Planet of the Apes is an action adventure game developed by Visiware Studios for the PlayStation and PC, loosely based on the film series and book of the same name. Gameplay was reportedly inspired by the Tomb Raider series.

Versions were reportedly in development for the Sega Saturn and later Sega Dreamcast, but both were cancelled for unknown reasons. The game suffered long delays, with the Saturn and PlayStation versions being announced in 1997, finally seeing release in late 2001 for the PC (alongside companion Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance games), and a year later for the PlayStation, with all these versions being published by Ubisoft rather than by Fox. Had it not been cancelled, the Dreamcast version would have likely been released roughly around the same time.
