Quiz show game coming to GameBoy Advance

Just when you thought you'd seen the back of the Y2K quiz show craze, up pops another videogame promising to let you win virtual money. This time it's the turn of the GameBoy Advance to enjoy (endure?) the delights of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, with the handheld adaptation due out some time later this year. Once again Hothouse are in the driving seat, but this time it's Zoo Digital who will be handling the publishing duties for the game in the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. Punters can look forward to a pixellated rendition of the famous Millionaire studio set, along with all the traditional graphics from the TV series and lots of tiny text to squint at. The usual selection of life-lines will be on offer to help you through the game's thousand plus new questions, while the annoying theme music tinkles away in the background. And as if that's not enough to drive you insane, a multiplayer mode is also being promised, giving you the perfect opportunity to drive friends and co-workers up the wall as well. Whether the game will reach the dizzy heights of the original Who Wants To Be A Millionaire or flounder at the bottom end of the charts like most of last year's quiz game crop remains to be seen, but in the meantime you can clap your eyes on a batch of early screenshots of the game to get yourself in the right mood. What's that, you don't want to look at them? Are you sure? Is that your final answer? You wouldn't like to phone a friend first? Related Feature - Who Wants To Be A Millionaire screenshots (GBA)
