Super Monkey Ball 2 is the sequel to Super Monkey Ball, a puzzle platform game developed by Amusement Vision and published by SEGA for the Nintendo GameCube in 2002. It follows the same gameplay from previous games: guiding one of the four playable characters to the end of a stage by hitting the finish line.



  • Aiai
  • Meemee
  • Baby
  • GonGon


  • Dr. Bad Boon
  • Dr. Bad Boon's assistant


Dr. Bad Boon has created a device that is capable of destroying the entire Monkey Island, and Aiai, Baby, Meemee, and Gongon must put a stop to his plans by traveling through the various worlds.


Gameplay follows the typical Monkey Ball format: guide the monkey to the end of the level. Scattered around the levels are bananas, in either one or five-bunch increments, and add to the overall score. Each level has a time-limit and the player's score is dependent on the time it takes to finish the level. If a player falls off the stage, or runs out of time they will lose a life. When the player runs out of lives, they have a chance to continue or quit. Throughout the game, players earn "Play Points" which allow them to unlock new Party Games.
