-"Ape want eat banana, but ape hate ant! Ape collect banana, but want avoid ant!"

Welcome to a super fast onebutton reaction game for the Commodore 64 made by the Megastyle team. 

"Apeshit" is a one button game where you jump from tree to tree while you try to avoid the scary insects. On the left tree Ape slides down the trunk, and on the right side ape climb up. Try to pick up bananas to gain extra points, but watch it so you dont jump into a branch while trying to pick it up.

Plug a joystick in port 2 on your C64 and press fire to jump. This game is especially made to be used with the SIBUGA controller to get the ultimate one button experience.

The game has a built in trainer, you can activate it on the title screen by pressing F8. Note that once you have started the game with cheatmode activated, you will not get a save highscore

I bought it and went apeshit in a moment!
One of my goals in life now is get to 100.

Good luck! :) According to this highscorepage world record is 202

eh, no. it's too hectic and too simple. i mean the graphics are ok, but it's not much of a 'game' is it? sorry... not for me 2/10

Thanks for the constructive feedback. 

hi, is there a .crt file for this game?

Sorry, not as a digital download. But its available as a physical cartrdige from Bitmapsoft: https://www.bitmapsoft.co.uk/product/apeshit/

v1.01 update up on my itch page and the csdb webpage

Addictive. Is it normal that I have changing border colors? (downloaded from CSDB, played using WinVice 3.2, corrupted high score after red border color and score of 125)

Seems like if you do over 100, it corrupts the high score on next round. Still I love it :D


The red color border should not be the reasons for any corruptions. It's just an indication that a counter miscounted. The border increase color was not removed in the finale build. When you are saying "corrupted high score" are you refering to the graphics or corrupted highscore save file ?

At game over, the score graphics had glitches too (I made 125 and the character for 5 was buggy as I remember), but I meant corrupted high score after the next round: If you do a score over 100, the next game - regardless of it's resulted score - overwrites the high score.

An update is on it's way! :)

Thank you, downloaded right away! (I'm poison/Singular Crew on CSDB ;) )


Happy New Year 2022! :)
