The Jungle Book review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of The Jungle Book for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System developed by Eurocom and published by Virgin Interactive.
The NES and Super NES had enough great Disney games to fill an entire jungle. Ironically, this is not one of them. Released to several platforms, The Jungle Book was an early sign that Disney games would soon become a shadow of their former selves. The game is based on the classic 1967 film The Jungle Book, as players must get Mowgli through the jungle and back to the human village. This 2D platformer is surprisingly difficult, featuring lots of enemies and some seriously challenging level design. Sadly, it’s not challenging in a good way. Fortunately, The Jungle Book looks good, with quality sprites and decent environments. And for all its problems with gameplay and design, the music is certainly a high note. The Jungle Book features some of the best Disney songs in history, and so does this video game adaptation. The Jungle Book is a single-player game with great songs and lots of snakes.
This video review features video gameplay footage of The Jungle Book for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
