It's nearly 20 years since the release of the classic horror/comedy Gremlins. Remember those cute little furry teddy bear creatures? Don't get them wet after midnight, and don't, whatever you do, feed them, err, chips. Or something like that. Well you can now re-live the exploits of Gizmo et al on the move with the GBA version of Gremlins: Stripe Vs Gizmo.

Set in locations inspired by the 1980's film, such as the little Chinese shop, the police station and the movie theatre, Stripe Vs Gizmo offers players the chance to assume the role of either of the two protagonists and travel through two original scenarios of side-scrolling, platforming antics.

Gizmo's story sees the little furball on the run from the gang of evil Gremlins intent on capturing him and transforming him into one of their own. Players can stun enemies by curling up into a ball and launching themselves at the blighters, before finishing them off with a flashlight (Bright light! Bright light!).

Selecting the nasty Stripe character reverses the roles in the story, requiring players to capture Mogwai and turn them into Gremlins. And what better way to do that? That's right, throw cream pies at them!!

Aside from the main game, Stripe Vs Gizmo also features an Against the Clock mode (move through the levels in record time, challenging your friends) as well as a Two-Player mode. With the aid of a trusty link-up cable and a GBA-owning friend, this mode allows players to take part in a real time competition, set in the famous Fountain level.

Gremlins: Strip Vs Gizmo is very cute and a lot of fun. But it's no ordinary game. You must remember the three rules. What are they again?
