Happy Feet

Happy Feet is an immersive adventure game filled with song and dance that puts the player in the "tap shoes" of Mumble, a young penguin born into a nation of singing Emperor Penguins. Unfortunately, Mumble can't sing a note...but he can tap dance something fierce! Mumble's inability to find his "Heart-Song" means that he can never truly belong, or more importantly, win the affection of his beloved Gloria, one of the most sought-after penguins in the nation. Following the general storyline of the film, the player will be able to experience life from the point of view of Mumble; in exploration, music, dance and interaction with the friends and enemies of the penguin's world. You will become Mumble from fluffy toddler to confident adult as you belly-slide, kick, break, swim and dash through the enormity of Antarctica. The playful and lively music soundtrack complements the exciting rhythm matching game play and two-player dance-off competitions. Mumble will leave the colony an outcast, but return a hero, using his unique toe-tapping talent to save the Emperor Nation!

Features:

  • Experience life as the accidentally charming Mumble! Your goal is to win the heart of Gloria and save the Emperor Nation. Step into Mumble's happy feet starting with his tap dancing birth, his harrowing escape from a hungry leopard seal, his fiesta-filled friendship with the Adelie Amigos and finally to his climactic encounter with humankind.
  • Tap Dance to distract enemies and woo Gloria! Face off against different opponents to unlock new areas and earn new dance moves.
  • Playful and lively soundtrack of music in the memorable styles from the film including rock, disco and country allows for exciting rhythm matching game play. Dance encounters with memorable characters like Lovelace and Gloria while collecting songs to create a custom soundtrack.
  • Belly-slide, kick, break, swim and dash through the enormity of Antarctica. With Mumble's sleek and aerodynamic penguin form, navigate the sometimes perilous but beautiful tundra in water and on land.
  • Multi-player Family Mode features two-player dance-off competitions, rhythm matching swimming challenges and belly-sledding action.
  • Faithful to the film. Experience your favorite environments and characters from the film. NPCs include Memphis, Norma Jean, Lovelace, Adelie Amigos, Seymour, Noah the Elder, Albatross, Elephant Seal and Ramon. Also, discover the reason behind the shortage of fish!
  • Complete 28 missions in 5 different locations to win the heart of Gloria. Explore, belly slide and dance through Emperorland, Adelieland, Land of the Elephant Seals, Forbidden Shore/Whaling Station and the Zoo.
  • Character growth: Play as Mumble the adorable fluffy toddler, the molting teen, and the confident young adult with unique game play for each age.
  • Pick up collectibles such as fish, snowflakes and trash to aid in your quest for a heart song. Collect songs for the jukebox, snowflakes to unlock characters, grace notes to correct your dance moves and turbo squid to boost your speed while belly sledding.

Happy feet? Isn't that the Imax cinema thing with the dancing penguin?

Maybe the feet are covered in blood and because of that they dance.

It's one of those games that's like, you know related to the article in WiRED saying: "The only thing worse than video games based off of movies is video games based off of games". I hate to tell you this, but it's true. However, it MIGHT be good. Lord Of The Rings 3 was really good.

I could swear Happy Feet has something to do with a dancing penguin. Is this gonna be a dancing game or something?

TehB0n5lyK1n9 said:

It does have something to do with the penguin and nothing to do with blood on feet. I saw it in a preview on March of the penguins.

Lord Random said:

Oh I do not wanna be reminded of March of the Penguins. I had to watch it on the last day of school this year. So anyway, most likely it'll be a dancing game or something, wouldn't you agree?

Lord Xenu said:

Actually I did read somewhere that this game was gonna have penguins. So I think LordRandom is correct. But I love penguins.

Lord Random said:

Judging by the new screenshots, I think it might feature penguins. Just maybe.

quartzlcc said:

Duh it's penguins. I knew before the screens, and I have a penguin plush too! I WUV penguins! Looks like DDR judging by the screens. Creepy.

Awesome! I want to make them dance!

I love penquins but I wouldn't buy this game. It's an adventure game that you dance in??

Lord Random said:

Everyone here who absolutely loves penguins raise your hands now. *raises hand*

Hey said:

Even though they look cuddly in the movies, penguins are kind of gross looking in real life. Except for the babies.

Avatar

Lord Random said:

Penguins gross? Must've been a dead one that you based that opinion from. Okay so the adult ones aren't really cute but they still at least look better than walrae.

r2d2 said:

Must have for people who love March of the Penguins.

quartzlcc said:

Yeah, it's definitely penguin DDR.

That One Guy said:

I think they should have just made DDR for the Wii instead of this. That's just my opinion though.

Unknown said:

It's a movie game.

Jhett said:

Dude, penguins rock. I'd give anything to have a penguin roommate that I could carry anywhere in a bookbag. And I could understand him. He would be a laid back penguin and his name would be ted, much like the CAD penguin. Ah, those would be the good ol' days.

p-nut said:

Adding penguins to a dancing game was the most creative and cool idea yet!

wii-mote dude said:

Well, this sounds interesting. Wonder how they're going to integrate the DDR thing with the controls? For the wii-mote, I mean.

Hey said:

Eww, Robin Williams turns my stomach.

DarkVic said:

What were the developers thinking!

Super-Dooper said:

I wonder how you would play this, I mean if it's a dance game how would you use the wiimote? If there's a mat, then that's a whole different story.

WiiFan15 said:

I love Penguins and I love DDR! Oh and Jhett same thing here except he would be Jeff. And no I'm not high or on acid right now. I think.

Must..have..wii said:

Penguins + Dancing = Christmas morning.

DarkVic said:

It has good graphics, I'll give it that.

Robin Williams is the voice of the Genie in Aladdin and Fender in Robots. He's also Mrs Doubtfire and the inventor of Flubber.

wii-mote dude said:

That's nice, what does this have to do with anything here?

Jhett said:

Man, I want a penguin right now. Ted the penguin. Hopefully I can somehow make him on the mii's, but alas, there are no animals in mii's I think. Sigh.

I just saw a commercial about this, it's going to be a movie.

rawrdude said:

Someone must have hotwired the poor penguin!

Avatar

Hey said:

If they hotwired him, they would have to climb in him like a car and drive him. I think you're mixed up with the definition of hotwiring. My penguin will be named Dan and it'll actually be a dog. Who gives me high-fives. And finds hot girls for me to get makey-outy with.

Does this game come with a wireless dance mat like ddr? If not this game will be boring.

I think the penguin in the first screen is very fat. Very very fat. Poor fat penguin.

It looks like DDR, so I don't see any problems.

Sonic Fan said:

I want to see the movie, but I wonder how the game will match up.

wiifan said:

Why don't they just label the game dance dance revolution and say it's for the playstation? Seriously I can't see myself buying this game.

Ekaj185 said:

DDR wasn't that good, get over it.

Epsilon said:

So, it's a video game based off of a Disney (?) movie with a DDR style only without the dance pad. What do you think Super Kirby? Super Kirby: NERWEEHAUHORTNEGNUH! *explosions*.

Master Foot said:

Is there blood and killing? Kids would love it.

Scooby!_Jew said:

DDR= Dance of Dumb Retards. I thought Midway made better games than rip offs of successful games?

Avatar

Sonic Fan said:

Master Foot, there is so no blood or killing in this one.

Darn I want to see penguins kill each other. I think it would do well.

Hey, you know in the rumours it said Nintendo might be strapping wiimotes to feet, wonder what it's gonna be like! Also the graphics for that look just like the film (yes it is originally a film).
