Monkey Hero (The Adventures of Monkey Hero in Europe) is a role-playing game developed by Blam! and published by Take-Two Interactive for the Sony PlayStation video game console.
The game is similar to the likes of The Legend of Zelda and Secret of Mana and borrows many ideas from these games. Game play elements include large dungeons, fighting and puzzles. It had a whimsical manga-inspired look that makes use of both 3D and 2D graphics.
You play as Monkey, the goofy top-knotted main character. Monkey is sent to the Waking Realm to defeat the Nightmare King and under the guidance of Master Sage, must reclaim all of the pieces of the Magic Storybook. The various pieces of the Magic Storybook are displayed on an in game map. At the time of the game's creation the playable area was very large, especially if you take into account the various dungeons.
