October 2020 – Tarzan: Lord of the Jungle (1994)

What in the Heck is this?! It’s some weird Tarzan game nobody has ever heard of that apparently also had a port on the SNES. Scott Baker has some explaining to do:

Tarzan: Lord of the Jungle is, somehow, one of the most nostalgic games from my childhood. I say “somehow” because I remember the game being difficult, confusing, and frustrating. Yet still, the game managed to stick itself in my memory since 1994. I’m partially choosing this game based on its overly intense cover art of Tarzan flexing every muscle in his body as hard as he can. Although the title screen in-game gives us an entirely different portrayal of Tarzan than the box. I haven’t played this game in twenty-five years, so apologies in advance if it’s terrible. Maybe I should have picked Disney’s Tarzan instead.

This might be a rough one! It runs for about $10-$15 but as usual, feel free to emulate the Bejeezus out of it and tell us what you think!
