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.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Updated with New Level, Enemies and Weapons

No matter how many times you put them down, zombies just won't stay dead. Activision has launched their latest update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies and this one is a doozy. The team has ported over the popular "Ascension" map from consoles and added enough goodies to keep you blasting away at the undead hordes for hours.

The new map is set in a Cold War-era cosmodrome overrun with zombies and teeming with traps. Even more dangerous than the typical enemies are zombie monkeys which can swoop in and steal your perks as they maul your face off. Just remember that these monkeys are evil and you should have no trouble pulling the trigger.

The good news is your arsenal is getting an upgrade, too, and now you can deal death with the Thunder Gun, Matroyshka dolls, and Gersh Device. Players who like to really get up close and personal will also enjoy the inclusion of the Sickle. It's the most fun you'll ever have defending Mother Russia from reanimated rotting corpses.

Mogo the Monkey in Operation Jungle Bungle Review

By Sinan Kubba on July 11th, 2011
Australian retailer Gametraders' debut iPhone game is a physics puzzler with potential but the first episode is far too short; this monkey needed more time to evolve.
