Gameplay[edit]

In the introduction we see Timon and Pumbaa chasing a bug. They could have get it but it scared them by exposing its thorns. A little later they go to a place where a waterfall exists. They enter with the help of a hippo who stops the stream with its behind. The game contains five mini-games that feature Timon, Pumbaa and other jungle animals from The Lion King. The object in this game is to have fun while Timon and Pumbaa entertain the player with glimpses of jungle living, especially when certain mini-games require the player to consume insects. The games are: Jungle Pinball (a pinball game where the board is filled with animals instead of bumpers), Burper (a shooter type game, using Pumbaa to belch gas), Hippo Hop (concept similar to Frogger), Bug Drop (based on Puyo Puyo), and Slingshooter (a slingshot game) accessible directly from the menu. The mini-games are endless where players try to top their high scores.[7] Bug Drop is not available in the SNES version.[8]
