Wild Kratts Monkey Mayhem!

Hi everyone! We're proud to announce the release of a new HTML5 title for Wild Kratts! This game was a ton of fun to work on and we were able to do a lot of really cool stuff with Martin and Chris's Creature Power Suits. Unfortunately we weren't able to test the actual power suits in-house, but we did our best to make the in-game suits almost as fun as the real thing.
The South American Rainforest is home to all sorts of animals, and the landscape is quite puzzling.
Wild Kratts Monkey Mayhem is a puzzle-platformer that you can play from your mobile browser or your desktop computer. Navigate your way through the South American Rainforest collecting fruit, looking for wildlife, and avoiding danger! Yes, your kids can play it too, so share.

 Only 140556 possible combinations.
We designed each of the 12 levels as several interchangeable sections, so each time you (or your child) play, the environment is shuffled around a bit, with a weighted preference for more difficult puzzles if you prove yourself a skilled jungle explorer. We also built a level editor into the game that lets you shuffle sections around yourself to try something new or visit a section that may not have appeared on your playthrough.

Martin gets tough.
Puzzles require that the brothers use teamwork and their unique Creature Powers to get them both through the rainforest. Try out the game for all of the amazing animal action!

It has been great fun working with the folks at PBS KIDS and the Kratt Brothers to bring this game to life!

  1. Hi, my kid loves this game, but we can not get the animal powers. How do you get the discs¿?

    1. The brothers find them as they progress through the levels. You should get the Rhino disc early on in Level 2, once you cross the river (you'll need to swap to Martin since Chris starts off trapped in that level). I'm glad your kid enjoys the game!

  2. My son loves this game but he loses all of his progress and has to start at level 1 every time he goes back in to play. We even set him up with a PBS profile and we make sure he stays signed in but it hasn’t made a difference. Is there any way for him to select levels or is that the intent of the game?

    1. I'm sorry he's experiencing problems with the game! It should save his progress between plays: he won't be able to select levels (unless he uses the Level Editor), but if he taps "Continue" on the title scene (not "New Game") it will load the last level he played. If he taps "New Game", all progress is erased for a fresh playthrough.

      If he only ever sees "Play Game" when he visits the page (no "Continue" button), progress isn't being saved at all. I'm not sure how that would happen, but let me know what OS/browser you're using and I can try to replicate the problem. Progress is saved in the browser itself, so he shouldn't need to be logged in or anything; it should just work. Oh, also let me know if this is in the PBS KIDS Games App or on the Wild Kratts website.

  3. Thank you so much for the quick reply! He’s playing it through the PBS Wild Krafts website on an iPad mini 3 with iOS 12.4.8. I even looked to see if it was something we could buy since he loves it so much (it’s awesome, you guys did a great job), but couldn’t find anything. Also, I’ve tried it on Safari and the Google app but it’s like the PBS website refreshes overnight and there’s no continue button.

    1. I just checked that device on our end and am getting the same result your experiencing. I'll see what we can do!

    2. Okay, I found a fix for you. There probably needs to be a better long-term solution, but this will get it working for your son immediately. Essentially there's a security setting in Safari that's resetting the game storage every time the browser is closed. You can turn off this feature, and the game storage will be retained.

      On your iPad, tap the Settings app icon, select Safari in the left column, and find the toggle for "Prevent Cross-Site Tracking". Make sure this toggle is turned off.

      Currently PBS KIDS stores the games on a different website than pbskids.org, and they are loaded "cross-site" which causes this security setting to come into play.
