MonkeyBall, the beloved game of physics-based puzzles is coming to StarLaunch! This high-intensity multiplayer competitive puzzler will be an inaugural flagship title for this blockchain entertainment platform.
The “super monkey ball” is an arcade game developed by Sega. The game was released in Japan on November 26, 1994 and became a smash hit. It has since been ported to multiple platforms including the Nintendo 64, PlayStation 2, GameCube, Xbox 360, and Wii. In February 2018, it was announced that the game would be featured as one of the inaugural flagships on StarLaunch.

MonkeyBall, a play-to-earn game headquartered in Solana, has been chosen as the launch partner of StarLaunch, a new IDO and incubation platform situated in Solana.
The first IDO on a new platform sets the bar high for all subsequent sales, both in terms of project quality and final results for participants. Due to its enormous audience and financial support, as well as excellent fundamentals as an original high-production-value, Play-to-Earn game, StarLaunch chose MonkeyBall as a logical fit. Solana Ventures, NFX, iAngels, Longhash, CMS, Republic, Shalom Meckenzie (founder of DraftKings), Yoni Assia (founder of eToro), Shahaf Bar-Geffen (CEO of COTI), and Nimrod Lehavi were among the venture capitalists and angel investors that contributed $3 million to MonkeyBall (co-founder of Simplex).
The sale will take place on November 30th, with 1% of MonkeyBall’s entire supply, or 10,000,000 MBS tokens, up for grabs. The price is fixed at $0.04 per MBS, implying a $40 million fully diluted value.
MonkeyBall is a Play-2-Earn game that combines the turn-based gameplay of Final Fantasy with a FIFA Street-style scenario, with monkeys as the soccer players. Each player is in charge of a squad of four monkeys that must defeat other monkey teams in soccer matches. Users are rewarded with MonkeyBucks $MBS, the primary currency that powers the game economy, when they win matches.
MBS may also be gained through completing objectives, owning stadiums that hold games, or rooting for a monkey squad at other competitions.
MBS tokens may be used to enhance one’s monkey squad or to purchase stuff from the game’s shop. The game DAO will administer the in-game shop and accompanying treasury, which will be regulated by the SCORE token, ensuring transparency and user ownership of the game.
Owners of MBS will be eligible for the impending MonkeyBall NFT drop of 5000 Gen0 monkeys if they purchase it now. Once the game is released, these will be the first NFTs that can be used to create monkey teams.
On StarLaunch, the MonkeyBall IDO will use its unique bi-token participation approach.
The governance token and the IDO access stake are separated in StarLaunch, with the former handled by $STARS, a deflationary token, and the latter by Hydrazine ($N2H4). The “fuel” for participating in IDOs on StarLaunch is hydrazine, which is obtained by staking $STARS. The StarLaunch pad’s insurance system is one of its more unusual features, since it protects consumers against project failures and blatant frauds. As a result, selecting the correct projects for IDOs is even more critical.
“We’re ecstatic to be chosen as StarLaunch’s flagship IDO,” stated MonkeyBall’s Head of Marketing, Oren Langberg. “StarLaunch, which came from the same team that gave us CardStarter, has all of the qualities we were looking for in a partner, most notably a team as committed and MonkeyNuts as ourselves, as well as an established track record of successful IDOs.”
“MonkeyBall is the on-chain game of the future. As a result, we’re ecstatic to have them as our flagship IDO,” adds StarLaunch CEO Aatash Amir. “As one of the most eagerly anticipated play-to-earn games, MonkeyBall will set the bar for the top-tier projects launching on StarLaunch.”
MonkeyBall is a turn-based soccer game based on the Solana system, similar to FIFA Street and Final Fantasy combined into one amusing monkey-themed game. Tokens may be earned by winning or just watching other players’ matches.
The game has a great production value and is being created on Unity, so it can be played on both desktop and mobile devices.
