King of the Jungle Pipe Dream Interactive (Game Boy Color)
is a shooter game developed by King of the Jungle (a division of Unique Development Studios) and published by Hasbro Interactive for the PlayStation, PC and a separate version of the Game Boy Color.
Galaga: Destination Earth PlayStation and PC
Only nine stages, which makes the game fairly short.
Basic shooting techniques.
No secondary functions for the blaster that your ship is equipped with.
Too much going on at once, and when that happens the game lags
a lot. Your ship often blinds you to head-on attacks.
Only three continues, and if they are used up you start all over again. The lack of a save feature doesn't help ether.
Ugly polygon graphics and texture flickering, even for a fairly late PS1 title.
No multiplayer mode which even the worse Game Boy Color version had. Game Boy Color
Only one mode featured in the game.
No bonus stages, which the original
Galaga had. Terrible power-ups.
Repetitive sound effects and music.
Ugly sprites and graphics, even by GBC standards.
Ridiculously simple gameplay.
The Only Redeeming Quality
The soundtrack is great, courtesy of Jolyon Myers. It even has a reorchestration of the Galaga jingle.
