Handheld adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's famous Lord of the Rings prequel. Produced by Saffire, the minds behind several GBA titles as well as the Brood Wars add-on to PC's Starcraft, Sierra's The Hobbit is a 2D actioner for the GBA with detailed environments and plenty of puzzling thrown in as well. In it, you play Bilbo as he helps out a band of dwarves led by wizard Gandalf, battle the dragon Smaug and swipe that ring from pathetic old Gollum. The game is presented in a perspective similar to the recent Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge -- a sort of 3/4 perspective, but with more emphasis placed on vertical objects like walls and trees.
