"Home Alone" is a series of video games created for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Master System, Sega Genesis, Sega Game Gear, Amiga, PC, Nintendo Entertainment System and the Game Boy and is based on the movie of the same name.


The purpose of the game is to escape the Wet Bandits while bringing all the McCallister's fortunes from the house down to the safe room in the basement. Once all items have been sent down the chute to the basement Kevin must make it past rats, bats, and ghosts he encounters in the basement then fight the spider king so he can make it to the safe room to lock away all his families riches.In the "Home Alone" game for the PC, the player must set up traps to hurt the "Wet Bandits". In the "Home Alone" title for the NES, the player must avoid being caught by the Wet Bandits in 20 minutes.

20th Century Fox played a vital role in converting the movie into video game form. Still pictures of movie scenes are used in the portions of the game that are meant to tell the story about how the "Wet Bandits" plan to invade the house of a young boy whose family is on vacation in Europe (Florida in the Home Alone 2 versions).
