    And what dare I ask is this? Any screens?

    Oh, apparently this is a movie game. Great. I almost looked twice at this too. It's got that girl who does Hermione in Harry Potter. My crappy game senses are tingling.

    I don't see THQ slapped on it anywhere, that must mean it's not that bad?

    For a movie game, this is a surprisingly decent platformer. The graphics are quite good overall for a DS game, ranging from pretty good in some parts to absolutely beautiful in others. The audio is not particularly notable. The controls aren't too bad, aside from the unfortunate decision to use the D-pad, buttons, and touch screen all at once (it's not as bad as it could be though). The "tiny mouse in a human size world" aspect is done pretty well.

    I haven't played very much yet (I just got the "sword"), but I do plan to play further. I recommend checking this game out if you're looking for a new platformer to waste a few hours on.

    Yeah, `cause Lock's Quest, AoE: Mythologies, de Blob, Drawn to Life -- those were all terrible games.

    Anyway, could be good, but likely only drought fodder. But heck, another 3D platformer...has to be worth at least a look.
