Summary[]

Intro Story[]

At a Hollywood-themed place called Movieland, Chris Silverscreen is in the middle of directing his film Romancing Meowzilla. In a scene where the actor Junior and the actress play as a newlywed couple in a church scenery things were going well until the backdrop falls down and crashes through them, causing Chris to panic. Soon his boss, Mr.Fanny shows up and tells him that the movie had better be a huge hit, 'or else'. Chris asks him "Or else what?", Mr Fanny replies by saying that he'll be fired. Unable to cope with this, Chris calls out "HEEEAALP!" Commander Kahn sends out the agents to help the distressed director.

First Scene[]

The agents arrive by flying to Movieland in jetpacks. The level begins with Chris telling his crew to start the film regardless of Mr.Fanny's threat, starting at the wedding scene. If things are going well, the scene goes very well with Junior saying his lines perfectly and Chris marveling at his work shouting "OOOH LA LAA!" If things are going okay, then Junior will have a hard time saying his lines and Chris just observes closely. If things go poorly, the whole scene will end up a total disaster as the priest rips the book in half, the actress gets frustrated, and Junior just fails in delivering his lines and Chris gets very agitated. At the first break, The scene concludes with the priest character saying "You may kiss the bride." to Junior. When Chris tells him to kiss, Junior and the actress stare at each other beautifully and Mr. Fanny appears with hearts covering his eyes telling Chris and his crew to keep up the good work. If the first section is failed, then instead of the actress, an ugly man tries to kiss a horrified Junior with Mr.Fanny angrily shouting "You call that acting!?!"

Second Scene[]

The level begins as the crew next starts the chase scene. If going great, the seen goes very well with the bride cheering and Junior on the horse moving faster and Chris admiring the acting. If good, the car and horse aren't going very fast and Chris is eyeing the scene. If poorly, everything is a disater with Chris agitated, Junior trying to feed the horse which was resting and the crew zooms in on the scene. If beat Junior and the wife ride away. If failed, Chris gets flattened by the horse with an angry Mr. Fanny.

Third Scene[]

The level begins as the crew move on to a scene where Junior and the wife are being chased by a boulder in a cave-like setting, a la Indiana Jones. If things are going well, Junior runs quickly with the wife in his arms, the boulder far behind and Chris shouting "Brillant!". If the effort is average, the boulder keeps pace with the two actors and Chris looks on. A poor effort leads to the actors (along with the crew and equipment) being squeezed by the boulder, leaving Chris annoyed. A jump occurs at the end of the scene. If the section is passed, Junior and the wife clear the boulder, resulting in Mr. Fanny seeing dollar signs in his eyes. If the section is failed, Chris is crushed in a cartoonish fashion, leaving Mr. Fanny annoyed.

Fourth Scene[]

The level begins as the crew film a scene involving the film's title character, Meowzilla. A man portrays Meowzilla while wearing a suit on a miniature set, similar to the original Godzilla movies were made. The player's efforts going well results in Meowzilla rampaging through the miniature set, Chris encouraging the actor by shouting "Go Baby!". Average efforts see Meowzilla playful moving around with what is meant to be the wife in its paw as Chris looks on. Poor efforts see the actor remove the Meowzilla head and snack, much to Chris' annoyance. The level then shows the crew dropping a mechanical paw (meant to be Meowzilla). Success means that the paw destroys part of the miniature set, much to Mr. Fanny's delight. Failure means that the paw crushes Chris and scatters the crew, leaving Mr. Fanny livid.

Last Scene[]

The last scene involves a romantic sunset scene. Great, good and bad scenes are similar to the wedding level - Junior will say his lines perfectly, have a hard time trying to say them or mess them up completely, with Chris' expression changing to match. If the player succeeds completely, Chris will be cheered on at the premiere of Romancing Meowzilla and he thanks the fans for their support. A newspaper report indiciates that the film has become a huge success, of the kind Mr. Fanny wanted from Chris. If the player does poorly, but completes the level, there is low enthauism for the movie at the premiere, which puts off Chris. The newspaper suggests the film might become a flop. If the player fails, Romancing Meowzilla is cancelled and a furious Mr. Fanny fires Chris for both failing to deliver what he wanted and for not being able to make the film in the first place. Chris is left looking upset admist destroyed scenery, with the crew worried about their future.
