Gameplay primarily consists of taking care of the virtual monkey by playing mini games in order to level up, feeding it bananas and energy drinks to gain energy, and entertaining it.
Each Minigame has 3 options of levels to it. Upgrades of mini games may be purchased with coconuts or received as a gift for leveling up on a mini game. With each added level to a minigame, the harder it gets. For example, Jungle Jam Level 1 is much easier than Jungle Jam Level 3.
- Jungle Jam: In a Tap Tap Revenge-style game, players tap two bongos as various fruit fall towards it. A target is located on the bongo head. The objective is to tap the bongos just at the correct time when the fruit hits the middle of the target. Tapping it right on time creates score multipliers, while missing it erases them. Each game is has the same time for gameplay, therefore the songs played are the same every time you play it.
- Copy Writer: A typewriter is shown with three keys: X, Y, and Z (sometimes, only X and Y is shown, but this is most likely due to a fresh game). At the top of the typewriter is a piece of paper with different letter combinations consisting of X, Y, and Z (e.g. YXX). The goal is to tap the keys in order of the letters shown on the paper, then swiping it afterwards. For example, the letters XYXX are shown. The player would have to tap, in this order, the X key, the Y key, and the X key another two times, then swiping the paper with their finger.
- Banana Drama: A 9x9 grid consists of the following items: bananas bunches, hourglass, wooden crates, snakes, bomb shells, and rotten bananas. Players must tap the ripe banana bunches to fill up four slots on the left. Once filled, the crate must be tapped to box the items. Tapping the hourglass allows players to gain extra time. The snakes, bombs, and rotten bananas are not desired and are swiped away.
