African Safari - Lions, leopards and wild animals of every kind! Jump into the adventure and capture your prize. Succeed in making the points quota and prove yourself as "King of the Jungle"!

The aim of the game is, with the help of the balls, to achieve the predefined points quota. Every player gets 10 balls, with which he must "capture" the moving animals. To do this you must hover your mouse over the target and click the mouse button. Pick your target carefully - always trying to hit the required target. Hitting the wrong target will result in a points deduction.
But be careful, the agile little creatures are not that easy to catch and you need to take account of the physics of the balls. That means that not only do you need to have a good aim, you need to take account of the flight path and weight of the ball you are throwing. The longer you hold the mouse button before releasing, the further you'll throw the ball. You can request new balls at any time, but a points penalty will apply, so watch your ammo!

Game Instructions:
1. Hit the required target. You have 10 balls.
2. You can request new balls any time, but for a points penalty.
3. Like all gimigames games, only the fastest players make it through, so hurry!


Well, I can't really say this game was bad or anything. It seemed to deliver most of what you'd expect from something like this. I was kind of hoping that the actual game would be about capturing pictures of wild animals. This still works pretty well too. I'm surprised how I wasn't able to figure it out at first with what animal was being targeted. It sure got annoying when it always switched.

Of course, that's what makes a game like this challenging! I also really like the music. It may not be that detailed, but it has pretty clearcut gameplay. I was surprised at how quickly I was able to get used to the scope. It's a fine game.

2 things

1) If you accidentally knock down a wrong target, they don't re-spawn.

2) If you do knock down the wrong target the game doesn't care, in fact the game will continue to let you buy balls, and just marks you at negative points instead of ending the game.

(Side note: I had gotten around 85% and I couldn't get another lion to spawn so I knocked down every other target, and the game didn't reset the targets... might wanna fix at least this so the game is at least complete-able.)

Have a good day :)

what are you supposed to do when it asks for an animal that there are no more of?
