Nintendo is definitely a pioneer of creative controllers. There is, needless to say, the Wii remote which revolutionised mainstream motion-based gaming, the N64 controller which finally enable you to play a casino game with three hands, and, the crme de la crme, Donkey Kong Jungle Beat‘s DK Bongos.
A lot of us still have some or two of the GameCube novelty items sitting in the rear of a closet somewhere, looking forward to their amount of time in the limelight once more. Bongo Souls came and went, however the jungle drums are beating once more. One designer from the overall game development YouTube channel Cobra Code has generated a fresh PC game round the DK Bongos. Now that’s a rhythm we are able to get right down to.
Created in Unreal Engine 5 during the period of 90 days, Beat Bull is something of a spiritual successor to Donkey Konga and Jungle Beat, together with your movements dictated by banging the left or right drum or clapping overhead.
In the aforementioned video, Stephen Knall reduces the process of creating the overall game from concept right around finished product. As the coding and design process looks seriously impressive, it really is nothing in comparison to how cool the ultimate play-through looks! Banging bongos while being truly a bull beating up bats? We’re in.
The very best part about all this is that Beat Bull is now able to be downloaded free of charge on Gamejolt on Itch.io, with each version supporting play by either the state DK Bongos or via regular keyboard controls although, with the drum function available, we can not imagine why you’ll desire to play it any way. Time and energy to raid those closets, or hit ebay.
To find out more concerning the game, have a look at Cobra Code’s official summary plus some screenshots below:
Manage an angry bull and navigate by way of a sky fortress by hitting your bongos with precise timing and clapping the hands to activate speed boosters or stun enemies. Engaging with large enemies begins a brawl where it is possible to swing your ax or block attacks utilizing the bongos clap sensor.
In a sentence that people never thought i would write, blow the pull out your bongos, because Jungle Beat gaming is back!
