Originally a popular Saturday morning animated TV show, The Rugrats are still hugely popular and successful. So successful in fact, that they now star in their own feature length movies . Not doing things by halves, and in typical videogame and cinema tradition, the gang is about to make their way onto various gaming platforms with a tie-in of their latest adventure. The GameBoy Color development is among these platforms, and offers a very different playing experience in comparison. This time around, Chucky, Phil, Lil, Dil, Kimi and Angelica are on a mission to France to stop Chucky’s father from marrying the evil Coco.

Rugrats in Paris for GameBoy Color, at least, offers two different playing experiences to the player, incorporating both the puzzle and platform genres. When playing the game’s tons of mini games, you must learn the rules for each one and score as many points as possible. When progressing, many of the challenges become distinctly harder than the ones before them, a forewarning for inexperienced gamers.

Sooner or later, you will come across the game’s main action section that consists of a side-on scrolling platformer. There is technically nothing special here, just typical jump-over-cliffs-and-avoid-bad-guys kind a stuff. The environments in which the game is set, however, are quite diverse, ranging from gooey worlds to rocket ships and theme parks.

Aimed at a GameBoy-owning market of over 100 million, Rugrats in Paris is sure to attract the attention of many ardent fans of the talking babies.
