Okay, Jungle Adventures 3 Android is an essential part of the platform cult because games today all try to add something new to the genre, or fuse it together with other genre and get something new. This game, as previous in the series, keeps it in the family and it’s a straight forward platform game, with running, jumping, and collecting fruits, just like in the ‘90s. Of course, there are a few modern concepts added in to make the experience more smooth for the player and visually more pleasant, but we can go ahead and call this one Traditional Platformer.
Development and reception
The entire series was made by Rendered Ideas, including Jungle Adventures 3 mobile game. If you go to the official site of this indie developer, you will also find previous entries, as well as games like Alpha Guns 2, Barren Lab, and others. These are all small, simple, but fun and rewarding indie games, easy to pick up but keeping the tradition alive. And, they are all quite successful.
On Google Play, Jungle Adventures 3 already has a 4.5 star rating, while previous installations were also above 4. Their other games like Adventures Story 2 and the previously mentioned Alpha Guns 1 & 2 all achieved significant commercial and critical success.
You wake up as a jungle boy, you are hungry, you go out to get some fruits. That’s it, the end! Quite straight forward… This game doesn’t pretend to be something it’s not, like an immersive adventure with a “unique” plot, that we’ve all heard and played gazillion times. Plain and simple, you go and collect fruits.
Again, Jungle Adventures 3 mobile game is to be praised for staying true to the platform genre. This doesn’t just mean running forward, side-scrolling the screen, and jumping on and over obstacles. This means, double jumps, jumping off of enemies, throwing rocks at them, finding secret passage ways, everything we know and love from the golden age of gaming, the end of ‘80s and the ‘90s. Of course, mechanics like grabbing onto vines on a wall or swinging from a tree vine are all here. Moving platforms, tricky situations, and even puzzling setups are all accounted for.
Not much more needs to be said about this title. If you like simple but effective games, easy-to-pick-up but providing you with hours of mastering gameplay, then this one is for you. A Traditional Platformer at its best, Jungle Adventures 3 is definitely a fine addition to the Google Play store, as its Android version is only out so far. Rendered Ideas always plays for iTunes App Store as well, so iOS is on the way.
