Baloo, the jolly bear of Jungle Book fame, and his sidekick, Kit, have decided to enter a contest. All they have to do is be the first ones to collect a cargo box from each of ten locations. The winner receives a lifetime work contract with the city. Sounds simple enough, eh? Wishful thinking!
Little do our furry friends know that the cargo boxes are scattered everywhere. And, to make matters worse, Shere Khan the tiger(also from the Jungle Book), has decided to take a swipe at the grand prize, too. Waiting in the wings is the villainous air pirate, Don Kamage. You can see the deck is stacked against Kit and Baloo and their cargo company, Higher for Hire.
You can go cargo box hunting as either Kit or Baloo. Kit's smaller and faster, while Baloo is slower and stronger. No matter who you choose you've got your work cut out for you. The cargo boxes are located in the most precarious places, such as high atop rocky ledges and at the foot of bear-eating pits of quicksand, and you've got a limited amount of time to retrieve them.
Worse, the resident monkeys, snakes, and crabs aren't keen on having bears invade their territory so be prepared to shake a leg and ball when they attempt to jump, bite, and pinch the life outta you. Fortunately, if you start feeling kinda low, a little extra searching will bring you energizing burgers and other helpful items.
Cargo boxes are picked up by jumping on them and pressing DOWN with the D-Button. Noncargo boxes and other objects can be picked up and moved, then dropped, to use as steps. This is a particularly good feature for Kit.
If you can collect all your cargo, you still have to contend with Don Karnage, the foxy air pirate. Can you "bear" to have so much fun? Baloo and Kit think so. Get with the program and get your paws on Tale Spin.
