About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games...

THQ and Nickelodeon today announced that The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius: Attack of the Twonkies for the PS2, GameCube and GBA has shipped to retail outlets throughout North America. A television movie with the same storyline will air on Nickelodeon on November 11, the same week it releases for home video/DVD.

"Our long-standing relationship with Nickelodeon enables us to deliver kids interactive products based on the TV programs they love," said Tiffany Ternan, Senior Vice President, North American Sales and Distribution, THQ. "The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius: Attack of the Twonkies has great entertainment value, allowing kids to play a videogame version of the TV movie featuring an innovative and cool inventions system."

"We are excited to release The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius: Attack of the Twonkies before the movie airs on Nickelodeon and hits home video and DVD," said Steve Youngwood, Vice President, Nickelodeon Media Products Group. "This launch strategy will provide videogame fans a sneak peek at the TV special, while providing a compelling gaming experience for Jimmy Neutron fans."

In The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius: Attack of the Twonkies, Aliens from Twonkus-3 -- the annual comet that passes over Retroville -- overrun the town and threaten everything in their path. When music plays, the aliens become agitated -- multiplying and growing to tremendous proportions. It's up to Jimmy Neutron to figure out combinations of everyday items in order to turn them into inventions that will defeat the Twonkus-3 aliens. The revolutionary inventions system allows players to create more than 28 gizmos, 11 inventions and four super inventions as they maneuver through six episodes spanning 15 levels, including Jimmy's Lab, Twonkus-3, The Neighborhood, Downtown, Retroland and the Final Showdown. Secret gizmos hidden in each level give Jimmy Neutron enhanced power-ups.

Console versions of The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius: Attack of the Twonkies were developed by THQ Studio Australia and the Game Boy Advance title was developed by Tantalus Interactive.
