For the first time ever, the Dr Seuss' The Cat in the Hat game will allow gamers to step into the role of the mischievous Cat and interact with characters from the film, such as Thing 1, Thing 2 and the Fish, as well as encounter opponents created specifically for the game. Unique gameplay abilities, including the Umbrella Glide, the Hat-shield Bounce and the Bubble Goo Gadget, help players to navigate through 13 wild levels in a wacky Seussian world.
Inspired by the film, the game tells the story of Conrad, a young boy tricked by his neighbour, Mr Quinn, into opening the Cat's big red box of Seussian magic, allowing it to escape into the real world. The Cat must help Conrad and his sister, Sally, return the Seussian magic to the box and retrieve all three pieces of the "Crab Lock" in order to lock the box for good. Players will also get the unique chance to explore a world beyond the film, as they navigate through rooms of the house that are not seen in the film.
