Our first ever iPhone game… Monkey Blast!

I’ve always been someone who likes to dabble in many creative projects at once. After giving birth to our first son, it was only a few weeks before I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into something new.

So I started drawing… it’s been a long time since I’ve picked up my pencil and paper, but without my busy full-time job and with a new little baby to look after, I needed something creative to give my brain some stimulation between naps and nappy changes!

As I started to draw, I kept thinking… this would make a funny game! At this point in time, my husband and a friend of ours had already decided to give the world of iPhone app development a try, and so my little hobby developed into a potentially bigger project, and eventually, the first iPhone game to be released by our team of 3, known as “Blue Llama

I don’t have any background in game design… much like my many other creative side projects and online sources of passive income that you’ll read about on this blog. I’ve just decided to give it a go and have self-taught the skills I needed to get a basic game online. It’s a great achievement to be able to try something new, and hopefully with enough support and downloads from users, we might even see a little money come in to cover the time that was put into this game and possibly set us up for more games in the future.

Just a few months later, Blue Llama‘s first game “Monkey Blast” is complete, and is ready to be released on the iPhone App Store on 1st September 2015.

The monkeys have stolen a rocket and are taking it to the skies in this fast-paced endless flying game!

Tilt your phone left and right to navigate and try to collect as many bananas as you climb higher and higher! Keep an eye out for super bananas to get BONUS POINTS! Watch out for rotten bananas that will lower your score. But most importantly, avoid the monkey villains who will try to TAKE YOU OUT! The higher you climb, the faster your rocket flies!


The game is free to download, so make sure you check it out. Our funding for future games and other projects relies on word of mouth, reviews, downloads and support from readers like you! Thank you
