Author's comments and explanations:
Based on the famous animated movie, Walt Disney's The Jungle Book is a platform game where you control Mowgli, the boy who was raised by wild animals deep in the jungles. Your goal is to find the human village so you may you join your kin once again.

Mowgli is an athletic individual, and can jump, run, swing on vines or climb them without any problems. Most of the animals he comes upon, however, are inexplicably hostile, so he must defend himself with a variety of thrown weapons, such as bananas and boomerangs.

To complete each level, Mowgli must collect a number of gems (how many - it depends on the difficulty levels) within a time limit.

I'm glad that we have to play on hardest difficulty on this site, choosing which 12 out of 15 gems to collect is a lot easier than 10 or 8 gems. The route selection was still the most time consuming part of this run. Lag played also a role in some levels but it wasn't too bad. New tricks found just before finishing the game made me restart almost from the beginning, twice! So, the frame count should be at least two times higher but isn't because I wanted to save some time with hex-editing.

Movie features:


3:18 - It's faster to dive into river than catch fuits Baloo begins to throw
4:51 - Upper monkeys take damage before they even appear
5:34 - I get one lag frame dropping the monkey but it's more fun


00FF7FF5 - Kaa, Monkey 1, Shere Khan
00FF80A9 - Monkey 2
00FF804F - Monkey 3
00FF8103 - King Louie

mmbossman: This looks like a dull game to play, but it makes a very nice TAS with great platforming action. A short and fun watch; accepting.

Flygon: Encoding, this will take a while, the game isn't encoding friendly at all.

Flygon: I am passing this encode to someone else for now, I am having major issues trying to encode this and Jones at once.

Flygon: Indiana is out of the way, encoding this now.
