the development process was extraordinarily positive. Now our own numbers and
independent numbers prove that we have delivered a clear runaway hit.”

Tarzan Lord of the Jungle was the beginning of an incredible game franchise, and
Aristocrat will soon be revealing the next game in the series, Tarzan & Jane Forbidden
