Un jeu de plateforme mettant en scène Mowgli, par le studio Eurocom (fermé) et Disney.

Disney The Jungle Book est un jeu de plateforme mettant en scène Mowgli - le petit d'homme, dans une jungle belle et dangereuse, avec de surcroit Shere Khan, le tigre mangeur d'hommes sur ses traces. Il devra se suspendre à des lianes incroyablement délicates, neutraliser des boules de venin, esquiver les noix de coco jettées par les singes et lancer des bananes sur tout les scorpions, chauve-souris ou singe fou qui se mettent en travers de son chemin.


Descendez au strict nécessaire de la vie ...

Jouez en tant que le petit d'homme, Mowgli, un orphelin élevé par une meute de loups dans la jungle. Aucun parent. Pas d'école. Pas de problème. La grande vie, hein ?
Sauf, qu'une rumeur court que Shere Khan, le tigre mangeur d'hommes est sur vos traces. Donc maintenant vous allez devoir vous faufiler, swinger et vous fondre dans la jungle, attraper le tigre par la queue et parvenir à la sécurité du village de l'homme.
Pour ce faire, vous allez devoir vous suspendre à des lianes incroyablement délicates, neutraliser des boules de venin, esquiver les noix de coco que vous jettent les singes et lancer des bananes sur tout les scorpions, chauve-souris ou singe fou qui se mettent en travers de votre chemin. Alors, mangez vos bananes et préparez-vous - c'est une jungle ici !

Le Livre de la jungle (ou Walt Disney's The Jungle Book) est un jeu vidéo de plate-forme de David Perry pour Virgin Interactive, sorti sur Mega Drive, Super Nintendo, DOS, Windows, Game Gear et NES en 1994, d'après le film Le Livre de la jungle de Disney.

Le style qui fera le succès de David Perry sur les consoles 16 bits est déjà reconnaissable (voir aussi Global Gladiators, Cool Spot, Earthworm Jim et Aladdin) : les critiques ont souligné que l'animation est très réussie, fine et en avance sur son temps (le rendu est plus proche d'un dessin animé que d'un jeu vidéo de cette époque), les graphismes sont soignés.

Système de jeu

Le joueur dirige Mowgli dans un jeu de plate forme 2D classique.

Description [en]

Get down to the bare necessities of life…
Play as the man-cub, Mowgli, an orphan raised by a pack of wolves in the jungle. No parents. No school. No problems. Great life, huh?
Except, there’s a rumour that Shere Khan, the man-eating tiger is coming after you. So now you’ve got to sneak, swing and swoop your way through the jungle, catch the tiger by the tail and reach the safety of the man-village.
To do this, you have to get the hang of incredibly tricky vines, neutralize venom balls, dodge coconut-throwing monkeys and fire off bananas at any scorpion, vampire bat or crazy ape that gets in your way. So eat your bananas and get ready – it’s a jungle out there!


Wikipedia:

The Jungle Book is a series of video games based on the 1967 Disney animated film The Jungle Book, primarily released in 1994. It was first released by Virgin Interactive in 1993 for the Sega Master System. Conversions for the Game Boy, NES (for which it was the last title released by a third-party developer prior to the console being discontinued[1]), Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, Sega Game Gear, Super NES, and PC followed in 1994, and a remake for the Game Boy Advance was released in 2003. While gameplay is the same on all versions, technological differences between the systems forced changes – in some case drastic – in level design, resulting in six fairly different versions of the 'same' game. This article is largely based upon the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis version.

Plot

The player controls Mowgli, a young boy who has been raised by wolves. Mowgli must leave his home in the jungle and go back to the human village because Shere Khan, a tiger, is now hunting him. Mowgli must fight jungle wildlife and ultimately Shere Khan himself to reach his village. During the journey he meets Bagheera, Baloo, King Louie, the hypnotist snake Kaa, as well as the evil Shere Khan.

Gameplay

The player controls a young Mowgli through various side-scrolling levels in a similar mold of Pitfall!. The Mowgli character must shoot or avoid enemies and negotiate platformed levels and enemies by running, jumping, climbing vines and using the various weapons and powerups available during the game. Mowgli starts the game with a banana projectile, but may collect invincibility masks, coconuts, double banana shots, and boomerang bananas during the game.

Levels are completed by collecting a sufficient number of gems, then finding a specific character placed in the level. The player scores points by obtaining gems along with having fruits and other items that contribute to the player’s in-game score.

Levels

This information is drawn from the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis/NES version. While the SNES title differs in stage layout, the story arc is identical. Stages are divided into chapters which, sequentially, comprise the plot. Each chapter opens with a description of the story at that point and the objective of the stage; some stages are completed by defeating a boss, while others have 'friendly' characters which the player is required to find after collecting sufficient gems.

The player has six minutes to complete each level. Depending on difficulty, the number of gems the player must collect to progress is either eight (easy), ten (medium), or twelve (hard), of a total of fifteen gems spread throughout the level.

Features

☑ Relive Mowgli’s classic adventure as you travel through over 10 levels – all weird, all wild and all totally different
☑ Encounter characters straight from the classic Disney movie, including Bagheera, Kaa, Shere Khan and many more!
☑ Jump, swing, climb and banana-throw your way through this adventure, collecting gems along the way
