The Emperor’s new groove finally hits home on the Game Boy. If you are a fan of the Disney Film or platform games in general, this title is worth looking at. In case you don’t know the story, the young Emperor Kuzco is a bit cocky, and his loyal servant devises a plan to get rid of him once and for all. He is comically turned into llama and banished from the palace. Kuzco wakes up in a village, far away and starts his quest to make it back to the palace and regain his rightful throne. He might even learn a few lessons about being nice to people and working with folk along the way.
The aim of the game faithfully follows the story of the film. In a side on scrolling fashion, you must overcome all obstacles and enemies and make it to the end of the level. Even in llama form Kuzco can learn new abilities and attacks by finding scrolls scattered around the levels. These attacks such as head-butting can be useful for taking out the baddies that stand in your way.
The graphics in The Emperor’s New Groove are impressive considering they are on the Game Boy. The animation on Kuzco is superb, something we have come to expect from Disney. Overall, there is a lot of challenge and fun to be had with this title. Can you help Kuzco become an Emperor again?
