Mowgli has to sneak, swing and snoop his way through the jungle. To do this he has to get the hang of incredibly tricky vines, neutralize venom balls, dodge coconut-throwing monkeys and fire off bananas (!) at any scorpion, vampire bat, or crazy ape that gets in his way. There also plenty of deadly pits to encounter too.
During the journey Mowgli meets Bagheera, Baloo, King Louie, the hypnotist snake Kaa, as well as the evil Shere Khan. The game offers 10 levels to play and 2 bonus rounds. Each level can be completed by collecting a sufficient number of gems found during his adventure. There are several other staff to collect, including fruits (for scoring) and other for restoring his health. It’s a real jungle out there!
The game is a real joy to play, and is one of the best action platforms released for most of the video-game consoles, even for the portable ones (Game Gear, Gameboy)!
The graphics offer some nice colorful jungle details and sprites move very smooth and fast. Scrolling is smooth too. All sprites are nicely animated (especially when jumping between platforms (trees etc).
The sound offers plenty of SFX along with some cute tunes including the Academy-Award nominated -The Bare Necessities- during gameplay.
