Based on the highly-anticipated feature film from DreamWorks Animation, Over the Hedge is a wildly adventurous game that takes players on an interactive adventure beyond the story seen in the film. Assuming the roles of RJ the raccoon, Verne the turtle, Hammy the squirrel and Stella the skunk, players turn a suburban neighbourhood loaded with dangerous obstacles and traps into their own personal playground. Numerous puzzles and mini-games keep fans busy as they switch between two of the four main characters or engage in two player co-op with friends.
The fast-paced adventure takes place in more than 10 new locations not featured in the film including the exterminator’s lab, the sewers, and the wild Western theme park. In an attempt to free captured friends and rob the humans of their beloved food, players master each character’s special moves and learn how to use them to work together. Special moves include: RJ’s “golf ball barrage,” Verne’s “spinning shell attack,” Hammy’s “Hammy time” which allows him to streak around and overcome opponents in the blink of an eye, and Stella’s “stink.” Further to the storyline, gamers can unlock fast-paced mini-games like “Golf Cart Derby,” “RC (radio-controlled) Car Racing” and “Suburban Mini Golf”
