Real-time strategy games can be like a dance: you memorize the proper steps, pay attention to your pace, and watch your partner/opponent so you can react accordingly - calling in an airstrike, perhaps. So really, the fact that Jungle Rumble combines the RTS genre with rhythm-based gameplay shouldn't be too surprising.
The game, available now for $4 and compatible with iOS devices, pits you against an enemy tribe of monkeys that's come to steal what's most precious to you: bananas. Players tap the screen to the soundtrack's beat to move and attack, eventually overwhelming the rival simians and claiming all of the delicious fruit.
If you need some advice on how to be the best monkey strategist you can be, maybe you could take some lessons from fellow primate King Louie? He's got the rhythm part down and he is a king.
