Questions from the comments: 


What is the monkey society like? Do the monkeys learn to hate bloons early on in life? Are they taught about the monkey-bloon war in school?
The Monkeys are taught about the bloon threat very early in their life, often having their elders show them the ropes while keeping them at a safe distance. It’s very much a learn quickly or get left behind sort of world they live in. 

If there soon be Bloons Monkey City 2, then how with their Monkey Knowledge cards and packs? If I see, common-Tier 0's (white) 10 pts, uncommon-Tier 2's (green) 30 pts, rare-Tier 3's (blue) 80 pts, epic-Tier 4's (purple) 250 pts, and legendary-Tier 5's (yellow) 650 pts.
We’re currently working on some of our other popular titles. There aren’t any plans to start development on BMC 2. 

Any news on a programing language that supports both the pc and mobile versions of games? Or should I just give up waiting on any new games that support the pc? This site used to be fun but I find myself only playing like 3 older games nowdays. Why do yall not use html5 I thought it was to replace flash and java? Looks like yall only love Mobile and hate web for some reason.
Over the years we’ve changed from developing web-based games to mobile/steam applications. With that being said, we will continue to support the flash games for as long as we can. 

A number of our newer games can be found on Steam. Bloons TD 6, BATTD, Tower Keepers, BTD Battles… 

Dear Ninja Kiwi, Me and a friend have been talking and we have an idea for Bloons Monkey City2. (You have made BTD1-6 so why not?) For BMC2, use all the towers ever used in any BTD game, (Dartling Gun, Monkey Sub, Heli Pilot, Alchemist, etc.) and the upgrade system used in BTD6. With that setup you have the 3rd tier costing 20 bloonstones the 4th tier costing 50 bs and the 5th tier costing 75 bs. (This is all just a suggestion.) Since you will have a lot of towers and 4th and 5th tier upgrade buildings you will need a lot of space to build them. To make that work, have more of the upgrade buildings so that they can support multiple upgrades per building, also make the progression of difficulty slower. (It would also be fun to have more cities.) Also I can’t play mobile games so could you put it on the Ninja Kiwi website? If that is not possible with Flash, could you remake the website using a different system to support it? From someone who would love BTD6 and BMC2. (If you have any questions on what I have laid out please let me know.)
We know there is a lot of love for BMC and we absolutely love this game as well. As we’re a smaller development team we’re currently focusing on some of our other popular games. 

If monkeys live in villages, why are the villages we see in game so small?
Not all monkeys live in villages. In fact, the villages are more like community hubs, used to protect the electrical appliances from the weather and a place to gather for social activities. 

Since the Monkeys have very advanced technology, more advanced than ours, have they discovered time travel, and could they also replicate Finn’s 4D sword from Adventure Time?
If they have discovered time travel they surely wouldn’t let us know about it. 

...what exactly is Dr. Monkey doing? Is he doing his research or is he helping the Monkeys and AT characters pop the Bloons in Ooo? Or is THAT his research?
Dr. Monkey is working on a top-secret project. 

why does the temple not need sacrifices? and if so, it isn't the minkeys god, is it?
The Sun Temple requires a sacrifice (or 50,000) to enhance its powers.  

Does monkeys eats other fruits? Like, apple, orange, etc. And their lunch are only bananas?
When they can source other exotic fruits they will definitely try them.

Will Pat Fusty get a "Pat Funky" skin? that'd be a cool combo with the Benjammin skin in Co-op
Personally I think they should all have 80’s retro skins. 

Real monkeys are intelligent. Are these ones any different?
They’ve figured how to pop a BAD. Can you do that? 

I bet that the reason that the MOAB Mauler does +15 instead of +10 damage now to blimps is because they switched to necromancer technology from whatever they were using before.
The Engineer likes to tinker with machines and make improvements where possible. 

Do the farms have brains?
Many organisms do not have true brains, but rather a "nerve net" of neurons scattered through their bodies.

What kinds of traditions do the monkeys have? (besides banana, of course)
If you spend enough time among them you will be asked to join in their super-secret full moon karaoke night. Now that is a truly magical night.
