Let's Go Jungle!: Lost on the Island of Spice is a shooting gallery game, which mutant animals (mainly insects) approach the players from the front and players are required to shoot them with a gun. In points of the game, the player must perform special tasks such as moving the gun in a direction, tapping buttons quickly, or tapping the buttons at the right time.
The game features giant animals as enemies. It features mounted turret gun controllers, similar to Sega's previous gun title The Ocean Hunter.
Similar to The House of the Dead 4 Special, the games co-op gives a compatibility rating based on how well the two players work together. Enemies include various bugs, spiders, piranhas and frogs. The font style of the texts used throughout the game is based on the Thai alphabet.
Ben and Norah, whose relationship is floundering, tour an island in Asia. However, they find that mutant giant animals are wreaking havoc, and they are desperate to escape.
In the course of their adventure, Ben and Norah learn the story behind the island. According to a local boy of the island and a helicopter pilot, an environmental NGO called "Green Leaves", came to the island after it was devastated by war. Following the motto of "bring back the green", scientists of "Green Leaves" discovered a species of mushroom that possessed extraordinary biological regenerative properties. The scientists extracted and refined the mushrooms' essence, creating a powerful chemical extract that could accelerate biological growth. In cooperation with the island's natives, "Green Leaves" used the chemical extract to restore the island's fauna and flora within five years. However, it was later discovered that the extract's properties were too powerful, resulting in giant-sized animals, insects, and plants that have the capacity to harm humans. "Green Leaves" and many of the island's natives evacuated the island when events grew uncontrollable, although a number of natives decided to remain behind.
After finding the rescue helicopter, the two must battle with a mutated butterfly, and fall out of the helicopter during the fight. The two hang on to a rope ladder, and due to their guns falling to the ocean, they must use a slingshot to deliver the final blow. Depending on if the player(s) hit the creature or not, the couple will either make their relationship stronger and leave the island, or break up and escape, only to have their pilot infected with a mushroom.
