Animorphs is a 2000 game for Game Boy Color. It is based upon the popular Scholastic book series Animorphs by K. A. Applegate.

Gameplay[edit]

One of the Animorphs in Coyote morph prepares to fight a Hork-Bajir.

In a manner similar to the Pokémon video games, the object of this game is to fight and defeat various animals and aliens in order to gain the morph (DNA) of that creature.[1]

Development[edit]

The game was developed by Runny-Fun and distributed by Ubisoft. Little is currently known about the game's development history.

Reception[edit]

Critical reception of the game was generally low. Marc Nix of IGN described the game as "pat and boring, but also silly in difficulty at times since there's little guiding your path and no real clue to the strategy." He gave it a score of 3.0 out of 10. Nintendo Power was a bit more favorable in its review of the game, giving it 3 out of 5.[2]
