Nicktoons: Movin’ to EyeToy

Gamers can now grab some screen time with some of their favorite cartoon characters in THQ’s Nicktoons: Movin’, the first Nickelodeon game for PlayStation 2 with EyeToy. The title is now available at retail outlets throughout North America.

In Nicktoons: Movin’, players join hosts SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Star on screen by way of the motion-sensitive EyeToy USB camera, which plugs into the PlayStation 2 console. Rather than using a hand-held controller, players use their body movements to guide the action in 13 different mini-games, all based on popular Nickelodeon TV shows including SpongeBob SquarePants, The Fairly OddParents, Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius, Rocket Power and Danny Phantom.

By wildly moving their arms in front of the EyeToy camera, fans can fix Cosmo’s and Wanda’s fish bowl, go for a drive with Mrs. Puff, help Timmy smash robots, go bowling with SpongeBob, aid Danny Phantom in trapping spooky ghosts, assist Jimmy Neutron with a high-powered rocket landing or play a game of street hockey with Otto. Up to eight people can play at a time.
