Geocache Description:

You are looking for a pill bottle about 5 feet up in a tree with a dead tree crossing. He was originally on the large island in the center of the Weston Reservoir but swam to shore and crawled up into the woods. He is not far from his listed coordinates. It's a great place to bring dogs! There is parking on Ash Street.

Jungle Hunt was originally called Jungle King but Jungle King's prototype was called Jungle Boy. In these earlier versions the playable character was a bare-chested man with a loincloth who resembled Tarzan. Taito was sued by the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate for copyright infringement for using the character's likeness. In Jungle Hunt, the following changes were made to the game: The character was replaced with a jungle explorer wearing a pith helmet and safari outfit. In the first scene, ropes replace the vines as the objects that the player has to swing on. The original Tarzan yell was removed from the game.

Console versions of Jungle Hunt were developed by General Computer of Cambridge, Massachusetts for Atari. The 2600 version was programmed by Mike Feinstein and John Allred while the 5200 version was programmed by Carlos Smith.
