Much like George of the Jungle the movie, we suspect this would suddenly become massively entertaining if experienced under the influence of various intoxicants. As a platformer it’s not awful, but that’s probably the best that can be said about it. Still, despite its licensed nature and similarity to so many other genero-games, the Wii controls are actually decent enough. Often intuitive, they make pretty decent and unintrusive use of the remote and Nunchuk. Still, you wouldn’t need so much as a YouTube video promo to know what’s in this one: fight monkeys, jump, swing on vines - it’s harmless, but hardly worth bothering with.

DescriptionA game based on a remake of a show from the creator of Rocky and Bullwinkle, Jay Ward. Though Ward created his cartoons to provide cheap laughs in between cereal commercials, he could never have guessed it would go so far as to be an average cash-in game.
