Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania received a lot of criticism for its rendering of Monkey Target, and for good reason. The physics just feels wrong and a lot of people struggle to get results in a once popular mini-game. But here’s the thing: the physics may be bad, but it’s damn consistent, and I think I figured it out.
In fact, I figured them out enough to get to the top of the PS5 leaderboard for Monkey Target with almost double the score of the runner-up. I don’t think my score is particularly impressive, however; There is a lot of room for improvement and I only put about an hour into practicing. I think I just figured out something that other people don’t have. So I got the world record in Monkey Target to the best of my knowledge and belief.
