GameSpy: Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure Preview

GameSpy writes: "When one attends an EA press event, there are certain things that you expect to see. A whole mess of sports games, something to do with The Sims, maybe a new Harry Potter title... that sort of thing. Sure enough, all those things were present at the company's recent Summer Showcase event. Yet we weren't prepared to see what might be considered the breakout game of the show: Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure is an original title for the DS that combines 2D platforming with a puzzle game.

Henry Hatsworth is a professional treasure hunter of the stuffy, old British man variety (old-timers may be reminded of Commander McBragg from the old "Tennessee Tuxedo" cartoons). During one of his final expeditions, Henry finds a legendary golden bowler hat that rips open a doorway between the real world and the puzzle world when he puts it on. With that, Henry sets off on an adventure that spans two worlds and two videogame genres."
