Tarzan: Lord of the Jungle is a 1994 video game for the Game Boy and Game Gear video game systems.[2]


Players get to control Tarzan (based on the famous character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs for his novel Tarzan of the Apes) in six different missions set in Africa.[5]

These include curing the Great Ape's disease and saving his friends from the evil poachers.[5] These poachers want to capture the wildlife and place them in their zoos.[2] Weapons that can be utilized include: spears, knives, and arrows.[5] Pitfalls and obstacles are to be avoided in order to collect the mandatory quest item.[5] Under a strict time limit, players can swing on vines and swim vast bodies of water to cross various parts of stages.[5]
