Catching apes

If an ape is in front of you, hit it with a stun club. Immediately after it falls down, use the net to catch it.

Easier water movement

On any level, instead of swimming through water that is going against you, keep jumping against it to get to places easier.


If monkeys see you and jump into their UFO, equip your slingshot and shoot it down. When it falls, the monkey will be temporarily stunned.

Bonus level

Capture all apes in all other levels to play a bonus level. Defeat Specter to capture him and view the ending.


Wrong button instructions

When you go to save the game, go to the view monkeys section (the floppy disk with a monkey on it). To view a monkey, you are instructed to press X, but instead you can also use Circle. Highlight a monkey and press either X or Circle. Move to the last monkey you have (you must have over two pages), then move back to the first monkey. There will be an "L" at the bottom left hand corner of the screen but you cannot move back with L. To exit this glitch, press R once and when you press L it will be gone.

No sound

In the main game, collect 40 Specter Emblems then enter the Ape Ping Pong mini-game. Select tournament or practice mode then perform a power hit. Immediately afterwards, pause game play. You will hear the sounds from the rest of the power hit. After you resume the game, you will see the power hit cut seen, but there will be no sound.
