    Wallace & Gromit star in this an action-adventure game. Help them liberate the zoo from the evil clutches of the maniacal penguin "Feathers McGraw." Feathers wants to make diamonds—lots of diamonds—and he'll stop at nothing to achieve his dream. The diabolical penguin has incarcerated all the baby animals in order to persuade their parents to do his bidding and manufacture gems, using the incredible Diamond-o-Matic. Wallace and Gromit have smelled the fishy presence of Feathers and have developed an elaborate plan to infiltrate his domain and defeat him. You control Gromit, the lovable action-hero dog (with Wallace providing predictive hints and humorous interjections). Save the animals… and be the hero!

BAM! Entertainment Press Release:

    WALLACE AND GROMIT BRAVE NEW FRONTIER!

    Acclaimed development studio begins work on first next generation Wallace and Gromit game!

    San Jose, Calif. (May 17, 2002) - BAM! Entertainment (Nasdaq: BFUN) is pleased to announce that production of the first next-generation interactive Wallace and Gromit video game is currently underway with renowned games developer Frontier Developments, adding another superb visual dimension to compliment Aardman's much loved duo. Anthony Williams, Managing Director at BAM! commented on the partnership: "Frontier Developments has a long history of creating innovative, original and most of all, immensely enjoyable games. We're delighted the company is on board with this new Wallace and Gromit adventure and look forward to working with the team on creating a game that fans of all ages can enjoy."

    Founded by David Braben, co-author of the seminal 'Elite', in 1994, Frontier Developments has a string of hits to its name, including BAFTA award nominee V2000 and the critically acclaimed Elite 2: Frontier. With a wealth of experience, unique animation technology and a pool of talented artists and programmers, Frontier is perfectly suited to the task of bringing Wallace and Gromit to the world of console gaming. David Braben, Chairman of Frontier, said: "We are very pleased to be working with BAM for the first time. We are all huge Wallace and Gromit fans, so it's also a great experience to be collaborating so closely with Nick Park and the teams at Aardman and BAM! Using Frontier's game expertise and animation technology together with Aardman's exceptional skills, we plan to significantly raise people's expectations of visual quality, attention to detail, story and over-the-shoulder experience - together we are working towards a 'landmark' game."

    Frontier is working with the production teams of both BAM! and Aardman to ensure that the game captures the unique charm of all three cracking Wallace and Gromit adventures. The close cooperation on artwork, scripting and other aspects of the production will result in the new game benefiting from the charisma of both original and new characters, which is complemented by the humour and magnetism we've come to associate with Wallace and Gromit. Nick Park commented: "Video games are an exciting new medium for Aardman and we're delighted that BAM! and ourselves are working with a studio of Frontier's standing on introducing Wallace and Gromit to a brand new audience. "

    The new game, due in 2003 on all leading formats, is a platform adventure featuring new storylines and characters as well as the ever popular and much missed 'stars' featured in previous Wallace and Gromit adventures.

    Amongst the game's many challenges, players will rescue young animals from the clutches of mischievous monkeys and thwart Feathers McGraw's twisted and diabolical plan for total zoo domination. Set in an immersive 3D world, the player is cast as Gromit and is challenged to outwit Feathers McGraw and destroy his evil contraptions in order to rescue the young animals. Machine parts, located throughout the game's many testing levels, must also be gathered so that the ever-inventive Wallace can create a marvellous contraption with which to deal the final knockout blow to the dastardly Feathers and his vile plans.

www.nintendo.com – GameCube:
    Wallace & Gromit are bringing distinctly offbeat British humor to the Nintendo GameCube with their first videogame adventure.

    The Claymation duo of Gromit, a pooch whose floppy ears conceal a shrewd brain, and Wallace, his incessantly yapping master, must liberate a zoo from a maniacal penguin named Feathers McGraw.

    In 24 missions across six levels, you will control Gromit, whose many moves include back flips and head spins. Nature has outfitted Wallace with seriously dorky threads and an inability to keep his mouth shut, but amidst his nonstop prattle are some genuinely useful hints.

    Wallace will also contribute zany inventions such as the Springy Boots, Gyrocopter, Porridge Gun and Trojan Penguin, but of course it's up to Gromit (and you) to actually make 'em work. Putting the kibosh on Feathers' dastardly plan will require Gromit to occasionally make like fellow Brit James Bond and perform stealth moves.

    When previewed at the recent E3 Expo in Los Angeles, the graphics seemed to be coming along nicely. Detailed characters and animation will bring these much-loved characters to life. Publisher BAM! promises a jolly-good adventure filled with movie show-biz parodies.

    That diobolical penguin has inevitably become the Mr Big in his zoo 'prison', and has incarcerated all the junior residents in order to persuade their parents to do his bidding by manufacturing gems using the incredible Diamond-o-Matic.....Wallace and Gromit infiltrate the zoo by means of a giant Trojan Penguin (one of Wallace's more successful ideas..) Once inside you need to help our dynamic duo dash to the rescue of each of the offspring....a challenge only the truly inventive can meet!

    • Play as the ever-resourceful and adventurous Gromit, with Wallace never far behind to offer his well-meaning (if sometimes dubious) hints...
    • Bursting with inventions that are designed to challenge the mind and aid your journey, as well as filling every level with fast paced fun - get your hands on the 'Porridge Gun', 'Turnip Launcher', 'Springy Boots', 'Melt-o-matic', 'Techno Trousers' and more...
    • Bamboozle your way past Feathers' army of zoo keeper henchmen and mischevious monkeys..!
    • Race through five enormous, action-packed levels (with 24 sub levels and mini-arcade games) covering eight different 'animal houses' in the Zoo...
    • Master tons of special moves from Gromit, including head-spins, back-flips and many more...
    • New Characters designed by Nick Park...


    The game takes full advantage of the PS2, Xbox and GameCube console capabilities, with features such as high polygon count models to give smooth-looking characters, techniques like multi-texturing, environment-mapping, dynamic and specular lighting, shadowing and depth of field to deliver great graphical quality, plus cutting-edge in-game animation that's faithful to the Oscar-winning films.

    Frontier has co-operated closely with Aardman on artwork, scripting and other aspects of the production in order to emphasise the charisma of both the well known and new characters, complemented (of course) by the Wallace and Gromit humour we've come to know and love.

    Nick Park commented: "Video games are an exciting new medium for Aardman and we’re delighted that BAM! and ourselves are working with a studio of Frontier’s standing on introducing Wallace and Gromit to a brand new audience."

    Übersicht

    Der federleichte Schwerverbrecher McGraw ist wieder da, und diesmal hat der diebische Pinguin vor, Tier-Babys aus dem örtlichen Zoo zu entführen. Ihr übernehmt die Rolle von Gromit, Wallaces stummem hündischem Beistand, und als dieser ist es eure Aufgabe, das Rätsel um den Säuglings-Grabscher zu lösen - und McGraws Federn zu beschneiden ... endgültig.

    Details

    Nach dem atemberaubenden Erfolg von Aardmans vorhergehenden animierten TV-Ausflügen, unter anderen "Creature Comforts" und "The Wrong Trousers", geben die Lehm-animierten Figuren nun ihr 3D-Debüt auf PlayStationr2. Der Wensleydale-Käse-liebende Wallace und sein stummer Köter Gromit stolpern über Feathers neuesten ruchlosen Plan, und finden sich mitten in einer Diamantenabbau-Verschwörung wieder, in die die örtlichen Zoo-Bewohner und obendrein einige böse Affen verwickelt sind.

    Ihr geht als Hündchen Gromit auf zwei Beinen in den Kampf, und erforscht eine Vielzahl von Gebieten, während ihr nach Materialien sucht, um Wallaces Ausrüstung zu reparieren. Dabei tragt ihr ein paar beeindruckende selbst gemachte Waffen, die euch der schusselige Erfinder zur Verfügung gestellt hat. Unter den feinen Sachen, die da zur Auswahl stehen sind: Eine Haferbrei-Knarre, eine Kohlen-Schleuder, ein Bananen-Werfer und eine Rüben-Kanone, die alle richtig spassige Angriffe garantieren. Insgesamt ist zwar alles recht normaler 3D-Kram, aber Nick Parks einzigartige, schrullige Animationen heben Wallace & Gromit weit über den Durchschnitt des gewöhnlichen Rennen-Springen-Einsammeln-Abenteuers.

    Features

  • Schwingt eine Auswahl an verrückten Waffen, wie z. B. eine Rüben-Kanone oder eine Haferbrei-Knarre

  • Löst Puzzles und schaltet versteckte Zusätze frei, wie z. B. ein Video-Interview mit ,Wallace & Gromit"-Schöpfer Nick Park

  • Spielt 24 verschiedene Missionen, die euch durch den ganzen Zoo führen

    Summary

    The light-feathered felon McGraw is back, and this time the pilfering penguin has his sights set on kidnapping baby animals from the local zoo. Playing as Gromit, Wallace's silent canine side-kick, it's up to you to get to the bottom of this mammal-nabbing mystery, and clip McGraw's feathers - for good.

    Details

    Following the phenomenal success of Aardman's previous animated TV outings, including Creature Comforts and The Wrong Trousers, the claymation characters make their 3D debut on PlayStation 2. Wensleydale-loving Wallace and his mute mutt Gromit stumble on Feathers' latest nefarious scheme, and find themselves implicated in a diamond-mining plot involving the local zoo's residents, and some evil monkeys to boot.

    Entering the fray as bipedal pooch Gromit, you'll explore a variety of areas in search of equipment to repair Wallace's gadgetry (bolts, natch), and tote some impressive home-made weaponry provided by the bumbling inventor. Amongst the goodies on offer are: a porridge gun, a coal flinger, a banana launcher and a turnip cannon, for full-on comedy assaults. It's all fairly standard 3D platformer stuff, but Nick Park's unique brand of quirky animation raises Wallace & Gromit above the average run-jump-collect stuff type adventure.

    Features

  • Wield a collection of crazy weaponry, including a turnip cannon and a porridge gun

  • Play puzzles and unlock hidden features such as video interviews with Wallace and Gromit creator Nick Park

  • Play 24 different missions throughout the zoo
