Carl immediately calls Wilbur back to the future, realizing that their world is now under the dangerous control of Emperor Stanley and Queen Lizzie. It is up to Wilbur to fix the time stream before he can go back to pursue the Bowler Hat Guy, events which lead straight-up to Wilbur's entrance in the movie.

Gameplay[ edit ] The game follows Wilbur through 40 missions and 6 different locales, a few of which are revisited in the movie. This machine creates items using Base Components which Wilbur collects during his adventure.
A Breakout like game called Chargeball is both featured in the game itself and as an extra gameplay option. When it comes to the main gameplay, Meet the Robinsons is pretty formulaic, though what's there still feels fine. The game's designers attempted to emulate Zelda's control layout and design, having inventory selection assigned to the d-pad and the ability to target lock and strafe with use of the L button.
Along those same lines, players will auto-jump when hitting a ledge, and be able to pull off context-sensitive moves with the A button whenever close to a ledge, near ladders, or against items that can be grabbed, pushed, or pulled. For camera movement, the right analog stick can be used to pan around the playfield, aiming projectiles in the process with an on-screen cursor.
In general, the game is a pretty solid compilation of everything you'd expect in a third-person adventure. Dungeons are made up of basic object-moving puzzles or platforming mazes, and each one is filled with area-specific baddies and bosses. The main objects include the Disassembler, an item that can rip any enemy or object into parts; the Chargeball Glove, which is a basic distance attack; and the Robinson Scanner, an all-purpose scanner used to detect hidden areas, find weaknesses in enemies, and solve puzzles.
In addition there are the Havoc Gloves and Levitation Ray, two other half-offensive half-puzzle gadgets, as well as a bunch of other hidden items such as action figures, concept art, and blueprints.
Gameplay Exclusively developed for the Gameboy Advance, the Climax Entertainment game features a completely different storyline and uses a mix of side-scrolling, top-view, and flying levels for the Time Machine throughout. Both Wilbur and Lewis are able to create and activate several different inventions by finding invention pieces throughout the levels.

In addition, InventCo Egg-Timers and Gift Boxes are hidden throughout; collecting enough of these will unlock special "Goodies" on the main menu. In addition, a "Battery" meter serves as both a life gauge and a power gauge for the many different inventions.
The events of the game take place immediately after the movie, rather than before like in the Buena Vista Games version.
Inexplicably, this is also the only Meet the Robinsons game which features Lewis as a main playable character.
Due to the limitations of the Game Boy Advance, no voice-acting is featured.
Nintendo DS version The Nintendo DS version is a third-person shooter with a simplified version of the console storyline, borrowing familiar game elements, such as the Dissembler and Charge Glove as well as adding exclusive ones. It follows the console version in four different worlds; Egypt, Lizzy, Stanley, and finally the Bowler Hat Guy's robotic hat- Doris, that ensures a final battle for the future.
