Story[]

AE2 Professor Casino City

The Professor reconsiders his vacation.

On first visit, Jimmy and Pipotchi chase a monkey through the streets and run into the Professor on vacation, who has just come back from a hot winning streak. Surprised by each other's appearance, Jimmy explains that he's here because he accidentally sent a batch of Peak Point Helmets to Specter and the monkeys. Knowing full well what could happen, the Professor tells him that he's heading back to the lab right away, but he's also worried about Pipotchi's safety, and suggests he come with him. Pipotchi is reluctant at first, but Jimmy agrees that it's probably for the best, and that's enough to persuade him. This marks the first level in the story where Pipotchi is absent.

Description[]

Inside the casino is a large circular room with a colorful pedestal in the center, lined with stars. Floating platforms, slot machines, and skinny ferns orbit the center pedestal and dot the walls, while four giant blocks painted to look like aces shuffle around in the corner. Dancing monkeys with afros take the spotlights; one on the pedestal and two more on the upper balconies, floating above dazzling spinning floors. Nearby, a monkey is performing a magic act that seems to separate his body into three pieces.

Upstairs is the bar, manned by two shady monkeys packing Uzis, a jukebox to the left, easily twice as tall as Jimmy, and pastel pink and orange dining booths to the right, seating another monkey in the back.

On the top floor is the circus stadium, where 4 monkey jesters in multicolored outfits are practicing their routines. Below, a green jester downs his flask and spits fire. Above, a yellow jester balances on a tightrope. At the far wall behind glass, another green jester stands on a catapult, ready to be launched up and over the enclosure in acrobatic display. Finally, amongst the numerous Pineapple Finches flying around is a blue jester, unable to perform, and a normal yellow pants monkey.

Strategy[]

Black Monkeys: Casino City introduces Pipo Monkeys with black pants, who carry submachine guns. Bullets aren't as fast as you would think and the monkeys are not very good at aiming, so the bullets are pretty easy to dodge. When the monkey stops to reload, that is the best time to run in and catch them. Alternatively, you can run behind them while they fire bullets as they are immobile while doing so.

The Slingback Shooter: Having just acquired the Slingback Shooter, there are quite a few distant targets to shoot and practice on, including Eggplant Bees, Pineapple Finches, and switches just out of reach.

Heads Up: In the bar area of the casino, you are faced with two black pants bartender monkeys. You can face the bartenders head on, or shoot the switch on the wall above them to dump a cabinet full of dishes on their heads.

Money Trick: The Casino is known for being the best level where you can earn a tremendous amount of money. Hit the slot machines with one of your gadgets. If you are ambushed by a Lousy Rat, let him hit you and take your coins, then use the Super Hoop to catch up to him and whack him before he disappears. If you succeed, he will drop your coins all in one place, allowing you to pick up many coins in a row, triggering the coin combo multiplier, and letting you reap 5-10 times the amount of coins you lost.

Time Trial[]

The time trial for this level requires you to catch 5 monkeys.

  • Bronze - 01' 00" 0

Trivia[]

  • Casino City is a level inspired by the glitz and glamor of casinos on the Las Vegas Strip.
  • Vincent and his description "Royale with cheese!!!" are a reference to John Travolta's character "Vincent Vega" from the 1994 film Pulp Fiction.
  • Jackson is a reference to Michael Jackson. His description "Don't blame it on the moonlight..." is a line in Michael Jackson's Blame It On the Boogie.
  • Simian Seagal is a reference to Steven Seagal.
  • Shaft is a reference to the character John Shaft from the 1971 film 'Shaft'
  • Clint Apewood is a reference to the actor Clint Eastwood, specifically from his role in Dirty Harry, as referenced by the phrase "Make my day".
  • Pelvis' name and description is a callback to Elvis Presley, who was given the nickname "Elvis the Pelvis" from his dancing style. The name Pelvis is also used comedically here; removing his pelvis from his body is part of his magic act.
  • Raymond's description "Yes, we have no bananas" is a reference to the song of the same.
  • Pierrot is so committed to his tight-roping bit that he cannot be shot down from a distance with the Slingback Shooter, even with explosive rounds.
