    JILL OF THE JUNGLE
    Move over, Tarzan... Jill is here!

    She's beautiful. She's brave. She knows
    her way around a jungle. She is fighting the
    most difficult battle of her life. Can you help
    Jill fend off the horrendous jungle creatures
    and find the hidden mushroom grove?
    It will not be easy. You will encounter snakes,
    giant ants, crabs, ghosts, and more. Learn
    the art of using your knife and spinning blade.
    Find plenty of gems and keys to get through
    the gates and locked doors on every level.
    Fortunately, Jill came prepared for her
    mission. Not only can she run, jump, and
    skillfully use her weapons, but she can actually
    change into other life forms. Find the magical
    secret icons, and guide Jill through the many
    dangerous levels as she changes from a
    flaming bird to a leaping frog to a fish who can
    shoot bullets.
    With sixteen smooth-scrolling levels,
    including the Castle, Arg's Dungeon, and the
    Knight's Puzzle, Jill of the Jungle provides
    hours of thrills for the entire family.
