Welcome to a sister article to In The Games Corner that is about computer games but with a different spin. I have been playing computer games from a very young age and I find that some games when I think of them are attached to very strong memories. So, I thought it would be fun to share memories that I have attached to some of these games as there are a few. I wanted to call this feature Memory Card because a lot of my memories that i have strongly are around the Playstation 1 and there will be a few around that particular card. Today we take a look at Donkey Kong Jungle Beat.
At university, my guy mate had a Wii, it was something I had not really played before I went became friends with them as I knew no-one who had one. These were the sort of guys that had every gadget for their game stations which was great as there was always something to play. One of the games that they had that I particularly enjoyed playing was Donkey Kong Jungle Beat.
The game came with these electronic Bongos that you plugged into the system and then it is used to enjoy the game – it was sort of like a rhythm game where you had to hit the bongo in time to the beats on the screen. It was a fun game to play but what made it even more fun was when you had lots of people there with you playing it at the same time or observing.
One of my friends has a really bad rhythm so when they went to play the game they just couldn’t keep up with the beat and would fail miserably. it was really fun to watch and it was always funny how frustrated he got with the game. It was also one of those games that after a wile the novelty wore off but it was a fun memory to talk about.
