Last week on Stiq Figures, we paged through the official Final Fantasy VIII website. Taking a nostalgic ride through a tiny Flash site was so fun that we visited another one this week: the official site for Sony’s PS1 classic, Ape Escape.
Ape Escape, which released in June 1999, was considered innovative in its use of Sony’s DualShock controller, as players moved a boy named Spike while swinging a net to capture monkeys by using both analog sticks on the controller.
Naturally, the game’s official site drove the point home, as the Flash-based webpage included an image of a DualShock controller for viewers to use for navigation. The still-active site also contains two mini-games for players to toy with, one of which is seen above. Now, bask in the collective cringes from web designers across the globe.
