|Released around the same time as the movie remake (2001 Tim Burton), it's
actually based on the original novel by Pierre Boulle, the original film (1968
Franklin J. Schaffner) and the first sequel Battle Beneath The Planet Of The Apes.
You are Ulysses, a human whose spacecraft crashed on an ape-ruled planet.
When you are captured and readied for 'examination' you want to save your skin, and
thankfully a merciful ape gives you a chance to do so. As a human you have no tools,
only your intelligence and some loincloth to prevent staring eyes. The game is
played from a third-person viewpoint, and you can meet certain characters and talk
to them to get information. Hand-to-hand combat ensues when you encounter an
unfriendly ape, obstacles need to be overcome by thinking and some acrobatics. You can also use some guns.
