Jess Ragan Posted December 30, 2002 Share Posted December 30, 2002 My latest 2600 hack is a conversion of Jungle King, the original version of Jungle Hunt that Taito was forced to change after the estate of Edgar Rice Burrows threatened a lawsuit. Well, after tweaking the 2600 version of Jungle Hunt, the game is once again the way the designers had intended it. I've not only changed the main character but the game's logo and score fonts as well. It's so close to the arcade original that the jungle hero's hair even changes color from round to round! This hack should be available on Atari Age in a couple of days. You won't be able to buy the game in cartridge form just yet, because I'm not quite finished with it... the lady you rescue at the end of the game still looks pretty ridiculous and I want to change her into something you might actually want to rescue. Also, I'd love to insert the arcade game's awesome soundtrack, but such a feat is beyond my abilities... I'd need Paul Slocum's assistance for this.
