Based on the 1993 Danish animated film, "Jungledyret". The plot is about a rare jungle animal named Jack (aka, Hugo) who lives a happy life in the jungle of India with his monkey pals. However, a rich movie owner's ex-wife plans to get her hands on the poor creature. He suddenly escapes from the crazy actress to find a lot of dangerous hazards (including cats) around the city. With the help of Rita the Fox, he must get to a boat which will take him home.
Jungle Jack is a platform game. There are no weapons, but Jack can leap onto the hazard's head to avoid him/her/it (except the electricity coming from the wires in Level 3). The power-ups are Jack's favourite food, fruits. They give him more energy and boost up the score.
Jungle Jack is a game every platform lover should enjoy. Sadly, the game never enjoyed much commercial success and therefore was never sold outside of Scandinavia. This is sad because the game is beautiful, and you won't regret playing it.
In the beginning, you're shown an intro in which the sun rises over the jungle. The camera slides to the right, where we finally meet our little hero, Jungle Jack. When the cinematic is over, you realize that the game never changes from an animation to the "real game"; the graphics are the same! This is one of the good things about Jungle Jack: the whole game feels like a dream, and you never find an area which looks like any other part of the game; everything is unique.
The story behind the game is that you (Jack) are a VERY rare jungle animal which a rich man's daughter really wants to get her hands on. You're the cutest animal in the jungle, and surely also the most intelligent. One day you want to explore the jungle with your two friends (the monkeys). Sadly, you soon realize the jungle is a dangerous place, and the people who are after you won't give up! In the game, you visit several places, such as jungles and cities, and our little fellow even reaches a skating level together with a fox he falls in love with, Rita.
I give this game a big 5. It's rare to see such a beautiful game as Jungle Jack, and the entertainment is top-notch! You won't regret the time spent playing this game!
The game was in Danish originally, but with a bit of help from our fellow user Luchsen, we managed to translate the game. You shouldn't see any Danish text except during the intro: instead of "Jungle Jack" it says "Jungledyret Hugo." The game will ask for a password; just press "I" and the game should enter the intro soon after.
