Mastertronic are excited to bring Britain’s best-loved duo to your PC! Wallace and Gromit’s Grand Adventures series features two cracking double packs which combine the rich and imaginative storytelling which is the trademark of the quirky inventor and his faithful canine sidekick with the critically acclaimed writing, gameplay and unique format pioneered by Telltale Games and Aardman Studios.

As Wallace and Gromit celebrate their 20 th anniversary, you have the chance to join in their ambitious adventures, play as Wallace or Gromit to solve each mystery in the special Grand Adventures series on PC and interact with a charismatic cast of friends and foes. Each episode involves simple point and click gameplay that provides hours of family-friendly fun! Featuring two brand new stories with the same slapstick humour, cinematic visuals, and charm that fans of the Wallace&Gromit films have come to love, Wallace and Gromit return in Grand Adventures– episodes 3 and 4 with two new episodes Muzzled! and The Bogeyman. The double pack completes the Grand Adventures series with the same familiar panache that makes Wallace and Gromit Britain’s best-loved comedy duo.

Monty Muzzle, the town newcomer is holding a fundraiser to rebuild the local dog shelter in Episode 3: Muzzled! However, Gromit discovers that Monty’s intentions aren’t exactly charitable. Can you help foil Muzzle’s plot and rescue Gromit’s canine friends?

In Episode 4: The Bogey Man Wallace gets admitted to Prickly Thicket, the oldest country club in Lancashire. When Wallace and his faithful caddie, Gromit get embroiled in a club dispute, they must fight to save all they hold dear.

Mastertronic’s Product Director Neil McKenna comments, We are pleased to introduce the second double pack of the Grand Adventures series with two cracking new episodes. You can join in the adventure by playing the part of the lovable Wallace or even his ever faithful– and long suffering pal– Gromit. These adventure games are not just for fans of the series, though they may end up turning you into one! With two enthralling adventures in one box, this is set to be a well-loved family favourite!”

About the Mastertronic Group Limited

Mastertronic is one of the best known electronic entertainment brands in Europe. It pioneered the European console market with its launch of the Sega Master System, invented the value retail sector and built an international development and publishing operation under the Virgin Mastertronic label. The brand was subsequently re-launched as The Mastertronic Group Limited in 2003 by founder Frank Herman, together with Andy Payne and Garry Williams. The Group now leads the European value publishing sector through its retail brands M.A.D. (Mastertronic Added Dimension), Sold Out (the UK's largest-selling budget operation, acquired by the Group in 2004) and PC Gamer Presents , a unique quality-assured brand in association with the leading games magazine publisher Future Publishing. The Group also offers, through its wholly owned subsidiary The Producers Limited (also acquired in 2004), a 'cradle to grave' total turnkey service for physical product, from marketing through packaging and warehousing, to retail and digital distribution. More recently in 2006, Blast Entertainment was launched as part of the group and has rapidly become a leading video game company exclusively aimed at the younger end of the Children’s market. Blast develops new content based on recognised family friendly licenses from films, TV, classic characters and toys and publishes on a variety of formats including PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS and more recently, Nintendo Wii. In 2007 Just Flight , and its sister company Just Trains , the leading worldwide simulation specialists, were acquired by the group. Just Flight was established in 1995, and within three years became the world’s largest publisher of flight simulation software outside of Microsoft, with a reputation for high quality products, published by genuine enthusiasts. With casual gaming becoming more popular in the PC Market, Mastertronic launched Everyone Can Play in 2009, a casual gaming label dedicated to games that can be played by everyone and which combine simple rules and easy access with exciting and addictive gameplay. In the same year, Great Indie Games was launched - a new label created specifically to bring Independently developed games to a wider audience, with the critically acclaimed World Of Goo released as the debut title in July 2009.
