Video Game / Lilo & Stitch: Trouble in Paradise

Go To
Disney's Lilo & Stitch: Trouble in Paradise is a Crash Bandicoot-style 3D Platform Game developed by Blitz Games for PlayStation and Windows that was first released on June 14, 2002. The PlayStation version, published by Sony Computer Entertainment, is titled Disney's Lilo & Stitch for the American release, dropping the subtitle.

The game is a somewhat modified retelling of the original Lilo & Stitch film where the titular duo must traverse around Kauaʻi while avoiding enemies and obstacles. One notable thing about this game is Lilo having the ability to use voodoo powers to attack enemies for some reason. Despite receiving a very mixed reception on its initial release, the game was re-released as a PS one Classic in Europe on November 26, 2009, and March 8, 2011, in North America.

Not to be confused with Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise or the film Trouble in Paradise.

Tropes relating to the game include:

  • Adaptational Badass: Lilo now has voodoo powers she can use to attack enemies.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Weirdly, the sunburned ice-cream tourist appears as a hazard in one level, apparently having developed a taste for kicking any little girls running along the beach. Even weirder, Lilo's Limit Break involves magically summoning the exact same tourist out of the sky to squash whatever's directly in front of her.
  • Adapted Out: The Grand Councilwoman is not seen in the game, except for film clips.
  • Advancing Wall of Doom:
    • One level has Stitch running away from Jumba and Pleakley when they try to capture him.
    • Another level has Lilo trying to get away from Cobra Bubbles, who wants to take her away from Nani.
  • Aliens Speaking English: It's Lilo & Stitch. It comes with the territory.
  • All There in the Manual: David is 23 years old, which is only found in the instruction manual.
  • American Kirby Is Hardcore: A variant that's also platform-specific; the above-pictured cover shows a vicious 3D-rendered Experiment 626 in his spacesuit tearing through a chainlink fence and the cover is from the North American Windows release. It's also the only unique cover made for the game. PlayStation covers, North American or otherwise, just use stock art of the titular duo on Lahui Beach, though Stitch has still torn part of the cover in the North American variant. Some international variants of the PC version use the artwork from the European cover of the Lilo & Stitch GBA game, which puts it closer to this trope but not as much as the North American Windows cover.
  • Checkpoint: They are marked by cameras.
  • Covers Always Lie: The North American Windows release cover shows Stitch in his four-armed true form wearing his spacesuit. He doesn't wear the spacesuit in the game and sticks to his two-armed disguised form throughout.
  • Ground Pound: Lilo's default air attack, called "Bum & Bash" in-game. As mentioned above, her Limit Break is to magically summon an extra-strength one with the ice-cream tourist.
  • Hair-Trigger Explosive: The game has red jars (with an X on top) that behave the same as the Crash Bandicoot TNT crates: by touching one, it will go off after a while. Lilo can quickly pick a red jar before it explodes and drop it in another place. It restarts the timer before it explodes, hopefully near some enemies (it will explode instantly if you attack it, obviously).
  • Hollywood Voodoo: Lilo's basic attack is to hold a glowing voodoo doll out at her enemies to defeat them.
  • Market-Based Title: As noted above, the American PlayStation release drops the subtitle, which is bizarre considering that the PC version was released in the U.S. with the subtitle still attached.
  • Misplaced Wildlife: Echidnas, which feature in this game, aren’t native to Hawaii.
  • Must Have Caffeine: Stitch can drink coffee to give himself a power boost.
  • Power Creep, Power Seep: Lilo is given voodoo powers so she would be able to defeat enemies in the game.
  • Rolling Attack: Stitch uses this after he drinks enough coffee.
  • Save Point: They are marked by mailboxes.
  • Spin Attack: Stitch uses this as one of his attacks.
  • Super Spit: Stitch can spit at enemies to deal damage.
