This game was released after Taito was threatened by a suit filed against them by the trustees of Edgar Rice Burroughs' estate, the people who own the rights to Tarzan, for copyright infringement for using Tarzan's likeness in Jungle King. Later, Taito released Pirate Pete which was basically a sea-going imitation of both of these two games.
