- Wii (launch title)
In this game, Scrat is caught up in the events of the film, Ice Age: The Meltdown and is trying to collect acorns while interacting with some characters, some of whom help him in his quest. Characters which were shown as bit parts in the film are shown usually as adversaries or in the case of one, a songbird a guide to the next nut, though a select number of foes were not shown in the film at all.
Scrat is the playable character throughout the game. The beginning level is Glacier Pass from the first movie. The next levels are a forest, the inside body of the sea dinosaur Malestrom, a mud bog, the Sloth Village, and the Ice Glacier.
Some of the settings are from the movie, and some are made up.
The objective of the game is to collect 1000 acorns in all levels to unlock interviews with the voice actors of the movies and game.
Nintendo DS Version Edit
A Nintendo DS game of Ice Age 2 was released that more closely followed the plot of the movie, with Manny, Sid, and Diego as the playable characters with the objective of freeing all of the animals and scoring points by collecting acorns before the timer runs out. Snowflakes can be collected to expand time.
