Jungle Hunt

Original System: Atari 5200

The Atari 5200 port of Jungle Hunt may look a little different than the arcade version, but many people actually like it more than the original.  The Atari 5200 version is exactly the same as the 400/800 version with the exception of the title screen which has a different copyright message (not mentioning Atari at all) and some slightly different colors.  The title screen also displays player one's score and the High Score on start up, whereas the 5200 version will not display this information until at least one game has been played.

Another difference is that the player can press 1 on the keypad to see a demo in the 5200 version, but has to wait 30 seconds to see it in the 400/800 version.  Interestingly a prototype of the 5200 version has the text "Press 1 for a demo" which was removed from the final version
