CJ the elephant has been stolen from his mother and on way to a zoo in England. All of a sudden the plane rocks side to side and CJ's cage bursts open. Grabbing an umbrella he jumps out of the plane and lands in Paris, now he is free, he has to start his journey through Europe and back to Africa where his family belong.

The Game..
CJ the elephant is a platform game, your mission is to battle though various levels and avoid strange creatures. You will encounter killer snails, clouds that fire lightning at you, french police and more. To aide you in your mission, your trunk is equipped with peanuts to fire at unsuspecting enemies. Also as part of your weapons arsenal you carry bombs which can be handy if say, you need to kill enemies on a ledge below you. The terrain isnt very helpful either, you will come across spikes, ice cold rivers and many other objects which will make your quest that little bit harder.

As you progress through the levels, you will encounter various different bosses which can be quite hard to beat. Each level changes, obviously you start in Paris and then you go through the different terrains of Europe and then the harsh terrains of Africa.

CJ Elephant Antics has the option of two-players which is quite fun, obviously this makes things a little easier when you have double the fire power!

CJ Elephant Antics is a very colourful game, it contains some very nice music too. I can't really name any bad things about it, other than sometimes if you go too near to a set of spikes, you die, even though it appears you havent really touched them! Other than that, CJ is very fun to play and even better in two player mode!
