Sharing a title and storyline with the movie released around the same time, Disney's The Emperor's New Groove is an unconventional adventure meant for gamers of all ages and interests. A selfish, over-bearing Emperor pushes his people just a little too far, just a few times too often, until finally there is retaliation. One of the ruler's subjects becomes so fed up that she puts a curse on the Emperor, turning him into a llama. Though this different perspective might provide new insight to even the most hardened heart, the Emperor begins his life as a llama in the same cynical, grumpy, sarcastic mindset that he had when he was human.
The game includes many different levels with various types of gameplay. There is a forward-scrolling, "roller-coaster" challenge in which players must navigate a spinning bowl (containing our "hero") over hill and dale to relative safety. There are a few more traditional platform levels as well, in which the llama Emperor can kick and spit at his opponents. This strange tale makes for a strange game, but one that could prove interesting to Disney-crazy kids and hardened action-adventure gamers alike. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
