For the series with the same name, Adrien Agreste (Series).

Adrien Agreste (エイドリアン・アグレスト) is a side-scrolling platforming game developed by Tose, published by THQ and distributed by Nickelodeon Interactive. It was released in 1998 for the Game Boy Color. It is Adrien's videogame debut, also his first appearance in a handheld game and the first installment of the "Adrien Agreste" series This game was created by Nickelodeon(Japan) - the creator of the Adrien Agreste series - themselves; it was developed by his mentors. The game is also available for the Virtual Console of the Nintendo 3DS, for US$4.99.


On the lush, tropical paradise of the Super Adrien Land located in North California(USA), Adrien Agreste's animal friends begin disappearing one by one. When he discovers that the evil scientist, Dr. Drakken, has been kidnapping them and converting them into robotic Androids as part of a plot to collect all six of the fabled Power Stones, Adrien decides it's up to him to save them, and embarks on a quest to free his friends and thwart the evil schemes of Marquessa.

As Mitchell races through the worlds of the island, he is usually tags along with his close buddies Nathan Adams, Barnaby Bernstein, '''Beast Boy''' and '''Brock''' as they engage in numerous confrontations with the nefarious Drakken and his deadly machines, and one by one frees the animals from their android shells and capsules placed at the end of almost every zone. In their final confrontation, the Doctor prepares his last dastardly contraption to end his adversary, but proves no match for Adrien's awesome might, and his machine is totaled. Fleeing with his tail between his legs, Marquessa abandons his laboratory as it explodes, crumbling to scrap, with Adrien narrowly escaping. Following his escape, Adrien finally returns to the vast Grassland where his journey began.

In the game's normal ending, Adrien gives the player an annoyed look before posing for the screen, and Drakken will be shown after the credits juggling any undiscovered Power Stones the player missed, with a "Try Again" message taunting them.

However, if the player succeeds in collecting the six Power Stones by the end of the game, the player is rewarded with the good ending, where the six Power Stones react to one another and release a burst of light before disappearing, rejuvenating the wildlife and nature of the Super Adrien Land, leaving Mitchell astonished before he jumps up towards the screen and poses. In the post credits scene, Dr. Drakken is shown humorously stomping on the "End" text in a tantrum fueled attempt to crush it, to no avail.

Better luck next time, "Drakken"!


The gameplay for Adrien Agreste is similar in most of Nintendo's Mario series and Capcom's Mega Man Xtreme for Game Boy Color. It respects to the other titles released at the time for the Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Color. The player takes control of Adrien, Nathan, Barnaby, Beast Boy or Brock and heads off to defeat Drakken, the "Mad Scientist," and save the world. However, the characters used vehicles for the first time in this game; Barnaby used the Sub Pop submarine in an underwater level, Nathan used the sky pop airplane in the sky and Brock used the Smart car in dungy roads.
