For the past number of years the Super Monkey ball series of games has been on of my favourites. For pure Arcade pick up and play, addictive fun there are few better franchises out there and I have spent many an hour playing these titles. Thus when I bought my 3DS recently I immediately managed to get hold of Super Monkey Ball 3D to go with it.

The main aim of the game remains the same in this version with you controlling a monkey in a ball over several levels. You have to guide him to the end of the level by rolling around an tilting the level. A bit like a balance game it requires a lot of skill and patience. Its very addictive, has the ultimate “just one more go” appeal and controls superbly on the 3DS. A perfect action puzzle title that is fun for all ages with a superb challenge to be had in conquering all the levels. Very few games these days make me want to conquer them all the way to the end but this does as the fun is so pure and simple yet so drastically hard in places. Do not worry though, its not too hard but for those who like a challenge there is certainly one here! The new controls using the normal 3DS circle pad or the tilting gyroscope tech built into the device both work although the former is probably the better of the two.

With in excess of 75 levels, all with new designs this will keep you busy and fans and new players alike will find this fresh and with plenty of great new ideas as you would expect from Sega. You also get a few mini games including monkey race and monkey fight but the sad thing is whereas previous titles have had 50+ mini games, this only has the two.

Now in terms of the actual 3D this works better than anything else on the system as the 3D gives you a more in depth feel for the level, makes you understand how to beat the course and also makes you more immersed in the game. It works a treat and if I was showing off the potential of the 3DS to friends this is the game I would use to demonstrate it.

All in all this is a wonderful pure gaming title that is fun to play for all ages, challenging for all ages and addictive. Maybes lacks the fun of mini games from other titles in the series but still a worthy addition to any collection!
