George of the Jungle and the Search for the Secret review

Heading full speed for that tree

Pros

  • Stylish visuals
  • Mercifully short
  • Retro platforming

Cons

  • Annoying music
  • Dull minigames
  • Horrid level design

This is based on the Cartoon Network animation of the same name. Incessant music irritates throughout although the colourful graphics at least evoke the TV show it’s based on. However, the platforming is so dated it’s practically prehistoric, the level design is uniformly poor and the minigames are, without exception, excruciatingly dull. A lazy tie-in that’ll no doubt shift a few copies off the back of the name.
