About The Game

Jungler is an arcade video game where the player controls a snake-like ship moving around a number of mazes chasing 3 similar computer controlled ships. Being hit by bullets reduces the length of the ships. Ships are destroyed either when their length is reduced to zero or when they collide with a longer ship.

Trivia

Released in December 1981.

Also licensed to Stern for US manufacture and distribution (03/1982).

Joe Startz holds the official record for this game with 180,720 points.

Scoring

  • Running over enemy : 80-640 points; 80 points per segment.
  • Shooting enemy : 60 points for segment, 500 points for head.
  • Fruit : 500 points plus segment added.

Tips and tricks

  • Don't get in front of red worms if you can avoid it. Yellow worms can be gotten in front of with caution, and green worms should be no problem (although you'd better watch out for the shooters).
  • To shrink the opponents' worm down, shoot the tail.
