Reviewer's comments
"Yeah, fairly confused too about the name of this level, I am in hate with those outfits, but the odd guy did look surprisingly cool. Nothing special about this, the lighting was cool and gave an interesting look to the game, that is all. Wolfy Regards." - Wolf7 (19-Mar-2021)
"What's to do with the title? There's no monkey swings at all here. Lara's model (or whoever she is) look unnerving. Seriously, the builder should have time to make it a proper level instead of just testing body-swapping feature." - Charles Kane (19-Mar-2021)
"It’s not a monkeyswing that’s being demonstrated here, nor is it (as some claim) a flipmap; rather, it’s a meshswap, in which the meshes of the Lara stand-in’s body get swapped for others (in laymen’s terms, she changes her outfit). It’s perhaps not all that disconcerting when on top of that, the head is swapped for a fair-haired mop-top as well if you use your guns, since either version of the character comes straight from uncanny valley anyway (the builder uses photographs of Angelina Jolie for the faces). I support dmdibl’s explication of the title, which follows the hallowed etymological tradition of lucus a non lucendo, although the level sadly cannot profit from it." - Mulf (04-Mar-2021)
"Another test level, showing us how to switch between character models. And a little bit of costume design. So why exactly is the level named "Monkey Swing"?" - Nuri (26-Feb-2020)
"Obviously a test level to demonstrate a flip map upon firing the pistols. Lara's head changes to a different identity entirely BUT what on earth is she wearing?" - Torry (06-Jan-2020)
"A test level. And a very elusive one at that: no monkeys or monkeyswings to be seen. Must be an inside joke. Plays the same way as that one other testlevel with switching characters, and that was possibly even used as the base level for this one as the character's head gets swapped when firing. Curiously, all inventory icons were missing as well. 1 minute. 10/19" - Treeble (03-Nov-2019)
"Another test level only for builders. Use a reach-in switch to change Lara's outfit and the outfit of another character too and kill an enemy (he doesn't attack) if you want. Tha's all in this single room." - Jose (19-Jan-2018)
"Right, well. All you get here is two characters who you can toggle between throughout the use of a switch. A guard appeared at one point, but it didn't seem to affect the "flow" of the "level" Where is the monkey swing, too?" - Ryan (07-Aug-2016)
"Much like Carlos De La Calle's test level, we find ourselves swapping between playable characters again via interacting with a reach-in switch(rather than the supposed non-existent monkey swinging alluded to in the level title.) This time however, there is no Lara to swap to (unlike Carlos's release) and instead, find ourselves transitioning control over from one indistinguishable scantily-clad woman to the other, with one of the fliprooms having an enemy you can take down and watch humorously float up into the air for a bit, while the other fliproom lacks the enemy altogether. Overall, this is just another test level that is only worth looking at, if you're extremely curious. Otherwise, don't even bother wasting your time with this one." - Ceamonks890 (23-Sep-2014)
"Monkey swing..... more like monkey business, with two tarts taking turns to play in a rubbery room. More disturbing is the head change from brunette to blond when each character is shooting her guns. Getting to shoot the villain and watch him die suspended in matrix pose in mid-air is a bit more fun. No finish trigger, no inventory screen, no monkey swing, no point, except that the concept of costume change is well- demonstrated." - EssGee (20-Apr-2013)
"Another miniscule level, showcasing a toggle effect between two (scantily clad) Lara wannabees. Bright and colourful certainly, but there's nothing much more to say. Also, monkey swing? What monkey swing?" - Jay (13-Feb-2011)
"I was so confused by the sudden fall from the ceiling I didn't notice neither the guard, nor the character change. NOTES: If you try to light a flare, playing as any character, the game crashes... at least on my PC. And if you activate the guard and then change the character twice without killing him, he'll disappear. One point for the author played with lighting. One for the textures. One together for possibility to change the outfit and for the guard object. SUMMARY: If you looking for a monkey swing challenge, this is the wrong address!" - DJ Full (05-Oct-2010)
"You can play this erroneously named level twice - for twice the fun! Once as the first of the two playable characters,with a strangely levitating guard to shoot;the second as the same character but wearing a different outfit,but with no guard.The choice is yours.Oh,what to do,what to do??" - Orbit Dream (06-Aug-2010)
"Except of the colorful lightning, I think, this level is not better than the test level of Carlos. I thought of giving a point to enemies but if you shoot the guy, he flies strangely through the air. So I don't. Not recommended for anyone." - manarch2 (30-Jul-2010)
"A curiosity - due to a title that is obscure (no monkeyswing here) and due to the three characters that make an alternating appearance. Not really worth a look." - MichaelP (13-Jun-2010)
"No monkey swing anywhere in sight, hence the title. Two tarts from a Carlos level have wandered into this one. They appear to exchange places when a red switch is activated. The procedure can be reversed, so apparently a demonstration of flip rooms." - dmdibl (07-Jun-2010)
