Jewel Thief type game for the wii, controlled with the wiimote, with custom levels, VS modes, and online functionality.

Back Story

You are "Rex Simpleton" the world famouse adventurer and lady boy.

You've just received news that your sister has been taken captive by your arch nemesis, "Gil Murchular". To save your sister, you and your 2 brothers Max and Tex will have to venture on a quest for the world famouse jewel "The Pooping Monkey" as demanded by Murchular.

The only problem is, that no body know where it is in the world and it could just be a myth.

Game Explained

  • User has 3 men (lifes) to clear the game.
  • Using the wiimote you have to gather items while dodging the guards or by defeating them by using power ups if found.
  • If caught by a guard you loose a man (life) and all items are returned to their starting points and the level starts again.
  • If all 3 men are caught its game over
  • All major items must be cleared to pass the level.
  • On Passing a level all captured men are freed (start again with 3 lifes).
  • Each item is worth various amounts in $, you need to collect a total of $100,000,000 to pay the ransom fee and save your sister (finish the game).
  • On completing all levels in a stage you must defeat the boss to get to the next stage.
