A pet monkey is hiding up a tree and mischievously trying to drop both bananas and coconuts on to its owner's head. All the player has to do is stand on the ground endeavouring to catch as many bananas as possible, while carefully avoiding the heavy coconuts.

Tony: A highly original game, but one that falls short of being addictive because not a lot seems to happen. The other problem is that the choice of colours is not as good as it could be. 5/10

John: A fast, uncontrollable game that uses cyan as its main colour - which doesn't help the tedium. The graphics are good, especially when the monkey's owner slips on the bananas. 6/10

Mark: It's a pity that the playing speed can't be altered, because the game often seems too fast to control properly. You can, however, define your own keys. 6/10

The cassette inlay says ‘Naanas', the title screen, 'Nanas', obviously a bit confused! Another of Mikrogen's new games which insists that there are user-definable keys when there aren't - obviously a bit confused! The aim of Naanas (or whatever) is to dash around catching bananas which a monkey is throwing down. If they hit the floor and you tread on one, you slip over and lose a life. In addition there are coconuts dropping with painful consequences. And that's it. Graphics are reasonable but pretty simple and the monkey doesn't move at all. The cursor control keys work quite well in this game, no joystick option. Pretty and fun to play for a short while. Overall CRASH rating 52% M/C.
