Game Details

Loincloth wearing character swings through trees (avoiding monkeys hanging on vines), swims through a crocodile-infested river, dodging falling rocks, to jump past the witch doctors holding the maiden.

Reportedly changed to Jungle Hunt due to legal issues involving the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs (writer of Tarzan).
