Another attempt at the arcade classic 'Jungle King', thankfully this time in code machine.
The game fails to do justice to the original not only graphically, and I know no copyrights were acquired so the game couldn't look the same, but also in its gameplay, which is awful.
The game progress is almost the same as 'Jungle King' with some corrections and modifications. In the second part e.g., you do not need to come to the surface to breathe, but in its whole its the same game. If they weren't sued it was just blind luck. Tarzan lost it's strength without it's bountiful hairdo just like Sansom did...
