A 3D platformer game, players control Yellow M&M's in an effort to escape from their miniature counterparts (M&M minis), however red and green M&M's also make an appearance. On July 20, 2002 the game was released in Europe by JoWood Productions. This game is very similar to M&M's: The Lost Formulas except there is not a Math Zone and the name was changed. Fans of the M&M series were delighted when it was announced Billy West would be providing the voice of Red, he was quoted as saying 'I am so proud of providing the voice of such an iconic character, I phoned Micheal up as soon as I got the news and he was obviously delighted.'
