    Completed Jungle - world 1/9. This game is great - it's cute, the monkey controls are great, I'm shaking the remote to pound the ground, and it feels just right. And I do adore those checkpoint pigs. Weeeh! They are so happy.

    Completed Beach, Ruins, and Cave (world 4/9). It's getting harder - I died a lot on the last of the Cave levels.

    Argh! Munchers! So many munchers!

    Completed Forest World (5/9).

    Completed Cliff World (6/9). What the hell? World 7 totally looks like Limbo. Silhouetted 2D, fog, big cog wheels, rotating slicers.

    Man, those flying levels really start to get annoying. I spent around 30 lives on Level 7-4: 'Gear Getaway'. The flying controls are not precise enough for the kind of navigation needed to complete these levels.

    Completed World 7/9. That chicken mech operator end boss is *superbly* animated. It is reminiscent of Muppet Show characters.

    Completed the game. Finally! That last world was extremely hard. The end boss hadn't been too bad, except I kept bumping into the side of it instead of landing on top of it, so I failed many times...

    I just bought this, to have it in my collection, and to play it a bit more for collectibles and the like. Maybe I will go for KONG letters in each level to unlock secret stages, and possibly unlock the Golden Temple.

    Visiting Jeppe N, we got through a couple of levels on his awesome projector setup.
