Monkey Ball

The Monkey Ball title screen.

Monkey Ball is the first game of the Super Monkey Ball series released in Japan as an upright arcade cabinet. It was published by Sega and developed by Amusement Vision. It has only the Main Game with the exact same levels as Super Monkey Ball, except it only has one Master Stage (Master 9, A.K.A. Bridge Master In Super Monkey Ball). Super Monkey Ball is in fact, a port with added Party Games and Mini Games. However, the characters are only AiaiMeeMee, and Baby; as GonGon was introduced in the GameCube port.

GameplayEdit

AiAi, MeeMee, and Baby are playable. The difficulty levels available in the beginning are Beginner, Advanced and Expert, with Master being unlockable.
