Advertising Blurbs – Game Boy Color:
    Game Boy Color good. Fire ants bad.

    Timed perfectly to launch with the release of the movie, Disney's Tarzan for Game Boy Color is a vine-swinging platform adventure for primates of all ages.

    In the one-player adventure mode, gamers must guide Tarzan through 20 coloful jungle environments on a quest to collect bananas. The jungle is full of snakes, crocodiles and other species not on pleasant terms with primates, which throws a monkey wrench in Tarzan's plans.

    Loosely following the plot of the animated film, players will watch Tarzan grow from a little boy into a young man throughout the game. Other playable characters like Tarzan's ape friend Terk and the lovely Jane make frequent cameos during the adventure.

    Thanks to colorful backgrounds and realistic character animations, the visuals in Disney's Tarzan are remarkably good. You'll recognize the opening animation sequence from the trailer for the movie, which is a great example of the high-quality graphics possible on Game Boy Color.

    Even though the enemies are ultra-aggressive and difficult to avoid, overall the play control is refined and responsive.

    The one-player adventure mode is rich enough to stand on its own, but Activision has included two bonus modes of play called Hide 'N' Seek and Paint 'N' Print. Hide 'N' Seek is a two-player game where one player hides Tarzan somewhere in the jungle, and then passes the Game Boy Color to a friend who tries to find him.

    Paint 'N' Print mode allows players to create their own Tarzan artwork, and then use the Game Boy Printer accessory to turn their art into stickers.

    Disney's Tarzan takes full advantage of Game Boy Color's capabilities, and is not backwards compatible with monochromatic Game Boy units.
