I'm sure I can't be the only one who feels like Microgaming was having a bit of a laugh when they came up with this one - it's almost a carbon copy of NetEnt's long time popular slot "Gonzo's Quest", even the subtitles are bizarrely similar and I honestly can't really work out why Microgaming would choose to do this... perhaps revenge for Reel Steel or another NetEnt derivative of their work? Whatever the case, I don't ever remember NetEnt copying a Microgaming slot this blatantly and I wouldn't be surprised if the lawyers got involved at some stage over this one.

There are a couple of differences - 25 paylines in this game compared to 20 in Gonzo's, and one very nice change is the fact that the free spin trigger symbols are actually scatters in this game so there's no chance of getting three onscreen but still not triggering the bonus as has happened to me more times than I care to recall in NetEnt's game. Frustratingly though the scatters still only appear on the first three reels, so it really is very much a token change.

The advertised RTP for this game is 96.31% whereas Gonzo's is slightly lower at 96%, although confusingly the paytable is slightly worse in this game with the top five of a kind returning 120x your stake rather than 125x in Gonzo's quest. Despite this the maximum possible win from a single spin is reasonably high at 3680x making this reasonably high variance although it really doesn't feel like it in general play and of course such a win is only possible during the free spins.
I've never been a huge fan of Gonzo's Quest in all honesty and I think Microgaming could have made this game a lot better if they had tried. I was also surprised when I compared the games side by side to note that the animation seems quite choppy in this game - there are noticably fewer frames to the reel animations than in Gonzo's and although I think this game looks higher quality when it's standing still it definitely suffers when the reels are in motion. I think this game just edges ahead because of the proper scatters, but there really is very little in it.

Have you ever played Jungle Jim before? No, no, not played him, played his game, his oldies games, I mean. Well, I have and I'm pretty sure you have too. Not that bad those games, but the graphics can be a bit lame, but it's okay for being oldies games. Time moves fast, time waits for no man, not even for Jungle Jim. Many years have since passed, and now our jungle hero comes back to life, looking all new and all fresh, and going hunting for that elusive El Dorado treasure. Hmm. I thought only that helmet-in-his-eyes Spaniard explorer and that fatty Tribal Chief went hunting for it, but now, we have Jungle Jim too. Ah well, 2 or 3 years too late, but never mind.

Playing Jungle Jim El Dorado is no different from playing Gonzo's Quest or Rook's Revenge. They share the same game concept and design, each with their own icons and symbols, but our Jim here prefers something a little different from the other two, so voila, no grid boxes and less of the various masks. Hehehe. Being a new game from Microgaming, the graphics are up to contemporary standards, not astonishing or vibrant enough, but pleasing to the eye nonetheless. The first other difference that I noticed with Jim is that...he isn't as adventurous, nor cheeky, nor playful, as like our Spaniard friend, who can even do the 'moon walk' dance in the jungle. Hmm. For Jim, he is contented with just looking and resting one arm on his trusty spade. I really wonder how he manages to keep that big spade in his tiny little bag though. Must be a technologically advance cybernetic spade that. Hahaha.

Even for a 'Rolling Reels' game like this one, the Wild symbol does not have to be dumb, but it is. No paying for itself, no doubling of wins, no expanding, just substituting. 3 Scatters pay 5x the total bet and awards 10 free spins with a dynamic multiplier, and more free spins can be retriggered. But I didn't get any retriggers, as always. Other symbols in the game pay from 120x to 2x the total bet for 5 of each kind. A low paytable.
Not being a fan of Microgaming games, I played this Jungle Jim game only once so far, taking up a match bonus with my deposit. I really hate how Microgaming games tend to start off cold. It took over 340 useless spins before the first Free Spins game could come, which paid 43x my bet amount. The next one came after 140 spins, paid a nice 65x win, disappeared for a long while, then came back with a 31x win. Somehow or rather, Jungle Jim just doesn't play as good as Gonzo's Quest. Too many empty spins, the Free Spins games are hard to come by, and I didn't get any retrigger at all. I couldn't win anything big, I ended up losing everything, but most importantly, I did not enjoy playing this Jungle Jim's game. I'd prefer playing that Spaniard's game anytime!
