You play Tarzan, who the witch doctor has turned into a monkey. To change back to his human form, you need to collect six ingredients - necklace, mask, plant, crossbones, a bottle, and gem - and place them in his cauldron. While you are doing this, you deal with various forms of wildlife; such as snakes, birds, lizards, and cannibals; by stoning them to death. Fruit can be picked up for bonus points. There are two types of skulls that are scattered through each level. One that gives you reverse controls, and one that causes loss of life. When Tarzan has obtained all six ingredients, you proceed onto the next level. In between these, you play a bonus level where the object is to collect a number of gems before time runs out.


Tarzan Goes Ape! ZX Spectrum I can clear the snakes off the nest platform by throwing coconuts. It's possible to fall of the right and the left of these platforms.
Tarzan Goes Ape! ZX Spectrum Made the mistake of collecting the necklace next. Snakes reappear when I hit the ground and have to be cleared again
Tarzan Goes Ape! ZX Spectrum I'm using a joystick to control him. It takes a bit of doing but eventually he will climb the rope
Tarzan Goes Ape! ZX Spectrum Cleared the snakes that re-appeared on this platform, now to clear the next. Tarzan is very responsive to the joystick and trying to turn him around often means he falls off
