    That is precisely what needs to be done. :)

    Nasty piece of work this game be. Made it to the last screen (don't remember the score) only to be hit by something thrown from the top left.

    Yeah, you gotta jump to avoid that :mrgreen: I think that guy appears on Jungle King starting on level 3, but he doesn't throw quite as far.

    I just move forward as the guy is about to throw. I've completed the first level a few times but I haven't had a chance to record anything yet. I'm home today with a cold so I'll get something in. I'm not very good at this game or Jungle Hunt but I do remember always plugging a quarter or two into these games whenever I saw them at an arcade. Fun game but frustrating because it seems so easy but it's not.

    Well, I was playing on the default difficulty of Easy. After changing to Normal, it took me about an hour of solid playing to get past the first level. Recorded and will be submitting a 14,410. I made it to the second rocks. May I suggest changing the settings to the default of Easy on this title would make for a better "marathon" setting?

    Hint: This game seems to change it's difficulty when you die. As in, it gets easier. I found the easiest way to get past level 1 was to die early. Then the rest of the level is much easier. No bird on the vine. No Marlins in the water and no big rocks on the rock jumping part. If your first death is later in the game, you will have to die twice before the difficulty changes to easy.

    When are you supposed to jump over the guys at the pot?
    I keep hitting the damn pot.

    When you have space to land. Or if she is low and the left pirate is close to the pot you can clear him and save her in one jump. I've been to busy trying to press them guys to play the game past the 2nd round. Sitting at 11k, not submitted.

    I'm not sure how others do it but if you watch my inp you can see how I get it done. It's all in the timing. I stand still until the little guy who is going to throw the knife shows up. Then I move forward to avoid the knife, wait a couple of more seconds and then jump the first spear guy into the safe spot in the middle. I then immediately make the jump from the middle to save the girl. In Jungle Hunt, I jump the second spear guy into a safe spot next to the pot before I save the girl but with Pirate Pete, I was never able to hit that spot and saving the girl on the second jump from the middle seems to work.
