ARE YOU SPUNKY ENOUGH TO KEEP UP WITH GRANNY!?! FIND OUT WHEN SHE TAKES ON THE GATORS IN A SPLASHY NEW VIDEO/PINBALL VOYAGE!
NAVIGATE GRANNY PAST ROUGH WATERS TO STEER CLEAR OF DANGER!

Granny's no stranger to adventure. That's why she's all set to soak up the scenery with an expedition up the river. But there's undercurrents of danger along the way. Gulping gators and restless spear-throwing natives want to put a dent in Granny's plans...not to mention her canoe! To help Granny paddle safely to her destination, you must overcome the impending risks along the river!

GETTING THERE MAY BE HALF THE FUN...BUT DON'T GO OVERBOARD!

Granny's got her heart set on Egypt...Mexico...Greece and other exotic locations. To make the trip easier, she'll cruise across ammunition and bags of gold along the way. Once she paddles over the ammunition, Granny can use it to overpower the gators and ward off nasty natives. Granny also can collect the gold to use towards toll booth passage that will enable her to sail to safe waters.

HELP GRANNY PADDLE TOWARDS A PINBALL DETOUR!
As Granny globe-trots towards various points across the river, she will approach "pinball entrances." Once she canoes into the entrance, she'll leave the video world behind and encounter the pinball playfield. Here Granny can accumulate a few souvenirs, including ammunition, gold and additional points!

IF GRANNY GOES WITH THE FLOW SHE'LL PICK UP SPEED WITH HER "POWER PADDLE!"
As Granny explores the scenic wonders of the pinball playfield with her flippers, she now has the potential to increase her speed with a "power paddle." All it takes is toppling 5 drop targets to enter the top saucer. Then, when the red oar begins blinking, Granny's "power paddle" is activated for a limited time, allowing her to glide over gators and accelerate paddling power to reach her destination in record time!
