Anarchy reigns supreme with the sudden disappearance of Police Commissioner James Gordon and the lockdown of Arkham Asylum, home for the criminally insane. By using all of his skills, both mental and physical, as well as a variety of gadgets, Batman must stop the gang war, infiltrate Arkham Asylum and rescue the Commissioner. During this time, Batman must also piece together clues to discover the mastermind behind these seemingly unrelated events and stop an evil plan that threatens the fate of the entire world! Title: Egg Mania Release date: September 10, 2002 Genre: Action Puzzle Game Platform: GBA In this cartoon arcade style puzzle game, players battle one another to be the quickest to build a tower out of blocks. Facing challenges that include ascending water, challenging enemies and the inherent environmental hazards within each level, players must catch the falling blocks and drop them into their correct positions before the rising water consumes them. The object of this game is to be first to reach the top of the level and locate the pull chain that is used to “flush” their opponent’s tower. Title: Egg Mania: Eggstreme Madness Release date: September 10, 2002 Genre: Action Puzzle Game Platform: GameCube, PS2 Faithful to the original game theme, Egg Mania: Eggstreme Madness evolves around the concept of racing to build towers from randomly falling blocks while avoiding nasty foes and rising moat water. The game delivers an amazing array of customizable options for balanced gameplay and optimum challenge and includes dozens of new characters and modes that offer puzzle game depth and replay value. Title: Boulder® Dash EX Release date: August 2002 Genre: Acton Puzzle Games Platform: GBA Based on the coin-op arcade classic, players are cast as a curious explorer that, upon discovering a hidden cave, stumbles across the remains of an ancient culture. These adventurers must delve into the ruins of six worlds and search for hidden treasure, all the while defending themselves against blood-sucking bats, poisonous scorpions and a plethora of other monsters. New features include screen rotation and scaling, time bombs and multi-player support. Title: Crazy Chase Release date: October 2002 Genre: Action Adventure Platform: GBA In this quick-thinking crazy game, players will strap on their turbo-charged clown shoes and assist Kid Klown in saving the world and defeating the vile space pirate Dirty Joe, who has kidnapped “Her Royal Bratness,” Princess Honey. Players join forces with Kid Klown to find four items that will enable the dynamic duo to reach the next stage before Dirty Joe’s bomb detonates. Fast fingers and a sense of humor are essential while facing perilous objects, such as cars, thorns, spikes, cannons, sticky bushes and rolling logs. Title: Woody Woodpecker Crazy Castle 5 Release date: September 2002 Genre: Action Platform: GBA In this fifth installment of the action-adventure Crazy Castle series, players step into the shoes of the loveable Looney Toon character Woody Woodpecker in his quest to aid Mother Nature in freeing the Fairy World from Demons. With the assistance of Mother Nature, players must navigate through several elemental worlds, collecting keys and other useful items, while assuming different costumes and discovering new abilities along the way. While searching for keys to find and unlock new doors, players will come across treasure chests filled with helpful items such as dart guns to freeze enemies or fruit pies to momentarily stun them. Each world has a new and dangerous adversary that must be defeated, before advancing to the next level and ultimately saving the Fairy world. GameBoy® Advance MP3 Player The GBA MP3 Player features a portable music player function in addition to the normal GBA functions and can easily record and play music that can be heard via headphones or GBA speakers. It comes with a voice delete function that allows music lovers to delete vocals which are recorded with a built-in microphone.
