Surf’s Up is a video game released in 2007 for the GBA, DS, and Wii consoles, developed and published by Ubisoft. It is an adaptation of the Sony film, which is a cartoonish documentary of a penguin named Cody Maverick who has aspirations of being a top surfer. Surf’s Up is a surfing-style game (using mechanics often seen in most skateboarding video games) set at the annual “Reggie Belafonte Big Z Memorial Surf Off” as seen in the film.
Players choose from one of 10 characters from the film to play as (including Elliot from Open Season), and experience various spots on Pen Gu Island, from North Beach, to the Boneyards, as well as Cody’s home of Shiverpool as they progress in the contest. The player is given a set of objectives to meet in each match, including finding and collecting a set number of trophies scattered throughout the level.
Gaining enough points from performing tricks while surfing, and maneuvering through large gates. Each course has a large wave on either the left or right side of the screen that follows the player throughout, allowing the surfer to ride up and perform a trick as well as to garner speed for certain obstacles and ramps.
