Buy from Amazon.comThe Activision video game for Madagascar The Movie is to be released on May 24th 2005, and is based on this summer's animated entertainment from Dreamworks Pictures (the Shrek folks). Versions of the game will be available on most platforms, including PC CD-Rom, Microsoft's XBox, Playstation 2, Nintendo DS, Game Boy Advance and Nintendo GameCube.

The movie stars Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer and Jada Pinkett Smith, and sees animals escaping from the Central Park Zoo, and heading to the island of Madagascar. Along the way they meet the island's native lemurs, and soon discover "it's a jungle out there!".

The game will feature three mini-game bonus chapters, including a "Lemur Rave" where you can test out your rhythm skills to cool jungle beats, and Melmen's helicopter neck-fling ammo includes coconuts and lemurs!
