Super Monkey Ball Deluxe is the fourth game in the Super Monkey Ball series and the first to be not available on a Nintendo console. Instead, it was released on the PlayStation 2 and the XBox, both of which were rivals of the Nintendo GameCube, which hosted the home version of the original Super Monkey Ball. The game combines all the stages from Super Monkey Ball and Super Monkey Ball 2 into one package and adds a bunch of new stages. The mini-games, too, were carried over from the first games and expanded to include never-before-seen mini-games.
The concept of the game is rather simple; the player is a monkey inside a ball. Move the right analogue stick in a certain direction and the monkey begins to roll, get the monkey through the goal at the end of each level and the player moves onto the next.
