Description

In this fast and frantic side-scrolling action game you play as the pink-haired, high-jumping jungle boy Tombi. In order to retrieve your lucky golden bracelet from the evil clutches of demonic pigs you'll need to fight hard, duck, climb, explore, and race through a variety of quests.

Use your mace or your wood and stone boomerangs to do battle with dastardly pigs and creeping spiders. Keep a clear head though, as you'll need to solve a number of puzzles, which include rescuing trapped villagers, uncovering lost items hidden in deep forests, or saving a poor, stranded puppy. Secrets and adventure points allow access to optional events.
