Hi Philip,

Definitely. I really think you should create an updated version of
Tarzan Junior. As has been said the game had a lot of good elements,
great game play, but it  fell short on some design aspects. The big
one is that it was written in Javascript which is crap for a game
development language, and if it were ported to C++ or something would
be a vast improvement. Replace the Dectalk with some human voice
overs, perhaps redo some of the acting, etc and you'd have a great
game. Otherwise it is still one of my favorites and it would be well
worth buying.
