Description of Disney's Tarzan Windows
While Disney's animated adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan of the Apes may have failed to capture the magic that made it one of the greatest novels of the 20th century, the video game adaptation of the Disney movie offers a more-than-serviceable action platforming experience.
Run through the jungle, collecting tokens and fruit while avoiding enemies—in this regard, Disney's Tarzan is very similar to the Donkey Kong Country games. Though Disney's Tarzan is fully 3-D rendered, and there are some curling and curving side paths, Tarzan is a fairly linear 2-D platformer. And that's OK! You can race your way through the fairly lengthy levels, jumping through trees and swinging from vines quickly, or you might take a leisurely (or thorough) approach, finding all of the items and secrets each level has to offer.
While Donkey Kong Country's jungle runs may be brutal and unforgiving, Tarzan puts a greater onus on level length than deathtraps and dirty tricks to stretch out its playtime. To be certain, there are some hard spots, but it's difficulty rarely feels “unfair”--for instance, nothing in Tarzan is comparable to The Lion King's nightmarish “Can't Wait To Be King” level.
Everything in the game is brightly-colored and well rendered; much of the CG looks almost animation-quality. It's definitely no shovel-ware. There are a few qualms I have with this one, though. You'll get tired of hearing Tarzan's beast-cry (especially young Tarzan's beast-cry) very quickly. Also, since many of the enemies weave in and out of the 2-D path, it can be hard sometimes to tell when one of the enemies is actually in your hit-plane. And the lemur's... Having actually worked with ring-tailed lemurs, I can tell you that they're less dangerous than cats. The notion that Tarzan, who tore apart lions with his bare hands, fought against the agents of Stalin, and led a crack team of African riflemen against the dinosaur-riding serpent men of the inner earth, could be hurt by a ring-tailed lemur is laughable!
Still, Disney's Tarzan is a good game, and considering how hard pressed I am to think of any other Edgar Rice Burroughs-based video games off the top of my head, that's not bad! Disney's Tarzan was developed by the same team which had earlier created a similar game based on the Disney Hercules film.

For people asking about the music, on RIP files, the music and videos are never saved. That is one of the reasons why the file is smaller than the iso-file.

Hey Admin! I want to ask something. Is there any difference If we play a game using with ISO Image or RIP or any other. I'm asking this because I want to know about Save Files. You know Game Save Files usually placed in My Documents but some have other locations. I remembered I played a game using with ISO image, When I play with ISO image the game save file creates in different location and then when I play that same by Installing that with Setup (Installer) then that Save File was created in different location? Can anyone tell me difference? I really needs to understand this... Sorry for bad English.

These games are mostly ports from consoles from back in the day. It would therefore be better to emulate a PS1 version of this game. Just google it. You welcome :)

Music is cut in the RIP version. I uploaded the ISO version, which will have all music or video.
