Three of the four characters have to be unlocked by utilizing the currency available in the game. The game features newly introduced organic environments, more powerups, new obstacles and more achievements, a bigger demon monkey and special powers for the player character.
Imangi co-founder, Keith Shepherd stated that the new game is completely based on Utility Engine. This will enable the game to be supported on multiple platforms. The company is monetizing the game using in-app payments which users will have to undertake to access coin doublers, new powerups etc. quickly.
Just as in the first installment, this game also features the granting of powerups and upgrading of abilities on collecting a lot of coins. However, this is comparatively slow and players can use the in-app purchases in order to buy high scores and get ahead in the game sooner.
