Tarzan Goes Ape is a typical Codemasters platform
game. You control Tarzan, who has been turned into an
Ape. Your mission is to turn back into a human - but
wasn't Tarzan more Ape than man anyway? Oh well, that's
you mission and you complete it by jumping through the
jungle, avoiding the beasts and collecting items that
will help you change back. It's not the greatest of
games, and the graphics are pretty poor. The animation
on the main character is quite shocking. It's ok to play
though, as it's quite simple and won't tax your brain
Here is Tarzan the
ape-man - literally!
And with a flash of
he's back to a
scraggy, long haired hippy! IT'S JEFF MINTER :-)
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
- Neil: I used an
infinite lives cheat.
- Vinny: I crazy
hacked the game and added 14 in-game features, one of
them allowing you to jump straight to the game ending
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
If you make it to the end you get to see a short ending
sequence. Tarzan is shown in ape form as a bolt of
lightning strikes his head. He then turns back to his
human form and a message appears above him reading 'CONGRATULATIONS.
THE CURSE IS BROKEN!' The game then ends.
- Andrew Fisher:
Him Tarzan. Me player. Ending so-so.
- Andy Vaisey:
Well, it's an ending at least. Not much of one, but at
least there *is* one.
I really like the 2x2 char font in the handwriting
FINAL SAY: It's not amazing, but it will do.
