Review: Tokyo Jungle Jap

Bat shit crazy Japanese game. You play an animal in a derelict Tokyo, where you hunt for food and survival. The story is lost on me due to the japanese text, but its a solid game. Combat is easy to learn hard to master,  Eating animals level you up to make you bigger, stronger and improve your stats. Random pickups are wrapped up in a present box with a bow on top!. Pickups vary from food to new clothes, yes, clothes to add to your animal to improve stats.

The game has a lot of depth and while unlocking animals is quite hard, it’s still enjoyable playing the game. Any game where you can watch a elephant fight a monkey while an alligator tries to jump in after killing a giraffe is always onto a winner.



  • Crazy Japanese game
  • as a dog you can hunt and kill a hippo!
  • elephants on roller skates!
  • deep unlocking system for animals
  • huge Tokyo playground to play in
  • a massive collection of animals to play as
  • easy controls and combat system


  • Graphics look very ps2
  • game can be very expensive either digital or physical
  • The unlocking of story mode missions is long and confusing
  • Checkpoints in story are inconsistent and can sometimes be really harsh

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
