Timon & Pumbaa's Jungle Games

Timon & Pumbaa's Jungle Games is a rather interesting game to talk about. This was released on PC and Super Nintendo. What is strange is that the Super Nintendo version came out in 1997 in the USA and in 1998 in Europe! This was during the time of the Nintendo 64 so this was a very late release so the game could be one of the rarer titles on the system, but no one really cares about it.

The Jungle Games

There is no plot here at all, absolutely zero! They could have tried; the back of the box and instructions are all you have to go on as to why Timon and Pumba have decided to host their very own version of the Olympics as the game has no cut scenes or anything telling you what the heck is going on.

Everything The Light Touches…. Looks Good

I have to say that Timon & Pumbaa's Jungle Games is a fine-looking game. It captures the style of The Lion King very well and both versions have a ton of color and bring the characters to life in a fun way. Disney games always looked like a million bucks on the Super Nintendo and this one here is no different. The animation is pretty good too and there is some amusing stuff going on with the way the animals act and react to things.

Disney Chip Tune Goodness

As well as looking good, Disney games on the SNES sound fantastic. The original Lion King game on SNES sounded amazing with great music and impressive voice samples. Timon & Pumbaa's Jungle Games is the same in that the soundtrack is very upbeat and fitting to the Lion King movie and the voices that are here are of a high quality too.

Four Or Five?

There are five games on the PC version and only four on the Super Nintendo. I have no idea why one was cut from the SNES, at a guess I would say it was so they could use a cheaper size of cartridge. Anyway, let's take a look at the games. Jungle Pinball is a Pinball game that is jungle-themed. Hippo Hop is like Frogger where you have to get from one side of the screen to the next. Burper is a shooter where you play as Pumba and shoot gas. Slingshooter is a game where you control a slingshot. The final game is called Bug Drop and that is a Puzzle game, but this one was cut from the SNES. It would have been better if they cut Slingshooter, to be honest.

There are different Lion King characters that you can play as, but the whole point of the game is to get a high score. There is no story mode or anything like that, you just play the four (or five) events over and over again.

7

I think that Timon & Pumbaa's Jungle Games is a better mini-game compilation than you would think. The mini-games that are here may be basic, but at least they all feel different and they play decently enough. The problem is, you will play this for about 30 minutes and you have seen everything that the game has to offer.

Pros:

  • The game looks fantastic
  • It features characters from The Lion King
  • The soundtrack is great and very high-quality
  • I liked how all of the games were very different from each other

Cons:

  • There is very little to this game
  • The SNES version is missing one of the games

Game Reviews

Supposedly aiming at a much more consumer-driven younger market, this game (with the two wisecracking sidekicks from Disney's Lion king) will feature four arcade- style forays: Burper, Hippo Hop, Sling-shotter, and Pinball.
