|LEGO Island 2: The Brickster's Revenge|
5730 LEGO Island 2: The Brickster's Revenge is the Nintendo Game Boy Color version of LEGO Island 2.
The Game Boy Color version of LEGO Island 2 has many differences from the other three versions, likely due to the fact that it was developed by Crawfish Interactive instead of Silicon Dreams. There are no clearly defined sub-games as the player controls Pepper in the same fashion at all times, though there are segments that alter the gameplay, such as boss battles, sneaking past guards to escape an area, and mazes. The Toy feature has been removed, and there are no vehicles to control. There are also some enemies, such as Brickster-Bots, Pirate Skeletons, and Mummies, that will actively chase Pepper, though they do nothing besides knocking him away and off his skateboard on contact. Pepper can pick up Trading Cards, which are then added to his card inventory. Each card contains a picture of a character in the game, and cards can be traded between players with a link cable between Game Boys. While the game is still quite linear, there are sometimes optional side quests that give Trading Cards when completed. Pepper can also pick up and receive other items from characters, which can be used later on in the game or in side quests.
The game opens with the Infomaniac giving Pepper his skateboard, and leading him to the Pizzeria. Papa Brickolini gives Pepper a pizza, and tells him to bring it to the Brickster at the jail. Pepper delivers the pizza, however The Brickster darts out of his cell when Pepper opens it. After a short skateboard chase through the park, Nick Brick gives Pepper a Pizza Chukka, which can fire pizzas. Pepper is told to go to the Information Center to talk to the Infomaniac, but can't, as Bill Ding can't finish the road without a pick axe and the gates to the only other way to the Information Center, the park roads, are locked. Pepper gets a pick axe from Nubby Stevens at the gas station and gives it to Bill Ding, and is granted access to the road. The Infomaniac explains that the Brickster has stolen the Constructopedia, and that they must recover it before any pages are torn. The Police tell Pepper that the Brickster went to Adventurers Island, and that he can get a boat at the Res-Q Center. On his way to the Res-Q Center, Pepper sees a Brickster-Bot, and then falls down a hole in the ground, a trap the Brickster-Bot had made.
Pepper finds himself inside a cave filled with Pirate Skeletons. After using his Pizza Chukka to defend himself and solving series of puzzles involving switches to open doors, he makes his way to a room where he fights the first boss of the game, a Rock Monster. Pepper defeats it, and escapes the cave as it collapses.
Pepper then goes back to the Res-Q Center and gets in a raft. He then enters the Phanta Sea, and finds a swimming minifigure being chased by a shark and pirate captain on his ship. The player can simply pass them by and continue to Adventurers Island, or talk with them and start a side quest. In the side quest, the pirate captain gives Pepper shark food, and Pepper uses it to distract the shark and let the swimming minifigure escape. A minifigure on a small island then comes closer to the shore, allowing Pepper to talk with him. He explains that he needs a shovel to dig up the treasure on the island, however, nothing more can be done at this point. Pepper then precedes to dock his boat at Adventurers Island. Nearly everybody on the island tells Pepper to talk to Señor Palomar, though Pepper can also explore, finding some areas which have hidden Trading Cards, but also spawn Mummies, which Pepper can defeat with the Pizza Chukka. Upon finding the tavern and telling Señor Palomar of the Brickster's escape, Palomar runs to the local prison, which is guarded by Imperial Soldiers and Imperial Guards. Pepper follows him, and is arrested. Pepper escapes from his cell after Pippin Reed sneaks in and unlocks it. Pepper finds Pippin's diary on a table, which mentions an expedition in which an ancient stone building and crashed helicopter were found in the jungle. Also in the corner of the jail is a shovel. After sneaking past the guards, Pepper escapes the prison, where Pippin gives him the key to the jungle gate. Here, Pepper can either go directly to the jungle through the gate, or backtrack to give the shovel to the man on the island in the Phanta Sea. If Pepper gives the shovel to man, the man will dig up the treasure and give it to Pepper; a Trading Card. However, upon returning to Adventurers Island, Pepper will be re-captured and will have to escape the prison a second time before going through the jungle gates.
Pepper enters the jungle, and is immediately attacked by insects and darts from dart guns. Pepper sees the Brickster run into the jungle ruins, and goes after him. He comes out the other side of the ruins, and notices the crashed helicopter to the side of the path. Achu then walks up to Pepper, who sends him to Castle Island.
Pepper finds himself in front of King Leo's Castle. A knight tells him that the Brickster's cohort, Cedric The Bull, has escaped. Pepper sneaks past the castle guards and makes it to the throne room. King Leo sends Pepper to find his daughter Princess Storm, who became lost in the maze, while he secured the castle. After bring Storm to the courtyard, Pepper finds out that Cedric's army has surrounded the castle, but Weezil has been captured. King Leo sends Pepper into the dungeon to Weezil's cell. Weezil thinks Cedric sent Pepper, and tells him Cedric plans to attack that very night. King Leo rewards Pepper for getting this information by granting him access to the treasure room, which contains a large amount of treasure chests holding Trading Cards. King Leo releases Weezil, to lead Pepper to the forest where Cedric is camped. After getting past the guards with the help of Majisto and receiving a Super Pizza Chukka from Rob N. Hood, Pepper reaches Cedric's hideout and battles with him. Cedric is defeated, but the Brickster, who had also been at the hideout, escapes in a space ship. However, a piece falls off of the Brickster's ship, the "Smart Brick". Majisto then teleports Pepper and the brick to the LEGO Island Space Port.
