Enter a World of Jungle Magic
Deep within India's Black Jungle, a scandalous crime has taken place. Someone has stolen the jeweled crown of King Louie, the orangutan who rules Monkey City. Now he's hoppin' mad and there will be no peace until his crown's returned. Mowgli and his friends are counting on you to help recover this sacred treasure and restore calm to the jungle world.
A world of wonder is yours to explore. From the moment the search begins, you're immersed in a world of intrigue, magic and excitement. IBM's extraordinary interactive technology makes this classic adventure come alive. The result is an enchanting journey that is sure to fascinate and captivate all those who take it.
Hurry! Mowgli and His Friends Need Your Help
Follow your instincts, but beware...danger lurks in the jungle. Solving this crime won't be easy. There are countless jungle paths to explore, each with hidden mysteries and obstacles, such as enemy soldiers, tricky puzzles, secret levers, poisonous snakes and rickety bridges. But don't worry, Mowgli's magical spirit guide will help you make it through. He'll contact you when the time is right.
Like magic, you'll be able to talk with the animals. Talk into the enclosed microphone and learn to speak like La-Tee the chimpanzee and Al-Tar the wolf. Listening to your animal friends, as well as Mowgli and Colonel Ilgwom, is key since they'll teach you the Language of the Jungle and help you make this magical journey. So stay alert, think carefully and above all else, be brave.
Special live-action footage brings the adventure to life. Live footage taken from the hit film and special scenes shot just for the game let you step right into the action. The exceptional production values makes your jungle pursuit feel like a real-life adventure.
Listen carefully and you'll hear the Call of the Wild. Mowgli and his animal friends are calling you. They need you to enter their magical jungle world now because the crown's gone, the culprits are getting away and the adventure can't begin without you.

"Your journey begins when Illy and La-Tee pull you out of quicksand and explain the particulars of how King Louie's crown has been stolen. As you proceed, all decisions are made by you: Illy offers no opinion at all, though La-Tee occasionally squeaks out guidance. You choose which path to take, but be warned that some of your decisions may lead to dead ends. Along the way, you will hone your instinct, which is measured on the instinct meter. Each time you see a paw in the undergrowth, click on it, and you will be rewarded with instinct points and a video clip from the recent live-action remake of this classic tale.
"To progress through the story, you will have to play one of many monkey games. You have two choices with these games: The first involves voice recognition (the game includes a microphone). With this option, you must mimic the sounds La-Tee makes in order to win. The second is to play the on-screen monkey board games, including Whack-a-Monk and Reverse the Monkey. These will challenge most youngsters.
"Designed for 5- to 9-year-olds, The Jungle Book is quite exciting. The stellar video and myriad paths are sure to keep your child enthralled for hours."
