Cat in the Hat out of the bag

VU Games ships the game tie-in for the upcoming Dr. Seuss-based film.


Hoping to better its previous Dr. Seuss-based game, the disastrous 2000 PlayStation tie-in to The Grinch, VU Games shipped The Cat in the Hat to stores today.

Based on the upcoming Universal movie of the same name, the children's adventure follows the titular Cat (voiced by Mike Myers, who plays the Cat in the film) as he helps a young boy travel through a surreal dimension. The Cat in the Hat will feature a mix of characters from the original Dr. Seuss book, like the Fish and Things 1 and 2, and some new gameplay elements, including the Cat's ability to use his umbrella to fly and to use his hat as a shield.

Rated "E" for everyone, The Cat in the Hat retails for $29.99 and is available for all PC, Xbox, PlayStation 2, and Game Boy Advance.
