The Rocket Power kids' latest adventures are drenched with glorious sun in this latest release for the Game Boy Advance - lucky for some! Beach Bandits follows pretty much the same lines as the home console versions of the game, albeit in a 2D, side-scrolling manner.
As the story goes, all the cool kids from Ocean Shores are looking forward to the best summer yet and, even more so, to the Annual Ocean Shores Surf Contest. But as Otto, Reggie, Twister and Sam finally reach the beach they make a startling discovery - most of the sand is missing and the surf contest has been postponed. So it's duly up to the young Rocket Power chaps to get to the bottom of the mystery and figure out exactly who's stealing the sand from the Ocean Shores beach.
Cast into the platform world of Rocket Power, players take control of either Otto or Twister as head through the game. Along the way, a total of five mini-game challenges crop up, including the likes of Squirt Gun, Hockey Puck, Hover Scooter, Rocket Board, and Grappling Hook. Successful completion of the game awards a secret unlockable level that allows you to replay the entire game as Reggie. But it's obviously not secret anymore. Shucks.
