Jungleboy is a result of cooperation between Kapelusznik Multimedia and In Images studio in Krakow. The production was commissioned by Play-publishing publishing house, which specializes in simple games addressed to young players.
The main protagonist of the game is the title boy, in which one can find similarities to the characters Mowglie (The Book of the Jungle) and Tarzan (a series of novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs). A young heros travels through dangerous locations in search of diamonds and magical statuettes.
The game is based on the mechanisms of classic 2D platformers. The player directs the hero’s actions by observing the action from the side, and the game consists mainly in jumping between platforms, avoiding traps and fighting enemies, including gorillas, snakes and hostile natives. The score depends on the number of diamonds and statuettes collected along the way.
Jungleboy is a product aimed directly at children. The creators made sure that the control system was extremely simple and intuitive. The game is also practically devoid of any elements of violence (even the fight against opponents is purely conventional in nature).
The InImages studio’s production is distinguished by the cartoon style of the visual setting. The vivid colours of the location and the sympathetic main character should appeal to the youngest viewers.
