Jungle King (Japan)

0.36b14 [Zsolt Vasvari]

0.18 [Nicola Salmoria]


- The clone Pirate Pete is totally different to Jungle King.

- The character's hair color in Jungle King changes from stage to stage. This happens on the real PCB. We've verified the first set of stages only, but I'm fairly sure all colors in this game are accurately emulated. gregf / Smitdogg


- When playing 2 players, then both game is over, the screen FLIP (quickly) and displays "Game Over" right after it says "Player 2 Game over". Its like acting that it is in cocktail mode but only when the game is over. Tested on 37b16 thru 055. Junglek055gre Thenasty

Possible Bugs:

- Clone piratpet: First time you load the game, no attract mode sound, but after inserting a coin and playing a game, the attract mode sounds works. Also after playing a game, let the attract mode continues up to 5 cycles, you will notice this: On the second and fourth cycle, when the Pete touches the pirate at the end and gets killed, no sound for getting killed. Then on the 5th cycle, there will be no more attract mode sound and if you insert a coin and play a game, ALL THE SOUNDS ARE GONE (Coin Insert, Dying, Swinging, Swimming, Oxygen, Killing Shark, Diving, Jumping, Rock sounds, Snake sounds etc... ) except for the music background. junglek: When game first loads, attract mode has no sound, but after inserting a coin a playing a game, attract has sounds (except Tarzan Yell). jungleh: When game first loads, attract mode has no sound, but after inserting a coin a playing a game, attract has sounds (except the Beginning Music). taitosj097u1gre Thenasty
