side scrolling, ball kicker platform game

Hi! Im looking for a game i used to play like 12 years ago. Its a side scrolling platform game, with a boy as protagonist. He was able to attack with balls (soccer balls, basketballs, baseballs, beachballs etc.)
There was a level set in a jungle. Thats all i can remember.

Hope someone can help me.

It's really interesting. Those two games doesn't seem to be related (different developer, artists and publisher), yet they are too similar that it can be just coincidence. Trying to find out what's going on there atm

It's different - it's almost unplayable on MegaDrive and unplayable on GameGear. But maybe it's just me.

Yet the gameplay elements (especially the 'ball control') are very similar. A bit hard to believe that two developer teams came up with the same idea at about the same time without any connection.

Not to go to off Topic
SoccerKid and Marko seem to have many similarities the GamePlay the scenery..............
Also Soccer Kid was released for SNES but not Sega this looks like a Sega version some how.
Those other games are just other games

@s2325
Okay, Go Go Beckham is a late one, so it surely was 'inspired' by one of the others, but wtf is going on with Hurricanes as well Three different platform games that feature a football player that has almost identical ball 'attacks' within one year? Anyway, I leave it at that Just another video game oddity Thanks for the links btw

@Boo Boo
Actually Hurricanes looks a lot like the one that AnonA is looking for, so the OT wasn't that useless

So he hasn't realised this is an AMIGA board then (despite the site's name and my announcement at the top of this particular sub-forum)

I know its an AMIGA board, and no, the game im looking for is neither Hurricanes, nor the others. You could shoot with all kind of balls, not just soccer ball. Now, that I think about it, the kid had a cap.

We sometimes have some visitors who don't know (arrive here by searching looking for a game name on Google) and some people here are a bit bothered by that.


Anyway, a bit far fetched, but perhaps, if you have mixed memories, it could be one of the Charlie Chimp games:

Cap
Kid (well, chimp kid)
Various balls are featured (check this video near 0:45: [ Show youtube player ] )
