It's Nuts in the Jungle with Buzz! Junior: Jungle Party

Outrageous monkey mayhem for up to four players

For immediate release
Press information

Perfect for cheeky kids with a wicked sense of humour

Watch out for the windy gorilla and the chest thumping Orang-utan


E3, Los Angeles, May 10 2006 - We all love Buzz! and the fastest finger on the button challenge - but quizzes are not for everyone. Welcome to the first kids' Buzz! title, courtesy of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, as Buzz! ventures deep into the Jungle with Buzz! Junior: Jungle Party, packed with a cast of cheeky monkeys, windy gorillas and baseball playing elephants.

Available exclusively on PlayStation®2 from November 06, Buzz! Junior: Jungle Party is the ideal experience for kids of all ages to dive in to. With an easy-to-use Buzzer in hand, go head-to-head against up to three of your mates or family to see if you have the skills you need to build a banana empire and be crowned King of the Jungle.

Choose your monkey character with care - each has a distinctly naughty personality - and then take part in one of up to 40 wild and wacky mini games deep in the jungle.

But the secret to success is not just having a laugh, as you find out if you have what it takes to demolish a Totem pole, beat out the craziest bongo beat with your Orang-utan drum instructor or base jump - clutching an anvil! And if you survive all that - not to mention being pelted with coconuts and eaten by lions - then it's 'farty' time as you sit back in the jungle Jacuzzi and celebrate with your friends and the windy gorilla - just watch out for the smelly bubbles!!

Play is as simple as peeling a banana and the laughs as cheesy as a centipedes shoes. Just choose your character, select the colour of your monkey, enter your name and you are ready for tropical action.

  • Multi-player mode: For two to four players the aim is to earn bananas by competing in individual games and tracking your progress on the monkey leader board.

Select short, medium, long or custom tournament and don't forget that in the world of slap-stick cartoon humour sometimes the loser has the best laugh! Whatever happens, don't forget to taunt your friends as they suffer the embarrassment of defeat.

  • Single-player mode: A simplified version of multiplayer, practice those skills and earn a score high enough to get you into the Buzz! Junior: Jungle Party Hall of Fame

With loads of localistion: English French, Italian, German, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, Russian, Greek and Polish! There's no excuse not to monkey around with Buzz! Junior: Jungle Party!!!
