In Congo Bongo, you play an explorer on an expedition in the lush jungles of the Congo. Bongo, a mischievous ape, sets your toes on fire while you're asleep. Enraged, you take time off from your jungle hunt to exact revenge on the prankster primate.
To reach Bongo -- and ultimately set his toes on fire -- you must make your way through jungle mazes, cliffs, and a river full of wild animals. At the top of each level, Bongo is waiting. When you complete the first two levels, he wakes up and scampers off before you can give him a hot foot.
Level one is a maze with a waterfall, requiring climbing and jumping skills. Bongo torments you by throwing coconuts. Chimps grapple and hang onto you, and although they won't kill you, they will slow you down and cause your jumps to be flat. There's a snake that you must jump in order to escape his bite.
Level two is a flat maze surrounded by water. One false step, and you go into the drink. There are several snakes in this level that try to prevent you from reaching Bongo.
The third level requires you to dodge charging rhinos by hopping into sinkholes, and the fourth level is a river ride where you must jump on the backs of hippos, fish, and lily pads to get to your simian tormentor. When you complete Level 4, you set Bongo's toes on fire as he sleeps. Then the game begins anew. ~ Anthony Baize, All Game Guide
