Thick Jungle, or Jungle River in PAL regions and Japan (ジャングルリバー), is a level in Ape Escape and Ape Escape: On the Loose. The first that occurs in the Cenozoic era (which is still our era, and all future levels take place in increasingly recent ages within the Cenozoic Era). This is also the fourth level of the whole game.

Description[]

A mysterious jungle with many new cool enemies. A big part of this jungle is made up of dangerous rivers.

Walkthrough[]

  • Specter Coin AE1 A Specter Coin can be found if you go to the right just as you enter the first boat section.
  • Specter Coin AE1 A second Specter Coin is visible to the left in the second boat section and can be reached by going straight and then left to loop back around to it.
  • Specter Coin AE1 A third Specter Coin is located on the boxy wooden archway that leads to the UFO monkey from the start of the level. To obtain it you must use the Sky Flyer gadget and fly up to it from the ledge to the left of it.
  • Specter Coin AE1 A fourth Specter Coin can be found in the area with the chasm and bouncy mushroom platform. You will need the Sky Flyer to clear the gap. Continue on past the vines to the cliff, and climb down the side of it to find a monkey cooking food over a campfire. The Specter coin is floating above it.

Strategy[]

The Sky Flyer is required to cross a chasm.

Trivia[]

  • This level introduces black pants monkeys.
  • This is the first level in the game to have a monkey who flies a UFO.
  • The monkeys Nasus, Elehcim, and Selur from the NTSC-U/C version of Ape Escape are the words "Susan Michele Rules" spelled backwards. Susan Michele was a producer at Sony Computer Entertainment America, and got to work on Ape Escape as well as provide additional voices[2].
  • While Ape Escape: On the Loose refers to the giant creature as an electric catfish[3], the original game only calls it a strange fish[4][5].
  • In the original Ape Escape, the monkey at the campfire is cooking fish[6]. In Ape Escape: On the Loose, he's cooking bananas[7].
