Hmmm...
To do:
Try to get cheat codes, debug menu items to work.

A game based off the 2007 reboot of George of the Jungle, packed with terrible platforming mechanics and probably the worst opening cinematic in history.

Uncompiled Source Code

Many of the game's scripts can be edited and viewed in plain text. There are debug versions of certain scripts as well.

Leftovers from Previous Games

There are some leftovers from Papaya's previous projects.

  • ai_test.ds contains file paths containing "PRJ_LarryBoy", which is referring to LarryBoy and the Bad Apple.
  • wiibals.ds contains file paths containing "PRJ_Disney", which is likely one of the Disney games produced by Papaya Studio.
  • wiistrus.txt, which contains all text in the game, has lots of leftover strings from LarryBoy's STR_US.TXT:

Undocumented Cheat Codes

A few undocumented cheat codes can be found in the game scripts. They seem to be for debug purposes.

Code Works Description
skipit Yes Skips the current level.
voodoo Yes Gives the player an extra life.
lll No Does not work in base game and hasn't successfully been activated with modifications. Switching the script wiibals.ds with its debug variant (wiibalsd.ds) makes the game play the cheat success sound when the code is inputted, but no changes can be observed. The code seems to hint at it unlocking all levels.

Debug Menu Options

Debug menu options can be made to appear by swapping wiibals.ds with its debug variant (wiibalsd.ds). Neither of them seem to work, however.

Main Menu

George of the Jungle Wii DEBUG-MAIN.png

"Select World (DBG)" is added to the main menu. Likely an additional level select of some sort. Selecting it crashes the game.

Pause Menu

"Quit Game (DBG)" is added to the main menu. It may have been to exit the game completely. Selecting it crashes the game.
