Description

This portable game is based on the movie version of the second installment of Tolkien's classic trilogy. While the console versions of The Two Towers were action games with 3D graphics, this version is a played from a top-down perspective, kind of like Gauntlet.

The GBA version is an isometric action/RPG that allows players to take control of five characters: Aragorn, Legolas, Frodo, Eowyn and Gandalf the Wizard. Every character is challenged over 30 levels, bringing the grand total to over 150 levels in the entire game. Linked play will accommodate two-player multiplayer action via the GBA Link Cable.

Trivia

Includes a series of levels focusing on Eowyn defending the Glittering Caves from invading uruk-hai. While this scene was filmed (and even appeared in an early trailer), it never appeared in the final film, yet it remains a large part of Eowyn's quest in the game.
