Jungle Speed (WiiWare)

Game Profile

Jungle Speed is a lightning-fast card game for the entire family, where quick reflexes and a keen eye will put you on top. Flip your cards, watch your opponents and grab the totem at the right moment to win the game. Just when you think you've got it down, a new card can temporarily change the rules and keep you on the edge. Play starts when the first person flips a card. Moving around the table, symbols are revealed until two of the exposed cards match. Players with matching cards must then scramble to grasp the totem in the middle of the table; the loser gets the winner's cards and anything in the pot. With paws flying, be the first person to get rid of all your cards and win the game.

It's another catch-up week for Europe, with one game the US has had forever and a game they got about two months ago.

Family Table Tennis came out two weeks after WiiWare's launch in the US, so they've almost had it for an entire year! It's the true first game in the "Family" series, but like the rest it's not really spectacular in any way...

Hold on to your seats, guys – because today’s exciting WiiWare releases have just been confirmed!

First up we have Planet Pachinko, which might sound like a simulation of the popular Japanese gambling machine but is in fact a zany shooter where you assume the role of a robot looking for its puppy. Aww. At 500 points this could be quite appealing, and the recent interview we did with Allied..

Sounds good, but only if it's cheap, because it likely won't entertain for long.

I really love the original game, it's pretty hectic and fun to play with friends. I don't think it will really work as a game though...

I wholeheartedly welcome this game to the WiiWare service. Let's hope more Board Games are brought to WiiWare!!

I hope the reviewer keeps an open mind about the game.
Pricing makes sense when you consider the price of the Board Game itself but if it were 800, I'd get it in a snap.

Wow!! The original game is the best game ever! I used to play it every day when I was in school!!!
I can not wait to try it on the Wii!!



KnucklesSonic8 said:

Yep, they thought very highly of it as did other sources.

@lujo: I'm glad you enjoyed it so much! I've always wanted to try the Board game, myself. The WiiWare version is a lot of fun.

I got this game and it’s a lot of fun to play with the entire family.
If you have family and friends to play with then you gotta get this game.
If you don't then skip this game single player is OK but gets boring rather fast. This is mostly a multi-player game.

I maintain the belief that this game would be in the top five best Wiiware games if they had included one single thing: Online. I probably would never stop playing...
