A funny thing happens when you play Congo Bongo, the new home game
from Sega. In fact, a lot of funny things happen.
You have to get to Congo, the mighty ape, before the jungle beasts get
to you. Dodge falling coconuts as you scale Monkey Mountain. Shake the
monkey from your back and chase Congo onto the lagoon screen. Then
cross the water on the backs of hippos, lily pads and hunter-eating fish.
And do jt all before Congo makes a monkey out of you.
But watch your step o n e slip and its off to hunter heaven.
Congo Bongo. Straight from the arcade and into your home.
It's more fun than a barrel of, well, monkeys.
