(DSiWare)

Game Profile

Leo the lion crashes his plane deep within the dark jungle.

He escapes in his parachute, but soon after landing he is hunted by a tribe of vicious Tubas, the native warrior tribe. Their dreaded leader Makatu wants to capture Leo - and only you can prevent this!

In Zoonies, Leo runs from Makatu and the Tubas as fast as he can. However, instead of controlling Leo (as in traditional platformers), you control the action around him. You have to keep Leo safe and clear the path in front of him.

The player beats enemies, solves intricate puzzles and avoids dangerous traps on his way through the jungle. Zoonies is a thrilling game for all audiences with plenty of innovative gameplay challenges. The game features creative physics, 3D real-time graphics, 4 different worlds, 20 levels, multiple paths and lots of replay value.
