Videogame News:
Hulk Comes To Game Boy
By Brian Jacks

05.07.03


Vivendi Universal Games announced today that England-based Pocket Studios is developing the handheld video game The Incredible Hulk for Nintendo's Game Boy Advance. The video game is based on the Marvel comic book series.

Players must guide the Hulk through six destructible worlds including military compounds, barren deserts, subterranean cities, underground caves, and earth's distant future. Thirty-three intense levels of gameplay challenge players to defeat infamous villains from the original Hulk comics.

"Vivendi Universal Games is confident that Pocket Studios will successfully provide the excitement of The Incredible Hulk legacy while pushing the envelope on gameplay mechanics," said Luc Vanhal, North American President & COO of Vivendi Universal Games. "Vivendi Universal Games is dedicated to delivering the essential aspects of Hulk to his fans in the form of interactive handheld entertainment."

Established in 1999, Pocket Studios has grown to become one of the world's largest developers of games for Nintendo's Game Boy hand-held video game system. Pocket Studios has assembled a team of more than 25 people to work with the world's leading publishers to create quality handheld titles.

"The Incredible Hulk license presented a terrific new challenge for Pocket Studios, driving the team to exploit the capabilities/push the limits of the GBA in order to create enjoyable gameplay that authentically recreates the Hulk's abilities," said David Williams, development director at Pocket Studios. "The animation system and destructible scenery technology we created really helps bring the Hulk alive within the game, allowing players to freely roam multiple objective environments destroying scenery and objects in their path."
