This is the 1,900th page on the whole wiki! Special thanks to Dreadblocks for creating the page and achieving this milestone!
Austin Powers: Oh, Behave! is an action video game developed by Tarantula Studios and published by Rockstar Games for Game Boy Color on 18 September 2000 in North America, and on 3 November 2000 in Europe.
The game is a collection of mini-games and features based on the Austin Powers movie series. The game also included Austin Powers themed remakes of Pac-Man, rock–paper–scissors and the board game Othello.
Austin Powers: Welcome to My Underground Lair! is the second video game released for the Game Boy Color. It is a simulation of a computer of Dr. Evil, the antagonist of the Austin Powers film series. There are a few mini-games included, such as Mojo Maze, the Pac-Man-style maze game, Domination (an Austin Powers-themed version of Reversi), Rock-Paper-Scissors, and 'Kin'-Evil, a motorbike racing game whose name is a play on Evel Knievel. It features customizable backgrounds, themes, sounds and screen savers, a movie clip, along with a calculator and simulated Internet with information on the Austin Powers films and the actors.
Why They Both Suck
- Both games have the same features, games, and options. The only difference are the secret games and the theme.
- It features clips from the movie, which is pretty impressive for a Game Boy Color cartridge. But this was before the Game Boy Advance video, resulting in the video and the audio quality being really poor.
- Ear-bleeding music.
- Poor graphics.
- Both of them are practically just Windows 2000 emulators for the Game Boy Color.
- Every time you start the game, you have to wait for 4 minutes.
- The mini-games (the main ones) are just poor, uninspired and unplayable. First one is rock, paper, scissors, which both on those games are the same (with the exception that you play as Austin in "Oh, Behave!" and as Dr. Evil in "Welcome To My Underground Lair!"). Next it's Pac-Man, but with dreadful music and a big maze, and the last one is Othello (but it's boring, duh!).
- The Shagulator from Oh Behave! and the Frickulator from Welcome to my Underground Lair! are just a calculator, so what's the point of using it, rather than USING AN ACTUAL CALCULATOR?!
- In the bonus game on "Oh Behave!", Austin looks like he doesn't even have a chin (According to The Lonely Goomba). As well somehow as Ludwig van Beethoven.
- The bonus game in "Welcome To My Underground Lair!" is a mediocre trials-like game.
- In the game there's an option to turn the computer off, but you can turn the Game Boy off whenever you want, but if you do, the game will tell you the scan storage.
- There's a virus scanner in the game but it does nothing and it's completely fake!
- The bonus game in "Oh Behave!" itself is better than all the other games.
- At least it was something original.
The game descriptions claimed "Collect all four!", however there were no further installments in this series. It is possible that the two other planned games would have been centered on the other characters played by Mike Myers in the film series, Fat Bastard and Goldmember.
