''Let's Go Jungle!: Lost on the Island of Spice'' is a rail-shooter, in which BigCreepyCrawlies attack from the front and players are required to shoot them with a gun. At some points of the game, the player must [[PressXToNotDie perform special tasks such as moving the gun in a certain direction, tapping buttons quickly, or tapping the buttons at the right time]].

Ben and Norah, whose relationship is floundering, tour an island in Asia. However, they find that [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever mutant giant animals]] are wreaking havoc, and they are desperate to escape.

In the course of their adventure, Ben and Norah learn the story behind the island. According to a local boy of the island and a helicopter pilot, an environmental NGO called "Green Leaves" came to the island after it was devastated by war. Following the motto of "bring back the green", scientists of Green Leaves discovered a species of mushroom that possessed extraordinary biological regenerative properties. The scientists extracted and refined the mushrooms' essence, creating a powerful chemical extract that could accelerate biological growth. In cooperation with the island's natives, Green Leaves used the chemical extract to restore the island's fauna and flora within five years. However, it was later discovered that the extract's properties were too powerful, resulting in giant-sized animals, insects, and plants that have the capacity to harm humans. Green Leaves and many of the island's natives evacuated the island when events grew uncontrollable, although a number of natives decided to remain behind.

Gained a sequel called ''VideoGame/LetsGoIsland'' set on an island whose wildlife has gone crazy. You play as a vacationing woman named Beth and her bumbling tour guide Zack as they get roped into combating them while having to deal with pirates who are only interested in getting treasure.

* CoOpMultiplayer: Given that Ben and Norah, the two protagonists, are in a relationship, the game relies on (and, in fact, ''scores'' you) how well you and your friend work together, giving bonuses for shooting something about to attack the other player or both shooting the same target. Naturally, the PressXToNotDie sequences are built to destroy your friendship, as both players must perform well to succeed in them. You will receive a percentage after every stage and at your game's end on how well you worked together; the highest scores DEMAND perfection and synchronized cooperation.
** And to get the good ending? [[GoldenSnitch Yes, it all depends on one of those sequences]].

** SmashingSurvival: The first kind is a button-mashing sequence where both players need to fill up a bar before time runs out.
** The second kind shows two arrows on the screen (one for each player), and each player has to point their gun in their direction given before time runs out. Usually, the direction given is the same for both players, ''but not always''.
** The third (and most difficult) kind looks similar to a mechanical clock, with two arrow hands that spin into a lit-up area. You need to press the start button when the arrows go into the area, otherwise you fail.

** And in the sequel Let's Go Island, it's a giant octopus that does the same thing. FridgeBrilliance for the fact that both of them have eight legs...
* RuthlessModernPirates: Lampshaded. One of our heroes in the second game asks if the pirates they're trying to get away from in the first stage are of the romanticized ones of lore. The other explains that they most certainly are not.
