Jambo Safari, a Sega AM3 release that has all the toughness, difficulty, and unforgiveness of having to research wildlife like a real-life researcher would. You’re doing your researching on a jeep and armed with some equipment that should help you during your quest to research wildlife. It’s basically close to experiencing the harshness of wildlife research without having to shell out $20,000 US to visit Africa and do a lot of research amongst wildlife animals.

As the theme suggests, you’re a super-daring researcher in a quest to research the remaining wildlife  »characters » at the wilderness of Africa. You will be doing your  »wildlife sighting » via the binoculars. Once you see the wildlife that you want to catch and research, then proceed to the chase. You have a few techniques that I won’t mention that will help change the outcome for the wildlife catching. You will need to master those techniques in order to catch the wildlife in a hurry. Once you get close to the wildlife, be sure that you catch them and get close to them QUICK before it escapes. Once successful, continue onto your toughest job ever.

The controls are simple and are easy to get used to (although the special techniques that I will not mention to you takes a lot of time to master). You have a steering wheel that steers your car left and right (depending on how you  »twist » the wheel, treat the steering wheel like you would with real-life cars) and moves the binoculars left and right as well. You also have a gas pedal with potentiometers to control the feed of the gas in your vehicle used for wildlife research. You also have a brake mechanism that performs all the braking functions of your jeep.
