The Super Monkey Ball Series is a line of puzzle and strategy games produced by Sega. Similar to Marble Madness, its core gameplay feature a monkey inside a ball rolling through many kinds of stage to get to the goal.
The main goal of Super Monkey Ball is to roll your monkey in a ball to the goal. However, you don't control the monkey - you control the floor itself. Tilt your way through obstacles and fallout zones while collecting bananas along the way to give you more monkeys, or lives.
Want to take a break from those challenging levels? There are also minigames, or Party Games, available to play. You can play with up to four players and test your skill against them. The most famous minigames include Monkey Target, Monkey Bowling, and Monkey Race, to name a few.
