Back of Box - Atari 2600/5200:
    You're on a jungle safari packed full of wild and zany adventures. Climb the cliffs to the top of Monkey Mountain as you try to reach the jungle's most mischievous gorilla. Don't get clobbered by the coconuts he'll throw your way. Watch out for the menacing monkeys. Beyond Monkey Mountain you'll come to Lazy Lake where you'll see raging rhinos and hollering hippos. Leap from lily pad to lily pad across the treacherous lake filled with ferocious man-eating fish and other jungle dangers, but be careful... one slip and it's safari heaven!

    * ONE OR TWO PLAYER JUNGLE FUN
    * ARCADE QUALITY 3-D COLOR GRAPHICS

Description from Intellivision catalog:
    A funny thing happens when you play Congo Bongo, the new home game from Sega. In fact, a lot of funny things happen.

    You have to get to Congo, the mighty ape, before the jungle beasts get to you. Dodge falling coconuts as you scale Monkey Mountain. Shake the monkey from your back and chase Congo onto the lagoon screen. Then cross the water on the backs of hippos, lily pads and hunter-eating fish. And do it all before Congo makes a monkey out of you.

    But watch your step - one slip and it's off to hunter heaven.

    Congo Bongo. Straight from the arcade and into your home. It's more fun than a barrel of, well, monkeys.
