"The Emperor's New Groove" is a video game based upon the 2000 film of the same name. Also comes for P.C.

Basics

Kuzco must transform back into a human, and he has to get to Yzma and his palace to do that. But how can he, when he's found himself stuck in a peasant village? You can help! Guide Kuzco through eight levels, each with their own mini-levels, depicted on a map/menu.

He starts in the village, then the jungle at night, the river, the jungle at day, the mountains, the palace, the catacombs, and finally the lab. Upon meeting Yzma, he must race for the potion.

There are also many secrets to be found within the game, each with a little something that would help Kuzco get Gold Coins.

Throughout the game there are many silver and gold coloured coins lying around, which Kuzco must pick up in order to get his Gold Coin. (All the coins in one level. Some coins are in enemies, defeat an enemy, get a coin.)

Life crown

Also appearing in each level, are Wampys which are "continues". If Kuzco's five chance life crown is fully red, and he should die, the Wampys make him healthy again, and he replays from his last checkpoint.

Checkpoints are statue-like objects in the game, which, when Kuzco runs through them, say 'Checkpoint!'. These checkpoints are areas that, upon dying, you start from again.

The amount of lives you have are displayed in a crown-shape above the game screen. The crown has five main areas = lives. Once all are diminished, you start the level over again.

The 'No Touchy' rule in the movie applies to Kuzco in the game. Whenever a guard, bug, bird, plant or other creature touches him, he loses a life. He also loses a life if he falls off platforms into the nothingness. To regain lives, there are full-life refills (large gold crowns) and one-life refills (small red crowns) that help keep the life supply up and running.

Kuzco Idols are red objects that help open doors. To open a door, you must get these Kuzco-Heads. The palace door has a gold Idol. Guards with red helmets carry red idols.

Also, there are potions throughout the game that help Kuzco turn into different animals to get through different obstacles. Watch as he turns into a frog, a turtle, and a rabbit!

Yzma, Kronk, Pacha, Chaca and Tipo, a wise man and a talking bug pop up during the game. Yzma and Kronk don't want you to win (At least Yzma doesn't) but the others give hints on how to play. Listen to them, and they will help you on your way to the Human potion.
