About Happy Feet the Videogame
Midway's immersive videogame puts the player in the "tap shoes" of Mumble, a young penguin born into a nation of singing Emperor penguins where each needs a Heartsong to attract a soul mate. Unfortunately, Mumble is the worst singer in the world... however, as it happens, he is a brilliant tap dancer!
Based on the general storyline of the film, players are able to experience life from the point of view of Mumble through music, dance and interaction with friends and enemies in his world. Through the course of the game, Mumble grows from a small fluffy toddler into a tall, confident adult as he belly-sleds, dances, and swims through Antarctica on an amazing adventure. The exciting game play features a number of different play modes and is complemented by a playful and lively music soundtrack.
Happy Feet the videogame is currently available for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo DS, Game Boy Advance and personal computers. For more information on Happy Feet the videogame, please visit http://www.happyfeet-game.com.
