The THQ/Nickelodeon partnership seems to generate an endless supply of games based of the latter's burgeoning catalogue of children's TV shows. One of the most prolific of the resulting game subjects, the Rugrats, are making a return to the PlayStation 2 in this latest adventure, Royal Ransom.

The story behind the game sees the kids embark on a magical adventure to Stu Pickles' Play Palace 3000 (PP3K). As Tommy, Chuckie, Kimi, Phil and Lil all take turns climbing up to the PP3K, they soon find that something's amiss. Every time they climb higher, the Palace moves further out of their reach. Angelica, the self-appointed Queen of PP3K, has dubbed the rest of the Rugrats her loyal subjects who will need to obey her commands. As the Rugrats defiantly refuse Queen Angelica's demands, they each find their most treasured items haven fallen into her possession. Tommy and company must now begin their adventure to reclaim their treasures so they too can play in the PP3K.

What follows is very much your average 3D, platform-based collect-em-up, as players take control of the children and explore an assortment of imaginary environments, on the search for the toys. Players will traverse nine of these gaming locales in all, each with numerous challenges, and discover and unlock bonus levels and multi-player games. You'll soar on a flying carpet, combat the sea in a submarine and sled down a mountain in true Rugrats over-the-top style.
