It wouldn't be a Disney film if it didn't result in a slew of video game spin-offs, would it? Not wanting to disappoint, Disney Interactive Studios has brought us Disney Pictures Presents Meet the Robinsons.

Crazy time travel is the name of the game here. That nasty Bowler Hat Guy and his equally sinister robotic hat Doris are making their way through time, changing the past and messing with the future. The job of stopping them falls to Wilbur Robinson, as he dodges through time, doing everything he can to outmanoeuvre them.

The game takes players beyond the movie, expanding the film's plot by exploring alternate futures created by the Bowler Hat Guy's machinations. This leads to the creation of two all-new villains, exclusive to the game.

The game takes you on a whirlwind tour of time, throwing in new worlds such as Ancient Egypt and crazy gadgets like the Protectosphere. Also on offer, of course, are favourites from the movie such as the Science Fair. You'll need to use Wilbur's gadgets in crafty ways as you solve puzzles and complete missions to stop time being permanently messed up.

Sure, time travel can mess with your head and confuse you until you don't know what's the past and what's future, but our advice is not to worry about it and go with the flow. If you keep your wits about you and your reactions sharp, it'll all come together in the end.
