About shinymonkey

shinymonkey is a games development house, based in the UK.

Our first game, Leila and the Little Folk, was launched in April 2014 - it's also available for Android, iPhone, and iPad.

We're very proud to say that it was nominated for the British Academy New Talent Awards in 2015.

Max and the Martians, a follow-up to Leila and the Little Folk, is available to download for Android devices, iPhone, and iPad. .

Wordily is a word-based puzzle game, with different game styles to suit different tastes. Find out all about it here.

We're excited to announce that the latest versions of Leila and Wordily feature brand new soundtracks courtesy of the amazing MakeFire Music. We think it really enhances the atmosphere of both games.


Wordily is a word puzzle game that challenges you to find as many words as you can, in five different modes of play. It's available now for Android and iOS.

Max and the Martians is an adventure in which you help a young boy called Max on his journey to the stars. It's available now - find out all about it here.
