CJ Elephant Fugitive

Console: Sega Game Gear

Codemasters had an early viral hit with CJs Elephant Antics, which introduced the world to smart-aleck pachyderm Columbus Junior. The initial game, which did the rounds on ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64 and the like, spawned a flurry of clones and sequels, eventually reaching the Game Gear with this unlikely installment in which CJ has been falsely accused and sentenced to imprisonment in London Zoo–not usually an institution known for its efforts in punitive confinement.

CJ rises to the challenge over six equally implausible levels worth of peanut-spitting and umbrella-parachuting, culminating in his triumphant return to the African savanna–where presumably he is ostracized for his clothes-wearing, umbrella-twirling ways.
