Summary

Disney’s hugely popular Jungle Book franchise may look as though it’s reaches the end in the cinemas, but in the world of video games, it’s still very much alive. New for GameBoy Color is the next in a number Jungle Book releases, Mowgli’s Wild Adventure. Taking on the role of a classic 2D platformer, MWA is set to give retro fans a blast from the past. However, a game with such a childish story line is unlikely to reach these fans, and so the younger audience has been well targeted.

Throughout the game, you will inevitably take on the role of Mowgli, and as you progress, new abilities will be learnt, such as jumping, throwing and running. While they are simple abilities, the challenge of using them to the fullest will become increasingly difficult, as the levels become more tasking than ever. You will journey across five worlds in all, most of which many of you will be familiar with, based upon your knowledge of the story. In addition, there are also many of the original characters featured, including bear necessities Baloo, and the nasty Shere Khan. Each character will play a part as you move through the story.

One for the kids this one, and with some sunning presentation, gameplay, and sheer difficulty, Mowgli’s Wild Adventure is well worth a look.
