In close keeping with the storyline of the film, Planet 51 The Game gives players the chance to immerse themselves in the amazing world of Planet 51 whilst helping bumbling astronaut, Chuck and his new found alien friend, Lem, find their way back to Chuck's spaceship. Not only will Planet 51 The Game relive memorable moments from the movie, but it also expands the vibrant Planet 51 universe with the inclusion of characters, environments and vehicles exclusive to the videogame. The free roaming world of Planet 51 The Game allows the characters to explore on foot, before commandeering vehicles to complete numerous missions enabling Chuck to return home to Earth. Chuck and Lem can take control of hover bikes, taxis, cars, trucks and more to take part in missions involving police chases, cutting grass and even driving angry gorillas to the circus. Planet 51 The Game will also allow friends to compete in head to head races in the multiplayer versions of the game.
Planet 51 the film is a galactic sized alien adventure comedy from the writer of "Shrek" and "Shrek 2". American astronaut Captain Charles "Chuck" Baker lands on Planet 51 thinking he's the first person to step foot there, only to find the world is actually inhabited by little green people happily going about life in a way reminiscent of the innocent 1950s America. Their only fear is that it will be overrun by alien invaders...like Chuck! With the help of his robot companion "Rover", and his new friend Lem, Chuck must navigate his way through the dazzling, but bewildering, landscape of Planet 51 in order to escape becoming a permanent part of the Planet 51 Alien Invaders Space Museum.
