Gah, getting that stupid bird in level 1 took me 82 deaths.

82 deaths? You are way more patient than I. After restarting the level twice I said screw it and closed the tab.

That bird is the first sign of how the game's played. Once you can bounce on its birdy little head, you've got a basic understanding of how to sieze monies. Don't expect to get all the coins on your first run; think of exiting a level as banking your earnings.

Doesn't seem to work in FF3.5/OSX. I couldn't get arrow keys to move the guy at all, though S did jump.

Hint: The way you seize money is to sue it, not its owner, e.g. THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI vs. $27,000 CASH. Then, since money doesn't have civil rights, if it can't prove it didn't come from a drug deal you get to keep it, and in the next level you get a new cop car, nifty SWAT gear, and a training facility to facilitate more money seizing.

This is fun and addictive (and frustrating). I've been playing it off and on for a week or so now since I saw it on Kongregate. At around 200 coins I thought I was about as far as I was going to get. Then at around 500 I thought it again. I'm at 685 now, and this time I really don't think I'll get much further.

Reminds me of Meat Boy, for the retro aesthetic and the near-sadistic difficulty. Fun!

bjrn, that's one of the aspects that I really like about this game; you can see pretty much from the start of a level where the coins are and how to collect them. It's all up to you to actually grab them all.

I refuse to recognize any entertainment value of this game due to the erroneous usage of Esq. and Sir together.

What confused me was why the game and character were named "Monkeyseize". Eventually I worked it out.

Matt Thorson is one of my favorite indie developers. Check out his other games here. (My favorites are Jumper Three and FLaiL. An Untitled Story is supposed to be excellent, but I haven't played it yet.)

Oh, geeze, this is pure platform crack. We picked up the new expansion for Race for the Galaxy today and I'm putting playing that off because I'm stuck in Moneyseize. CRACKTASTIC.

Is the text all pixely for that they're recreating that commodore 64 vibe, or am I missing some key font on my new system?

There are times I dislike my only net access being on a netbook.

This is one of those.

Hmm, you must have one of those super-low-resolution netbooks, because it was perfectly playable on mine (unusual for flash games). Try putting your browser in full-screen mode.

Pink birds flee when you kill an enemy.
Green birds flee when you double-jump.
Yellow birds flee on a timer (I think).

Oh my god, is this the same guy who did An Untitled Story? No wonder I'm so addicted to it, even though it's crazy hard. Archagon, definitely check it out. Probably my favorite freeware game ever.

Been playing Moneyseize off and on for the past week. When you hit some of the higher levels, the number of times you die is absurd. I stopped looking at the number of deaths as a negative, and think of them more as a badge that yes, I really was that persistent. Pretty sure I've got over 200 deaths in some levels. I saw some guy post that he'd gotten 2000 deaths in level 40 (haven't made it there yet).
