    Ape Out

    Ape Out is a wildly intense and colorfully stylized smash ‘em up about primal escape, rhythmic violence, and frenetic jazz. Build up nearly unstoppable momentum and use your captors as both weapons and shields to crush everyone on your procedurally generated path to freedom. Stylish Escape: Embrace bold colors and a dazzling perspective as you rush through tight corridors, open areas, and twisting labyrinths on a mad dash for freedom. Overcome all manner of human opposition, nefarious traps, and breakable obstacles to find each exit and escape captivity. Grab and Smash: Unleash your primal instincts and incredible strength to overpower your captors. Hold them steady to create a human shield, smash their feeble bodies into walls, or throw one into another in a violent explosion of humanity. Dynamic Soundtrack: Find your rhythm in the chaos as a dynamic soundtrack of drums, cymbals, and decapitations drive the action to the edge of mayhem.

    I dont think the game is "short" as commented by other players. I spent about 5 hours on the game.. and still I´m not on the end. Its hectic. Some of the "sublevels" take 20 times to be finished. One of the levels took me more then 50 retries! Two days till I was able to go through the level.
    And still.. I was trying it again and again.. and this is something I enjoy on the games. I really like it. Its one of the games in my TOP 20 list :-)

    Music, style, gameplay all on point for this game. It's amazing and I feel it's similar in a lot of respects to another game I like, Mr shifty.
    But it's short. Very short. 4 levels, broken into small sub sections as save points. Couple of hours gameplay if that.
    Can't help feel it needs one of two things
    1) 2-3 more levels. Would take the gameplay to 3_4 hours and it would feel a complete game.
    2) replayability. There's an arcade mode, but other than that's it. You're not rewarded for anything other than getting to the end.
    % enemies completed, secret collectibles in parts of the map. Something that makes you replay a level would be great

    This is a great game. It's a more stylish, somewhat simplified, Hotline Miami. Your first playthrough will likely only take a couple of hours, but additional modes unlock, adding replayability. Be warned; it can be a bit addictive, and one more run can easily turn into twenty more runs.
