Based on DreamWorks upcoming animated film, Over the Hedge the game takes players on an all-new adventure beyond the movie as they assume the roles of RJ, Verne, Hammy and Stella and turn a suburban neighborhood loaded with dangerous obstacles and traps into their personal playground. Numerous puzzles and mini-games keep fans busy as they switch between two of the four main characters or engage in two player cooperative play with friends.
- In over 30 mission-filled levels, gamers can switch between two characters on the fly, or select multiplayer mode to join forces with a friend. Gamers interact with all characters from the film, as well as all-new characters that live only in the game. The fast-paced adventure takes place in more than 10 new locations not featured in the film including the exterminator's lab, the sewers, and the wild Western theme park.
- In an attempt to free captured friends and rob the humans of their beloved food, players master each character’s special moves and learn how to use them to work together. Special moves include: RJ’s “golf ball barrage,” Verne’s “spinning shell attack,” Hammy’s “Hammy time” which allows him to streak around and overcome opponents in the blink of an eye, and Stella’s “stink.” Players move on to gain new abilities that allow each animal to perform advanced combo attacks as well as pick up hidden tools and armor.
- When playing with a friend gamers go on multiplayer co-op quests to fill their wagon with food. They barge through closed windows, fenced-in yards and laser-guarded homes, performing the ultimate heist in order to locate and free captured friends.
- Gamers can unlock fast-paced mini-games like “Golf Cart Derby,” “RC (radio-controlled) Car Racing” and “Suburban Mini Golf” as players take on side challenges to win energy-filled snacks or powered-up weapons and items.
