    Never had the chance to play this, because I didn`t had the bongos. But now finally [​IMG]

    But I still really hope Nintendo considers to NPC Geist with a little debugging and maybe a little updated graphics, because that was a really interesting game with technical flaws, which normally doesn`t suit Nintendo.

    So you drum with the wiimote and chuck?
    But how do you clap and stuff? And didn't this game had something, like you had to shout or something?

    As far as I know it is controlled via the buttons on the Wiimote with some motion controls like Galaxy. For example you tilt the Wiimote in a bobble to go left and right. But for normal movement you use the analog-stick...

    Jungle Beat was freaking awesome! Anyone know if you can control this with the bongos if you choose?

    Nintendo didn't develop Geist.

    They didn't develop Mario Power Tennis either.

    I agree with Geist, I've said it before that its a flawed classic that could be made better if ported to a slightly stronger console.

    Wow, you are right! I always thought that n-Space was a 2nd-Party-Developer like Retro or something. But Nintendo was just a publisher! So I guess the chances of this getting NPCed are very thin...

    Meh, semantics. Make it "n-Space has no affiliation with Nintendo" and it gets the same point across without giving anyone room to worthlessly nitpick.

    Well what the fuck. They add levels and then ruin the game's charm.

    What did they change in this version besides nixing the bongos?

    I picked up 2 sets of bongos on closeout new from ebgames for 5$ each. [​IMG] How many games supported them and what were they?

    There was only Donkey Kong nothing else supported them [​IMG]
    So who cares if now Bongos are supported or not the game makes anyway fun.

    Incorrect. Donkey Konga 1 and 2 were also compatible with them. Not just Jungle Beat. Anyway I can't imagine not playing w/o bongo's to be honest.
