Lost in the Jungle is a silly little adventure, a coffeebreak survival game that plays best on a smartphone. It’s based on the 8-bit prototype of the same name I wrote for a game jam.

See inside for instructions and credits. The average game takes about five minutes, and difficulty errs on the side of easy. You can and will lose however: Lost in the Jungle doesn’t play itself! In particular, pay attention to the various messages indicating changes in your character’s condition, because your strategy depends on knowing where you stand.
