2 in 1 Game Pack: Shrek 2 and Madagascar: Operation Penguin is based on the DreamWorks movies Shrek 2 and Madagascar. The gruff but lovable ogre returns to Game Boy Advance in a platform-hopping adventure that encourages teamwork among a small squad of onscreen characters. Players control Shrek and up to three of his companions as they side-scroll through levels based on locations in the feature film sequel, Shrek 2. Different obstacles require the abilities of different characters to overcome them, so players must switch between their chosen team members as each situation requires. Shrek is strong enough to move objects that others can not, for example, while Donkey is able to kick open doors and Fiona can slow down time for easier attacks. The game also features characters and areas not seen in the film, offering fans new fairy tale people to meet and lands to explore.
Madagascar: Operation Penguin follows the storyline of the 2005 computer-animated film, from the perspective of the intrepid Private Penguin. Players must help Private escape from a hazard-filled zoo and rescue fellow animals from a life of captivity. What ensues is a side-scrolling platform game spanning 18 levels, taking players from monkey cages and lion pens to subways and African plains. Private Penguin can run, jump, swim, and perform his trademark karate chop on such beastly foes as baboons, crocodiles, and snakes. Gadgets can be acquired to assist in the cross-continental journey, including hamburger-wrapper parachutes and soda-bottle jet packs. Movie characters Alex, Marty, Melman, and Gloria are also playable in specific stages tailored to their distinct abilities. ~ All Game Guide
