From the moment the curtain rises and the theme song starts it is obvious that NewKidCo has captured what makes the Muppets so lovable. Each of the four pinball boards is themed after one of your favorite Muppet characters.
Details like Piggy's pink flippers and Gonzo's cannon-ball launcher do a good job capturing the zany personality of each character. Of course everyone's favorite frog gets his own board and there is one surprise character-themed board to unlock. The graphics are generally good, but unfortunately, some of the finer details appear muddled.
Classic pinball pros will love all the bumpers, flippers and bonuses in Muppet Pinball Mayhem. Complete bonus objectives and your ball might leave a trail of stars, act as a bomb or even spawn multiple balls. Each board conceals mini-tables.
Up to four players can go for a high score in Competition mode by sharing a single Game Boy Advance unit. In Adventure Mode, a single player can advance through each board by completing certain goals.
Muppet Pinball Mayhem will be in stores late March and has been rated "E" (Everyone) by the independent Entertainment Software Rating Board. Progress is saved to the Game Pak in a single save file.
