Congo Bongo what's gone wrongo. The game was merely a minor success in the arcades when it was launched by Sega eighteen months ago. And a minor hit is all it's likely to become on the 64. Pretty graphics and jolly jingles are no substitute for a basic lack of gameplay. (...) The game is really only suitable for children. Experienced games players need not apply.

After playing about a half-dozen games of Congo Bongo I decided I had had enough, and that the best thing I could say about the game was that it was on a floppy disk that also contained Galaxian and Boulder Dash. I'm glad to have played it again after all this time and getting through the first level was mildly amusing, but it's likely to be another 28 years before I play it again.
