Ape Quest, known in Japan as Saru Get You: The Record of Piposaru War (サルゲチュ: ピポサル戦記), is a role-playing spinoff from the Ape Escape series. It is a PlayStation Portable title and was released in North America and Europe exclusively on the PlayStation Store, with an UMD in Japan only. It is downloadable as a free Starter Pack, with the remainder of the game available as three separate downloadable chapters.


The king of the Toqsica Kingdom sends his son with the respected knight D' Apetagnan on a pilgrimage to the seal that holds the Apetron, a group of apes that terrorized the kingdom ages ago. They are also known as the Pipotrons. However, the king's son impulsively eats the banana-shaped seal, releasing the Apetron upon the land again. Now the prince must save the land from its curse.


The player takes control of the prince and travels across various areas, meeting Ape Team members, fighting monsters, earning Chips and carrying out quests. The player must choose from predetermined routes consisting of turns in the way of a board game. The player traverses across these routes, but once chosen, the player cannot move or stop. On each turn, the player can open the menu, which allows them to save, equip items and perform other actions. This can be done at the end of each route as well. Turn-based battles and minigames can also occur randomly. Battles rely on the equipment used and units' strength. Minigames, on the other hand, are entirely based on skill. These can deduct hit points, or "Guts," as well. The player can also visit towns and dungeons as well as members of the Ape Team.

Ape Team[]

The Ape Team is composed of ape warriors that the player can summon in a fight at the cost of Chips if they are is in a tough spot. The player can collect different members by talking to the vendors around the area. After you talk with them, they are added on the list of Ape Team members. All Ape Team members have a relationship value which increases when purchasing items from them.


The game's storyline revolves around destroying various golems throughout each area. These take the form of a lion, a wolf, a snake and a crab among others. These are in minigame-form and usually involve dodging attacks until the foe moves in, then attacking.
