The game revolves around Po, a giant panda who dreams of becoming a great kung fu fighter. Unfortunately his weight and clumsiness makes this ambition seemingly unattainable. However, soon he finds himself going on a journey to save the land from an evil snow leopard named Tai Lung. But also joining the fray are the forces of the Great Gorilla and the Imperial Golden Croc Gang, bent on capturing the Jade Palace's treasures. Also, unlike the film, the Furious Five are captured by various gangs only to be saved by Master Shifu.
Kung Fu Panda is a game intended mainly for children based on the movie Kung Fu Panda. Players initially control Po, learning various fighting techniques and special moves. In some parts of the game you have to complete the tasks as another character. After collecting a number of coins at the end of each level, the player has the option to buy upgrades to Po's moves and health, as well as a different set of clothes. Eventually, as the player progresses through the game, they will be able to unlock other characters including Master Shifu and members of the Furious Five, a team of elite fighters each with their own fighting styles and minigames. In addition, the player will be able to use objects and weapons when fighting. Furthermore, before each new level, Po narrates the continuing story, while the words are being scrolled up on the screen.
