    Sega show you just can't go wrong with the irresistable combination of monkeys and maracas.

    Rated on September 23, 2004 by Shleco

    Humans are evolved from monkeys. We do lots of things they do. Both communicate, have sex, scratch parts of their anatomy, eat bananas and shake maracas. What? You think monkeys don’t shake maracas?! ...

    Great selection of tracks and much fun to be had, providing you get the posture correct.

    Rated on January 07, 2007 by Fareday

    Samba de Amigo is a really nice game. You will get addicted to it! The background is a little… weird… and boring. And sometimes it hurts on the eyes. Your eyes will be with a lot of tears on it. But ...
