Jungle Hunt

Jungle Hunt is a one- or two-player side-scrolling arcade platform gameproduced and released by Taito in 1982. It was initially released as Jungle King. The player controls a jungle explorer who sports a pith helmet and a safari suit. The player attempts to rescue his girl from a tribe of hungry cannibals. To do this, he must swing from vine to vine, survive a crocodile-infested river, jump or duck falling rocks rolling downhill, and release the girl before she is lowered into a boiling cauldron.

Jungle Hunt is one of the first video games to use parallax scrolling, a technique in which objects closer to the foreground move further than those closer to the background to create more realistic graphics.
