OverviewOverview

Ape Out is a stylised fighting game where you control an ape trying to escape a facility. Although it's violent, the gameplay focuses on rhythm and style rather than just gore. As you move, grab and throw your attackers the soundtrack responds to create Jazz music with drums and cymbals.

Viewed from above, you rush through tight corridors, halls and twisting stairways on your dash for freedom. Each opponent has a different attack and behaviour to overcome. It needs both fast thinking and quick reactions to survive.
