Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events - Box

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events
Ages: Everyone

The game on the GBA is a complex side scroller. Beside the regular action of fighting, jumping and collecting the player must also construct contraptions. All this, plus drawings from the book and snippets from the movie.

The story format is the same as for the other platforms except, of course, that it is extremely compressed. The game starts on the beach where you learn the moves. You will be playing all of the Baudelaire children each one can use certain inventions. The first level (Book 1) The kids are locked in the bedroom and have to escape from Count Olaf's house. The second level (Book 2) the kids are with Uncle Monty and have to deal with snakes, ink guanas and mosquitoes. The third level (Book 3) finds the kids in Aunt Josephine's house perched high above Lake Lachrymose (read leeches) with a hurricane coming on. As with all the other versions -- this one ends with the wedding. The game gives a good representation of the book.
