Jungle Rumble is a rhythm based game where the player controls a tribe of monkeys. A rival tribe invades to steal bananas and the player needs to fend them off by throwing coconuts for instance. The player guides the monkey by tapping the screen to the sound of drums, similar to the Patapon games. This is done to move them around the leafs on the tree or to throw coconuts. There are also levels where the screen scrolls up at a fixed speed and the monkeys need to move up to survive.
