When you've known, loved and completed an original game it's always a bit of a risk to try a re-release, but we thought that Jungle Beat would probably make a good port onto the motion controllers on the Wii. So when my son asked for it as a birthday present we bought it for him, and he's been attached to the Wii ever since it arrived!

The game is a simple platformer, and at first glance it hasn't changed much at all from Donkey Kong Jungle Beat Gamecube. The levels are the same, with the addition of one or two extra levels at the end, apparently, but we haven't unlocked those yet.

Five years ago when this game was first released, we'd played our way through the Gamecube Donkey Konga bongo drum games, and were intrigued to know how a platform game could possibly work using a bongo drum controller, which only really has three options - left drum, right drum, and clap/tap.

The game is essentially a simple scrolling platform, with the lovable DK as the main character. In true Nintendo fun style, you run through the levels using the left and right drum pads to control direction, and clapping for 'action', which can be anything from hitting/kicking enemies to activating switches or bringing little helper monkeys to your aid. The game is compatible with the standard controller, but isn't half as much fun to play without the drums.
