Based on the highly anticipated film from DreamWorks Animation and Aardman, the FLUSHED AWAY videogame from D3Publisher of America, Inc. (D3PA) is available on U.S. retail store shelves today (Oct. 24, 2006) for a suggested retail price of $29.95.
The game takes players on a thrilling adventure through London's underground metropolis where players encounter enemies, waterfalls and traps as they thwart the villainous Toad and his evil plans. They will discover new environments unique to the game as they assume the roles of one of three characters in the film Roddy, an adventurous character who is suddenly "flushed" into a bustling world below the streets of London; Rita, a beautiful street-smart scrounger who is also a thief, and the Jammy Dodger, Rita's boat which has a unique personality of its own.
"We have worked closely with DreamWorks and Aardman to authentically bring the humor of the FLUSHED AWAY film and the personalities of its characters to life in our game," said Careen Yapp, vp of licensing and business development, D3PA.
FLUSHED AWAY offers more than 10 levels and various exciting mini-games. Players may use a rat trap catapult, a dashing cocktail sword, pudding mix and other items found in the sewer to defeat enemies and dodge floating debris. Fun mini-games, such as CASTLE SIEGE and PATHFINDER, extend the gameplay and offer players a chance to increase their health by collecting and salvaging rare treasures, boosting their energy through power-up items and unlocking exclusive content.
