Jungle Queen - Jungle King inspiration released for the ZX Spectrum


Are you still in isolation and want a fun ZX Spectrum game to play, then come and check out Gabriele Amore's latest AGD and AGDX engine based game called 'Jungle Queen'; a game that was released last weekend, which in itself is an inspiration to the classic game Jungle King. Also known as Jungle Hunt produced and released by Taito in 1982, the same year as Moon Patrol and the first video games to use parallax scrolling.


According to the Wikipedia for the Arcade version which also fits this new ZX Spectrum game but instead features a Queen instead of a King. The player controls an unnamed explorer, sporting red hair and safari suit, attempting to rescue her beloved from a tribe of cannibals by swinging from vine to vine, swimming a crocodile-infested river, and avoiding rolling rocks. A variant starring a pirate instead of an explorer was also released in the arcades as Pirate Pete.
