Jill of the Jungle is a platform adventure game where you play Jill, queen of the jungle. This game is the first of a trilogy. Like other game developed by Tim Sweeney, there isn't much of a story, but the game remains interesting due to the mechanics and puzzles. Jill has the ability to run, jump, climb, and throw weapons, as well as the ability to transform into animals by touching magical statues. Each animal has its own special abilities.

Jill of the Jungle: The Complete Trilogy (DOS) redirects here. It comes bundled with Jill of the Jungle (DOS), Jill Goes Underground (DOS) and Jill Saves The Prince (DOS).

Music

Dan Froelich composed the music of Jill of the Jungle in AdLib Visual Composer and then used a ROL to CMF converter to change the music into the format used by the game engine. The music quality is high for an early 1990s DOS game.
