Gremlin's excellent conversion of EA's console game, follow-up to the popular shoot 'em up Desert Strike. Jungle Strike is basically the same game as its predecessor – just set in a different scenario. In Jungle Strike you're mainly controlling the prototype helicopter "Comanche". In some missions, you can also use a hovercraft, a motorbike, or an F117 fighter. The controls in this shoot 'em up are very easy and straightforward. As in most arcade shooters, you must collect ammo, armor and fuel while fighting land-, sea-, and air-based enemies. In a nod to hard-core flight sims, all missions contain several sub-objectives, which have to be fullfilled in a given order. Most missions are set in either a jungle or city area.

With a good combination of arcade and sim elements, Jungle Strike is highly recommended for fans of the genre. If you like Safari's games (e.g. Seek & Destroy) but wish they were more sim-oriented in terms of having mission objectives and depletable fuel, Desert Strike is the answer. One caveat, though: to get this game to work on modern computers, you will have to pray to the holy computer heavens. If you prayed hard enough, the game might run. At least I got it to run after praying 12 hours or so. Starting it a hundred times in succession or fiddling around with memory configurations might also help at times ;) The fun is well worth it, however. Thumbs up!
