I used to have this game on a console a long long time ago.

Looking forward to getting back in to it.

One of my nominations for a change, not that I'm great at it, but always enjoyed playing it in the arcades as it gave pretty good value for money once you learned the levels and how they change as you go through.

It's a nice quick game too, reasonably quick to finish each stage/rescue the girl - no powerups, just side scrolling adventuring through the jungle, avoiding / killing things. I hope people enjoy it :)

Game No 3 from 3 that I've never heard of before :D

This is one of my first attempts. I thought I was through all the levels and had saved the girl - but apparently not because as I took a drink a native killed me :D

Will try again tomorrow when my eyes aren't hanging out of my head.

Just can't work out that end bit with the girl. I assume i am meant to jump in to her. But it seems you start out in the wrong synch straight away.

Amazing! Been wondering about this game for years... I have a distinct memory of playing this back in the mid to late 80's at the Royal Melbourne Show. I remember they had a tent there full of arcade machine

7,200 on my first go! Will have a fair dinkum crack later :P

FYI the Twin Galexies record for this game is 800,000. The second highest is only 49k or so. That is Jungle Hunt (US) but essentially the same game I believe.

Jed

That is Jungle Hunt (US) but essentially the same game I believe.

I'm not sure about the gameplay or difficulty, but there are some graphical differences, Jungle Hunt has a dude in a jungle helmet and safari suit (pith helmet?) where Jungle King has a tarzan-like dude - definitely the cooler version for that sake. Who wants to swing through the jungle looking like a sweaty pom on a Jungle Safari package tour ?

There's also some differences in the sampled sounds and colours used in the levels, if I recall right.

Pelly

Two attemps and both times I got 9,600 :-/ I can finally get past the end of the level and save the girl, but then the bloody monkey on the rope gets me on cycle 2 :-/

800,000 is insane!

Yeah, gameplay wise I mean. Just putting up the TG high score for the game. I can't see me getting near that lol and the safari version looks crap, was that version introduced after they got sued for infringing the tarzan copyright?

The game was changed to the hunter and pith helmet as the company who owned the Tarzan copyright sued for the "use" of the tarzan image and call in the orginal.

I played this a little back in the day. From memory I played more of it on the C64 than anything else....classic game though

Given it's from '82 and the TG record is 800k, I'd say it loops for sure - after how many times through, not sure :unsure

Holy Crap.... yeh it's a low scoring game, which makes 800k on this game pretty astounding.. if that 800k was played at Mame defaults, that is, where you don't get any bonus at the end based on timer. (like we are playing it)

If each run through this is approx 5 minutes for an approx 10k score, and without the ability to pickup any extra men along the way, that's probably around 6-7 hours of play without hardly losing any lives :o

Must have been Rain Man :D

I remember lick a prize too, how exciting it was as a kids to try and get all the parts of a prize, you'd always end up one piece short, everyone hunting for usually that same elusive piece :)Chocolate paddle pop for me, closely followed by banana.

Try holding the joystick in the up/left diagonal when running you jump higher;) If you think the second level boulders are hard wait till the third :o

I find this a hard game - maybe I'm not patient enough, but as soon as I hit the button I realise my demise.
Another one I have never played and nice simple controls, where the game changes the control function by the different scenarios. I like it.

Anyway here is score so I at least register one, haven't reached the hill or natives yet, much less had a chance to rescue the Damzel.

Ho hum off to night shift soon.........but I would like to say this new format of the MGL really suits me, it gives me more time to play games I enjoy that I would have missed due to work, and gives everyone a bit of variety. You can smash into a game for awhile, then swap to the other one if you like. The staggered 2 week system is a keeper I think :)

Finally sat down and had a decent bash, but still a fair way off my best... hopefully can get near that again before Sunday week.

Had one very lucky/flukey moment where I was running out of air, and got the express elevator to the surface on a fast bubble just in time to grab another breath :) It gets hard to point-press from level 3 onwards for the crocs phase, I usually try to kill most of the crocs in level 1 and 2 for points though, not too hard once you get the timing right.

10,500 is the max at level 1 if you get all the crocodiles and only make one jump on the 4th screen. You can get more points if you are prepared to jump back and forth a few times over the mask wearing man on the 4th screen (100 pts per jump).

Quick tip to those on less than 10k - be brave on the first two levels. Level one rocks - just run and jump.

Anyone able to jump through level one vines without pausing ? I stop once on vine eight only. Am used to playing this with the timer bonus on.

It aint over till it's over in the MGL. ;)

Just starting to give this the attention it properly deserves. Got oh so close to my PB with this effort, hopefully I can go over the top by 7pm with a solid afternoon's play.

Don't take it the wrong way. Not a de-motivating speech, just some friendly banter. Trying to make things interesting around here. Any way, good luck with your efforts. At this rate, Ed_209 will probably finish no better than 2nd. And please, ED_209, don't take this comment the wrong way either.:D

Good luck everybody! Unfortunately I'm still moving house so no time to add to my score. :( Really hoping I can fit in another good game before the comp closes but it's doubtful.

nice one :D

Now that i've finished chopping all this damn wood up, I'm giving this a solid couple of hours to try and take you down :)

That 4th croc level is an absolute nightmare.

No improving my pitiful score. This game drives me insane, I just do not have the patience. I can get through level 1 no probs, but then lose lives in the swimming on stage 2. The painful pace it takes to get through level 1 over and over only to die on level 2 is just not fun for me :lol

Faaaaark pulled up 100 points short of Pelly :(

Was sitting on the vine thinking 'one more vine to equal Pelly, two more vines for 1st place' and then CHOKED big time with a completely mistimed jump :loldidn't get near that score again.

Would love to go hard for the next hour trying for better but I have MGL admin work to do and the new tourney to post.. lucky it's a labor of love.

Still 45 minutes to go though, plenty of time :D

I'm the same as John73, can get through level one easily and predict the score, but have never got past level two.

I think I'm second ;) ... and comments like that will only make me want to beat it more... Anyway, it will be hard to beat, but we'll see...

I'm a big enough man to admit when I was wrong. I guess second place is yours after all.

Unlucky mate, crazy you got soo close... Funny, I was thinking the same thing when doing those vines on my go, I think I got to the crocs, and managed to kill a few to get me over ED-209's score.

Had it since Friday. Haven't played it since. Would like to have posted earlier but screen shot could possibly give away tactics. No doubt you and Ed209 were better players but just tried to get maximum points on the pattern with the girl. Jumping over the masked man up to 60 times at 100 points per pop before timer would run out.

I was definitely point pressing on the girls but just didn't quite have a good enough technique to really take advantage of it. I normally finished level 1 with about 14,500 then level 2 with about 26,500... never really tried doing it on level 3 with the dude shooting arrows.. Level 4 crocs was the furthest I got.

That's hilarious! Well done anyway Spartan - great score.

Would have loved some time to compete this weekend. Reckon I could've had a shot at 1st place. At least my arcade machine looks good in my new house. :)

Interesting about the score leeching on this game. I didn't do that at all, and made the level 5 vines for my score.

Point pressing was essential on this one. I was getting through level 1 with over 16,000.

Dammit, wish I knew about it, could have been up near 60k ;) in the immortal words of (whoever) I couldabeenacontender :lol Didn't even cross my mind that you could point press on Jungle King :cry

Never mind, now it's on with the little monkey. DK Junior all the way!
