Gameplay. Four players navigate a jungle of 20 hanging PlayStation Move controllers. Each player is assigned a color. Players need to hold (pressing any button) controllers of their color. As long as you have two controllers pressed, you are safe. If no controllers of your color are pressed, you are eliminated instantly. If only one controller of your color is pressed, you begin to lose life energy quickly. Grab a second controller, quickly, before all your energy drains and you're eliminated. Colors move around the jungle and the pace speeds up as the game progresses. "Tarzan" around the space, and use your body to block the others' paths. Awkward body contact encouraged.
