    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

    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    9,600

    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!
