Charlie And The Chocolate Factory Backbone / Global Star 2005

Based on the hit Tim Burton film and the classic Roald Dahl book, you play as Charlie Bucket, the poor lad who wins a golden ticket entitling him to a tour of the chocolate factory of reclusive weirdo Willy Wonka. The only difference between movie and game is that whenever one of Charlie's golden-ticket-holding comrades -Augustus Gloop, Veruca Salt, Violet Beauregarde, and Mike Teavee - is punished for his or her sins (which, respectively, are gluttony, greed, arrogance, and anger) here, you play a minigame to rescue them...or at least make sure that they don't come to too much harm. The minigames are way too easy, even for little kids. They all center on simple tasks like collecting magical lollipops, clicking on mushrooms to save Augustus Gloop from the chocolate river, tilting a table to collect candies, bouncing the blueberry version of Violet Beauregarde around like a pinball, and clicking on Oompa-Loompas in the correct order to start them singing a rowing song. Poor controls make the minigames even harder to endure. You often have to click on a location two or three times before Charlie starts to move, and even when he does get going, the pathfinding is so atrocious that he gets stuck on every gumdrop and candy cane in sight.
