The evil Tlaloc has stolen the moonstones, diminishing the powers of the Moon Juju goddess. It falls to Tak to right this wrong. He's got nothing but his wits and his, um...chicken suit...

Tak and the Power of Juju actually works better as a GBA game that it does on the PS2. While the PS2 version has some fantastically funny animation, the GBA version is more addictive and it is not as easy to get lost in the gaming areas.

Some of the elements of the PS2 version seem a little redundant here though. While it is great fun to jump on the rhino's back and ride around the environment on the PS2, in this version the beasts' inclusion seems to be a little pointless. But there are plenty of other elements that make this an instant hit:

Whack bees nests to ensure that any rogue creatures in your way are dispatched quickly; pick up exploding flowers and throw them at walls - which then collapse; and leap from vine to vine an pretend that you are Tarzan (I even wore a loin cloth and screamed at the top of my lungs ever time I swung through the trees - although that's not essential!)

Tak and the Power of Juju is a great little game which will keep you occupied for quite some time. The only complaint I had was that once you loose all you lives it is sometimes a real trek to start from the beginning of the level.

If you are looking for a good, solid platform game to play on the move, you could do a lot worse than this.
