Storyline- Disney's Tarzan
Orphaned in the jungle, Tarzan is rescued by Kala, a female gorilla, who discovers the baby
in a tree house high above the jungle floor. An immediate bond forms between the two when
Kala is forced to save Tarzan from the leopard, Sabor, a longtime enemy of the gorilla
family. The other apes look at the baby with uncertainty, and Kerchak, the ape's leader,
fears the baby will bring danger to his family. When Kala refuses to abandon the child to
a certain death, Kerchak allows her to keep the baby, but refuses to be a father to this

Tarzan thrives in the jungle, quickly becoming friends with a tomboy ape named Terk, and a
neurotic elephant named Tantor. As Tarzan watches all the creatures of the jungle, he
learns their skills and uses what he learns. Even so, Tarzan knows he is different from
the animals in his new family.

Determined to prove himself to Kerchak, Tarzan vows to become, "the best ape ever!" As
Tarzan grows into adulthood, his strength and agility allow him to move through the jungle
with ease. When Sabor attacks Kerchak, Tarzan kills the leopard, finally earning Kerchak's
respect and acceptance. Just when it seems that he has finally fit into the gorilla family,
gunshots announce the arrival of humans. With that one sound, Tarzan's world changes

Curious about these new strangers, Tarzan must find out more about them. He is quickly
introduced to Professor Porter, a noted scientific expert on gorillas, Professor Porter's
daughter Jane, and Clayton, their opportunistic jungle guide. Unimagined adventures await
Tarzan as his human acquaintances encounter the gorilla world he grew up in.

Tarzan's Friends
Terk- A feisty, wisecracking tomboy, Terk quickly adopts Tarzan as a little brother.
Terk teaches Tarzan the ways of the jungle; she is always there to help her hairless friend,
although she complains a little bit first.

Tantor- An elephant bundle of nerves and neuroses, Tantor's size does nothing to waylay
his numerous anxieties. However, when Tarzan is in trouble, Tantor will always
trumpet-charge to his friend's rescue.

Jane- A proper young Victorian woman, Jane eagerly embraces the excitement and danger of
the jungle. Jane discovers she can teach Tarzan the ways of Man, while Tarzan happily
guides Jan to the hidden wonders of his exotic world.

Professor Porter- As the world leading expert on gorillas, Professor Porter is eager to
observe them in the jungle. He is a good-natured man, full of enthusiasm, and easily
distracted. He is always watchful when it comes to his daughter Jane.

Kala- Tarzan's adoptive mother, Kala loves Tarzan unconditionally and teaches him that
family is more a matter of heart than of blood.

Kerchak- The respected patriarch of the gorilla family, Kerchak is fiercely devoted to the
apes in his care. Convinced that Tarzan will bring danger to his family, Kerchak refuses
to accept Tarzan. Kerchak acknowledges Tarzan's worthiness when Tarzan puts himself at
risk to save his gorilla family.

Tarzan's Enemies
Jungle Animals- The jungle is alive with animals. But be careful, although some of the
creatures are cute and fuzzy, they can still be hazardous to your health. Some animals are
even downright mean and will throw harmful fruit at Tarzan.

Clayton- An experienced hunter, Clayton guides Jane and Professor Porter though the jungle.
His natural instinct is to shoot first and explore later. Although Clayton appears to be
the ideal example of civilized man, Tarzan soon discovers who is the true savage.

Thugs- When the humans arrive in the jungle, new dangers face Tarzan. Watch out for
Clayton's thugs. They are out to hurt Tarzan and capture his gorilla family.

Certain plants and animals decrease Tarzan's strength so that he must find health to

Welcome to the Jungle- Orphaned, Tarzan must survive in the jungle. To do that, he has
many discoveries to make. Terk helps Tarzan a lot. Grab a Terk token and Tarzan's tomboy
friend is on the way to help him. Tarzan needs to be armed, so be on the lookout for a
knife pickup.

Going Ape- Tarzan knows some things now, having learned the ways of the jungle, and now he
sets out to discover more. Terk is still there to help but increasingly, Tarzan must use
his knowledge of the jungle to survive and grow. This level introduces Tarzan to using
vines as well as leap from them. Surprises await you in the jungle canopy.

The Elephant Hair Dare- Tarzan comes to play with Terk, but the other apes want nothing to
do with Tarzan. Terk gives Tarzan "The Elephant Hair Dare." Get an elephant hair and you
can be one of the gang. Tarzan heads deep into the jungle to find and elephant. What he
finds instead are large animals, tangles of vines, and the need to eat many bananas to stay
healthy, long enough to finish his quest.

Stampede- Tarzan grabs and elephant's tail to get the elusive hair, only to be spotted and
mistaken for a piranha. Watch out, Tarzan! The heard of elephants is stampeding. There
are lots of bananas and tokens to collect if Tarzan can keep from being trampled under the
rampaging elephants, bashed by trees, or running into the wandering rhinos. Will he get
home with the hair and become on of the gang?

Coming of Age- Tarzan, the boy, becomes a man of the jungle. There are huge cliffs to
climb, and a lot of tree surfing to do, so Tarzan must keep up his strength. Watch for
rewards and tokens in strange places. Remember to ground pound the jungle floor beneath
trees and on rotten branches that contain bonuses.

Sabor Attacks- Tarzan rescues Kerchak from Sabor, then has to search the jungle for his
enemy. Finding Sabor, Tarzan fights this ferocious leopard with a spear, to rid the jungle
of this predator.

Baboon Chase- Jane retrieves her sketches from the baby baboon by tricking him and it
angers the whole baboon troop. The chase is on.

Trashing the Camp- Come on, let's have some fun! Terk and friends trash the camp, break
into boxes using the O button, climb to reach great heights for their treasures, then
trampoline across the camp while making a big mess. Some boards look springy so Terk has
fun seeing what she can do with them.

Campsite Commotion- Tarzan stumbles into camp as Clayton's thugs are breaking it down.
While trying to find Jane somewhere in the camp, Tarzan must avoid the thugs.

Journey to the Treehouse- Kala feels she must tell Tarzan about his parents. She will
wait for Tarzan at the treehouse. Tarzan makes his way over rotten logs, though crocodile
and enemy infested to reach it. It might be a good time for Tarzan to keep off the jungle
floor and swing from the vines.

Rockin' the Boat- Around the deck, up onto the bow, across the rigging, in the stern and
along the boat's hull, Tarzan searches for a way off the boat. Worse, he has to do it with
the thugs themselves coming at him from all sides of the rolling deck, and avoiding sliding
boxes that could crush him.

Tarzan to the Rescue- Tarzan must get to the gorillas before Clayton takes them away.
There is no better friend to get him there than Tantor, but Tarzan has to get past a
rampaging rhino and Clayton's thugs, to rescue his gorilla family.

Conflict with Clayton- Rescuing the apes foiled Clayton's plan and he's now more determined
than ever to make Tarzan into a plaque for his trophy room. Take on Clayton, the great
hunter, and find out who's the real master of the game.

Tarzan's Jungle Hints
Look for highlight differences in the jungle coloring and have Tarzan pound the ground.
Bananas and tokens are hidden in strange places.

Watch for springboards of all kinds, jungle branches, loose boards, springy plants, the
backs of large animals, and then power jump.

Watch the counter in the leaf on the lower right corner of the screen to know how many
lives Tarzan has left.

On the "Rockin' the Boat" level, look for levers that open access to blocked off areas.

There are many paths on the "Journey to the Treehouse", but some are more profitable in
terms of bonuses than others. So search high and low and you will be sure to discover more
than you bargained for.

Vines are not just for swinging. Several vines have bonus items hidden along the tops of
the trees. Climb up to the tops of the vines and discover jungle tokens and health.

In the camp, trash some crates to find jungle tokens and other valuable items. You also
will want to hang out on the teeter-totter for a second, as the result can be uplifting.
