Remember Jungle Run?

You know, that British game show that also happened to involve a Temple and take place inside a jungle?: There's now some episodes up on YouTube.

I remember watching an episode a while ago and thinking that it had a really beautiful set, but lacking game mechanics compared to Legends. Thanks for the post, though.

I actually thought the games were pretty creative, especially the "float the statues to the top" game. Of course, the set was the best part of the show - look at that detail! :)

Shame that it never came to America, but hey, we did have Legends.

The games were creative? that I can't argue with.  But at the same time, I felt like the show lacked something.  I wasn't sure what and I'm still not, but the formula of the show seem a bit lacking? could it be because it's a few players doing the same thing for twenty minutes before the "bonus" round?

I believe that Jungle Run put a tad more emphasis on teamwork than Legends, though.  Despite there being two team members for each team in the latter, there weren't actually that many challenges where the two worked together.  It's a minor irk, sure, but it's still too bad the producers couldn't have thought of another way to work that into the Temple Run or something? giving one of the rooms the same treatment as the Tomb in Jungle Run could've been cool. :P
If you have seen all 120 full episodes of Legends, copy and paste this into your profile for all to see.
