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 Wii, with the bongo controls replaced by the Wii remote and nunchuck.
