Greeny Phatom: The Revenge of Gree Guy is a 1999/2001 video game developed by "Balls" and published by Ubisoft. It was released for the PlayStation, Dreamcast, Greeny Arcade and Nintendo 64 and based on the show Greeny Phatom, as well as two games for the N64 (also released in 1999), Rayman 2: The Great Escape and Tonic Trouble. The Dreamcast version is the first video game to use the GeoBob Engine 2, while the PlayStation version of Greeny Phatom: The Revenge of Gree Guy is also the last game to utilize the original GeoBob Engine.

The game originally received PlayStation 2 and Xbox ports, but they were cancelled and reworked into Greeny Phatom: The Gree City Revolution (Greeny Phatom Extra Large on GameCube and Xbox). A DS version was released under Greeny Phatom DS in 2005. This game would become the first in the Greeny Phatom: The Revenge of Gree Guy trilogy, and was followed by Greeny Phatom: Attack of the Stickmen. A third sequel, Greeny Phatom: The Greetrix, was released in 2011.

Plot

One day, Gree Guy decides to rip off Greeny Phatom. Little Guy, enraged, decides to get the show cancelled. But however, the Dr. PBS clones (later re-appearing in Little Guy and The Mystery to New York and Greeny Phatom The Movie 3) arrive, thus invading the world.

Versions

Nintendo 64/GameCube

These versions all were developed by Ubisoft Montpellier (Ubisoft Shanghai on GC) and used the Rayman 2: The Great Escape engine. As a result, the gameplay is similar to Rayman 2: The Great Escape and Tonic Trouble. Little Guy has to use his magic Stick to beat up enemies.

PlayStation and Dreamcast

"Balls" developed these. The gameplay is different and instead of only Little Guy , players can choose Dr. Beanson, Little Guy 2, and others.

PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade

In 2012, Ubisoft released the first two games in the Greeny Phatom: The Revenge of Gree Guy trilogy on the PSN and XBLA services in 1080p HD. This version was similar to the DC version, with voice clips from Greeny Phatom: The Gree City Revolution reused instead of the gibberish the original game had.

PlayStation Network Xbox Live Arcade

A retail disc version of the 3 HD transfers. This included playable demos of Rayman Origins and Greeny Phatom RPG.

Development

Plans for a game began after the release of Geo Adventure 2 in 1997. According to Michael Wildshill and Robert Stainton, the game would utilize a new version of the GeoBob Engine, and it would be based off of the Zits 8 and Toon TV program, Greeny Phatom. Following the releases of Geo Adventure 3: The Rise of Gree Guy and the Japanese release of the Sega Dreamcast, the game would be used for the Dreamcast.

According to Robert Stainton, the game was supposed to pay homage to the 1988 film, Die Hard, but the plan was scrapped.
