Lego is confusing these days, what's happened to all the bricks? It used to be just little men with smiley faces and clip-on hair dos, and a load of rectangular blocks with which you could build stuff, like houses. Nowadays we've got things like Bionicle, which is the story of the island of Mata Nui - a tropical paradise with high mountains, great lakes and mighty volcanoes. Not a block or clip-on hairdo in sight!

Matoran Adventures is a 2D-platform adventure game for the Game Boy Advance set on this island. The story features two races of creatures called Matoran and Turaga who embark on a quest to defeat the evil Bahrag - the great enemy of Mata Nui and its inhabitants.

Along the way, players must avoid and overcome the mighty beast Rahi and the ravenous bug-like Bohrok, as they solve puzzles, avoid traps, open doors and activate switches to reveal hidden chambers in each of the environments. As players dodge in and out of the various regions in the game, they must avoid dangerous falling rocks and icicles while they steer clear of lava pools.

Throughout the game, a character-switching feature is at hand helping players advance through each of the six levels. Players start as a Matoran and unlock more characters as they progress. Turaga, with their unique powers, can be 'picked up' throughout the game to help the player through an elemental hazard like a lava pool or to activate a switch to a secret door. Once found, the newly acquired Turaga will follow throughout the adventure.
