Donkey Kong Jungle Beat (ドンキーコングジャングルビート) is a Nintendo
GameCube game featuring the gorilla Donkey
Kong and, although compatible with the standard controller, is
primarily played with the DK Bongos. It was the first video game to
receive an ESRB rating of E10+. Jungle Beat is unlike games
in the Donkey Konga series, which also
incorporate the DK Bongos. It is a single player 2D platformer
rather than a rhythm-keeping game. The gameplay relies on some
rhythmic elements, such as clapping at the right time to get all of
the bananas in an area, or incapacitate a boss, but the majority of
the congos' use comes from directing Donkey Kong's movement,
jumping and attacks. The game was later re-released for the
the bongo controls replaced by the Wii remote and nunchuck.
