Smarties console game (!!!)
« on: June 22, 2005, 04:39:32 pm »
"Those of you with a soft spot (or perhaps a Cool Spot) for
confectionary-based platform games will be thrilled to learn that KOCH
Media has signed up SMARTIES for release in game form this October on
an unnamed console.

Technically it's a "third-person action-adventure", but we're not fooled. We are excited
though - and who wouldn't be? Smarties: Meltdown will see hero Big Blue
(a blue Smartie!) on a mission to save the Smarties Factory Ship from
an invasion of Dr Soursweet and his evil Stroopers - second-rate sweets
hated by the children of Earth.

With voice work from Dave Benson Phillips (Playdays, Playhouse
Disney), Big Blue will have to clobber his way through the Factory Ship
orbiting Earth while it's under attack by a "small armada" of ships
from Dr Soursweet's evil fleet - his
comrades-in-being-crispy-coated-chocolate-treats having been imprisoned.

Nestlé is apparently very happy with the idea, and looks forward to
a game that brings out the Smarties personality. We just hope it looks
like that 90s advert where the policeman walks down the street
whistling, looks down a hole, goes "Erugh!?" and then gets sucked down
an underground rainbow.

We'll bring you more on Smarties: Meltdown when we finish this mouthful [nearer October, then -Ed]."
