PAX East 2014 - Get Ready to Feel the Rhythm with Jungle Rumble

Posted by Rob Rich on April 14th, 2014

It’s been a long time coming, but Disco Pixel’s Jungle Rumble is almost upon us!

Jungle Rumble is very much a rhythm game. It’s also kind of a real time strategy game. It’s being described as “Patapon meets Advance Wars” and I have to say it doesn’t seem too far from the truth. Controlling your monkey (or squads of monkeys) is simply a matter of tapping your commands in time with the beat. Move, run, toss coconuts, that sort of thing. The goal was to make an iOS rhythm game that allows the player to make decisions rather than simply trying to stick to a specific script or pattern.

I have to admit Jungle Rumble feels pretty good. It doesn’t necessarily look like it from the screen shots but it really does call to mind games like Patapon in a very pleasant way. I had a little trouble keeping the rhythm at times but I’m fairly certain that had more to do with a noisy show floor than anything. Still, I’m interested in seeing how it plays in a much quieter setting.

Jungle Rumble should be releasing within the next couple of weeks (probably). I didn’t get a set number for the price, but it’s definitely going to be a premium game because the folks at Disco Pixel “don’t want to monkey around with micro-transactions.” Yeah.

Indie Game Jungle Rumble to Arrive on iOS Devices in April, Preview Available for PAX East Attendees

Posted by Tre Lawrence on February 26th, 2014

Disco Pixel has announced that its new entry, Jungle Rumble, will be available in the App Store to download in late April 2014. For those that can't wait and will be attending the PAX East Indie Showcase in Boston, there will be a sneak peak available.

Jungle Rumble looks to be an interesting, drumbeat-accompanied game that has bananas as the cause of strife. It looks whimsical, and relatively easy to understand.

Jungle Rumble is a simple idea, tied into a major reality TV show, but it proves to implement Endless Running quite well.
