  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Jill of the Jungle was one of Epic Megagames' early games for MS-DOS. A side-scrolling platformer, the game consisted of three episodes: "Jill of the Jungle" (shareware), "Jill Goes Underground" and "Jill Saves the Prince" (Registered version only). The game's tagline was "No more 'save the princess' games!". The game had VGA graphics and Soundblaster support for effects and FM synthesis music.


Tropes present in this game:

  • Action Girl
  • Goddamn Bats: Quite a few, but mostly the demons in the 'Heck' level in the second game. One does appear in a later level but luckily only one. Quite a few can be found in the third game - sometimes they can be easily avoided, and sometimes, not so easily.
  • Hub Level: Side-scrolling in the first episode, an overhead map in episode 3.
  • Jungle Princess
  • Palette Swap: Jill's skimpy clothes have a different color in each episode, but are otherwise identical.
  • Serial Numbers Filed Off: The game was originally based on the bible, with the main character searching enlightenment. This can be seen by opening the third game in a hex editor.
    • Actually, it was co-developed with Onesimus: A Quest for Freedom, a game based on one of the shortest books of The Bible and published in Christian bookstores.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: The developers at the time, given the Take Thats included in the game.
  • Stripperiffic
  • Super Drowning Skills: Played straight and averted in an odd way. First off, touching the top of water kills Jill instantly. Waterfalls don't. However, it's averted due to the bizarre programming: it's possible for Jill to go underwater by falling through a waterfall and going underwater, provided she doesn't touch the tile that represents the top of the water.
  • Take That: Episode 1 has quite a few phrased as news bulletins aimed at a number of other contemporary games, such as Duke Nukem, Commander Keen, Pac-Man and Super Mario Bros..
  • What the Hell, Player?: Trying to leave the final level without rescuing the prince results in the game screaming at you to go back and do it right.

  "No, no, no, no, no, no, no! How about saving the prince before you leave? Like, is this game titled "Jill leaves Level 14 without saving the prince," or what??!?"
