Description

Over the Hedge is based on the movie with the same name. Verne and his woodland family wake-up from their winter slumber to find an ominous green wall in neck of the woods. In their amazement to find out what this endless wall is about, RJ the raccoon is more than happy to help them. The woodland friends have never seen humans before so RJ is eager to show them what humans have to offer. RJ is quick to show them the valuable treasures humans - stockpiles of food.

Playing as RJ, Verne, Hammy, or Stella you go on missions to get FOOD. You also of course want to take back your neighborhood but that pesky Rancho Camelot Estates Homeowners Association President, Gladys Sharpe, is dead set on getting rid of you. She hires Dwayne the exterminator to use his tactics and gadgets to get rid of the likes of you.

Play by yourself or have a friend jump in and help at anytime to get the FOOD!!! There are dozens of puzzles and mini-games to keep you entertained.

Trivia

None of the character's voices in the game were done by the same actors who did the voices in the movie. Sound-alikes were hired specifically for this job.
