Wallace & Gromit Episode 2: The Last Resort - 800MSP

This is the second installment of the Grand Adventures series that features Nick Park's claymation duo Wallace, an absent-minded inventor, and Gromit the stalwart companion.

The Last Resort picks up where Fright of the Bubble Bees left off, but isn't a sequel but rather a self contained story of it's own. It all begins when W&G are about to head of on vacation in nearby Blackpool when plans are spoiled by a sudden rain storm and the cellar of their house is flooded. In keeping with Wallace's tradition of get-rich-quick schemes he plots out a far fetched idea of turning the cellar into an indoor resort for the townsfolk.

According to gamespot's preview of the game it will provide about 2-5 hours of gameplay. Wallace & Gromit Episode 2: The Last Resort will be available from XBLA on Wednesday, September 9th for 800MS points.
