Joe's Versus The Atari 2600 Jungle Hunt with JuicyBubbaGunn Pt. 1

Jungle Hunt is side-scrolling arcade game produced and released by Taito in 1982.

It was initially released as Jungle King. Jungle Hunt is one of the first video games to use

Parallax scrolling.

The player controls an unnamed jungle explorer sporting a pith helmet and a safari suit. The

player attempts to rescue his girl from a tribe of hungry cannibals by swinging from vine to

vine, swimming a crocodile-infested river, jumping over or ducking beneath rolling rocks,

then releasing the girl before she is lowered into a boiling cauldron.

Home versions were released for the Apple II, Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Atari 8-bit family,

Commodore 64, ColecoVision, VIC-20, and IBM PC. The PC version was developed by Sierra On-

Line and is incompatible with anything except an original IBM PC/XT with a CGA video card.

In the Atari-ported versions the hero is named Sir Dudley, and the girl, married to Sir

Dudley, is Lady Penelope.
