OverviewOverview

Bonkies is a co-operative building game where you construct buildings from different blocks. With a jetpack and a grab-arm you work with other players to manoeuvre the blocks into place. It starts quite simply but soon gets everyone shouting.

You are put to the test with all sorts of quirky constructions on distant planet. Your task is to stack blocks so they fit a given outline. To do this you team up with friends and master the use of your trusty banana-fuelled jetpack and a powerful robo-arm. The blocks have their own challenges as they each have different properties: magnets, rockets and even nuclear fusion.

Along with the multiplayer action there's a single player campaign.
