THQ and Disney Pixar’s UP the Videogame Preview

UP 2009-05-15 18-41-56-40 

THQ was kind enough to send me over some stuff pertaining to their latest game UP, which is based on the new Disney Pixar movie of the same name. So I’ve got information, a bunch of screenshots and in-game videos that I grabbed for you to check out. The game is primarily a kids game of course, but I had fun playing it. UP is a platform style game basically with aerial and water based levels as well included to mix things up, along with a multiplayer mode thrown is for extra added fun. So read on to learn more…

THQ also sent me over a cool UP branded aluminum water bottle, very nice of them, and it’s a nice quality bottle as well, it even has a carabineer and compass on it.

THQ Disney Pixar Up The Videogame

Movie: May 29th 2009
Game: May 26th 2009


The Game:
The Up video game will take players on an exotic adventure with Carl Fredricksen and his young sidekick, Wilderness Explorer Russell, as they set off on a wild journey through the undiscovered jungles of South America.  Players will be able to experience all four main characters from the movie — Carl, Russell, Dug the lovable dog or Kevin the prehistoric bird — while playing as a single-player or with a friend cooperatively throughout the entire game.  Players will encounter exciting, new environments as they navigate through treacherous jungle terrains, battle dangerous creatures and trek the slippery slopes of the Amazonian Tepuis.  In addition, the game also features multi-player game modes, including an epic level that will allow up to four players to compete in aerial combat. 

For more information on the Up video game, please visit

Information on the rest of THQ’s line-up of family-friendly titles is also available on

The Movie:
From Disney•Pixar comes “Up,” a comedy adventure about 78-year-old balloon salesman Carl Fredricksen, who finally fulfills his lifelong dream of a great adventure when he ties thousands of balloons to his house and flies away to the wilds of South America.  But he discovers all too late that his biggest nightmare has stowed away on the trip: an overly optimistic 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer named Russell.   From the Academy Award-nominated director Peter Docter (Monsters, Inc.), Disney•Pixar’s Up invites film goers on a hilarious journey into a lost world, with the least likely duo on Earth.  Up will be presented in Disney Digital 3-D in select theatres. The film is due for release on May 29, 2009.

If you read the description above you’d know there are four main playable characters in UP, Carl the old man, Russell the little boy Wilderness Scout, Dug the dog and Kevin the bird.

As I mentioned in the intro, UP is primarily a platform game, but it’s three dimensional and does take advantage of the latest video cards with several options for taking advantage of things like Anti-Aliasing.

While playing UP, you’re not just playing with one character, you’re actually playing with two, and there are points that you’ll need both to accomplish a task to continue on in the game. For instance Carl can climb up on a ledge and use his cane to pull Russell up since he’s too short to reach, or you can use Russell to boost Carl up to a ledge that he can’t reach. It can be played single player or cooperative, in single player you need to switch between the characters. The AI will take over the character you’re not playing and for the most part knows what to do, it seems fairly ‘smart’.  Russell is a Wilderness Scout, or a Boy Scout basically and he knows a few things about being stuck in the wood or the wilderness. Russell starts off with a mirror that he can just to re-direct the sun at would-be attackers like snakes and porcupines that get in the way, as you play you’ll collect more things as well that you’ll need to help you continue on.

and here’s the video to go along with those screenshots above:


Graphics are decent, they’re not realistic, this is a kids game after all, but they look pretty good.

and here’s the video that goes with those screenshots:


The controls take a bit to get accustomed to at the default, luckily though they can be reconfigured in the settings. It’s also a bit disconcerting  when you’re switching characters it’s kind of hard to tell who you’re controlling at first.

I’ve got kids and they sat still and quiet while I was playing UP, so I know this game will do well with children, it’s bright and colorful and cute, all of the things a kids games should be.

So if you’ve got kids be on the lookout for both the game and the movie, and if you don’t have kids head on over to the official website and grab the demo to try it out, it’s a fun little game really.

    I actually have a question not a comment and hope you can help me. My daughter got this game for her birthday but she is having problems getting past chapter 10. This is the part of the game where the player has to follow Dug (the dog) to get back to the house. I think the player has to use Kevin (the bird) somehow but what I do not know. The problem is she (and I) can not figure out how to get over to the next ledge to follow Dug. Please help.

    Thank You

    how can i solve the puzzle in chapter 15

  4. carol
    June 7, 2009 at 11:20 am

    Use Kevin. Kevin can pull a crate backwards as well as push it forward. Move the crates to the first and second slot and then the rocks become even with the ground Russell is standing on. Move Russell to the second rock and then, using Kevin again, pull the first crate backwards and then push it to the third slot. Then Russell can get across to the other side.

    June 11, 2009 at 8:19 pm

    Hey, the damian post from before was alittle wrong, on chapter 15 when you have to get the house over. what you do is use the old man and over to the right you will see a slanted rock and keep on jumping on the rock and you will be able to get up on top. then use the old man to hit the bats with the rock. next use the kid and get on the one end of the rock so you can use the old man to jump on the other side of the rock so the kid can get up top so he can through the rope down

    solved chapter 15. ( very tough ) ( the one with the bat )
    do the following
    1) get russel and carl over to the other side ( there is no need to let russell / carl to get hit by the bat )
    2) see the see-saw there? and see the stone on a platform ( right ) ? set the see saw in such a way that russel and jump and hook onto the platform ( with the white stones at the top ). It should be / <= this direction and not \ <== not this direction . set as right of the see -saw up . get rusell to walk ( not jump ) to the right side. and QUICKLY JUMP to the stone platform . u’ll be able to hook to the platform and walk to the white stones . Use ur stick ( russell ) to chase the bats .

    3) get russell to stand on the left side of the see saw ( note that carl is still @ The top and the see saw allows carl to jump at to allow russell to fly up .
    4) BINGO u shld be able to complete !!!

  22. andrew
    June 15, 2009 at 11:26 am

    solved chapter 15 !!!
    1) set the see saw such that it is / >> platform with the stones .
    3) notice that the platform beside the see-saw has stones
    4) get carl to use his stick to whack the bats .
    5) a side note , u may have problems getting carl to the see -saw as the bat will still attk him . if this happens, get russell to walk to e left side and let him take the dmg while u control carl !
    6) after u use carl to hit the bats , get russell on the see saw ( left side ) and carl should jump down and this allows russell to fly up to the left .
    7) BINGO DONE !

    to solve chapter 15 with Dug and the bats you need to first enter the cheat code carlheavyweight in the main menu and then use the teeter totter to get Russell up on the cliff. i got past that but now I am to the second place puzzle that needs to be solved with Dug where Dug opens the gate and I did that, but cannot figure how to move the crate stuck in the corner. I don’t know if I need another cheat to do this.

    June 20, 2009 at 10:10 pm

    if you want to kill that snake you have to find in control menu the mirror control for Russel, than you can blind it with pushing that specified button…go settings —> control menu than move down with arrows util you find the ATTACK button than look at player 2, who is Russel…than use that button, or change it…its simple…

    i need help trying to get passed chapter 15 because how does russel get the house over the second crack?

  40. Kari
    June 24, 2009 at 2:53 am

    To get over the house over the second crack on Chapter 15, do these steps in order.

    1. Get them both to the other side of the crack.
    2. Get the teeter totter to where the right side of it is pointing up, towards the white pebbles on the ledge on the right.
    3. I was playing with my daughter so she had Russell all the way in that corner to the very left, she was zapping the bats. Not sure how you would manage that with only one person playing.
    4. Get Carl on the teeter totter and you don’t run at first, you kind just inch up and then have him make a run for it, he’ll grab on with his cane.
    5. Carl then kills the bats with the golf club and pebbles.
    6. Russell gets on the left side of the teeter totter, Carl jumps down and launches him up.
    7. Russell gets Carl across the vines with the rope and Carl climbs up.
    8. Carl and Russell both push the crate down off the ledge.

    Once that’s done Russell can now walk over the crack with the house. Sorry it’s a big long but seems like a lot of people were having trouble with this (I know I was) so I thought I’d write it out clearly. 🙂

  45. Kari
    June 25, 2009 at 4:38 pm

    Arvael I’m not sure which part of Chapter 9 you need help with but if it’s the crate part here’s what you do:

    In the beginning of the level you turn into Kevin. Kevin then knocks that rock over so Russell and Carl can cross. Once they are across and at that pink mark, look to the left there is a circular rock sticking out a bit. Hop over the water, then hop over the second part.

    Russell will need his pick ax thingy, just get Russell up there, Carl jumps on Russell and swings on over. They then get to the rock where Russell has to lift up Carl, Russell gets on the teeter totter, Carl jumps on it and Russell goes up.

    Then pretty much the rest is easy 🙂

    If you need help with a different part of the chapter let me know.

  46. Kari
    June 25, 2009 at 4:52 pm

    Iris there isn’t any trick or secret to passing the wall, you just have to make quick moves when the bat passes you. On the first part of the bat I make sure that when he first passes to the right, I go very fast left and then down.

  47. Arvael
    June 25, 2009 at 6:55 pm

    Thanx for the help, Kari…
    But i’ve stucked at a different place..
    I passed that teeter totter thing. So, in the sequence you pass those bats, right? on the hill, up there…you find a box, which you must push down.. so
    my question is : HOW DO YOU PUSH THAT CRATE FROM THE TOP??
    because i tried with both caracters, but nothing…please help me push that crate from the top of the hill. I must see DUG..he is my favourite character!!! i’m waiting your answer…HELP ME!

    Arvael there is that first crate (up on top) that I told you about and then there is a darker crate (not on a hill) that you push to raise the rocks that Russell crosses. After Russell crosses those rocks he goes around and then he pushes the lever that opens the cage that has two porcupine looking things. Carl and Russell then go through there and that is the end of the Chapter where they meet Dug. I didn’t come across any other crates besides those two mentioned, so I’m not sure where you are stuck. Will you describe the color and look of the crate that you’re stuck on?

  57. Kari
    June 28, 2009 at 4:01 am

    Iris in the beginning of that wall you go up, right and jump over two parts of thorns. You DON’T jump to the circle looking rocks. Wait until the bird is going to the right and when he first passes you, go really fast down and left. If you keep trying you’ll get it eventually 🙂 I’m not sure if you’re playing alone or with someone but on this part I like to complete it by myself that way I know when to stop Russell and move him.

  58. Kari
    June 28, 2009 at 5:06 am

    Aren do you mean the two brown crates that are up on top there? If so, right before you get there Kevin is at the lower part of the screen. Russell has to boost Carl up there to where Kevin is. Carl turns into Kevin then jumps across to the crates. Kevin moves a crate into the first spot, put Russell with the rock onto the first platform area. Kevin then moves the second crate into the second spot, put Russell onto the second platform. Kevin then takes the first crate out of the first spot and moves it into the third spot, now Russell can go across. That’s the only time Kevin is used.

    I cannot follow the hints that you neat guys & gals have written.
    I’m stuck with getting Carl on the see-saw while being attacked by bats.
    What should Russle do while Carl is trying to jump from see-saw to high rock where white stones are?

    I have a hint re: Chapter 21: How to attack/defeat “lead dog” atop tall rock far left of screen.
    At some point the attacking dogs throw a big rock which Russel can pick up and put onto sea-saw later when needed.

    1. I think you first have to fight the dogs on the ground. Carl & Russell can push them off the edge by Carls hearing aide noise or Russels zapping.
    2. Carl steps carefully onto see-saw then runs and jumps ontop of big rock lower right of screen, close to house above.
    3. Russell then picks up rock by pressing O when he gets close to it and puts rock on left end of see saw.
    4. Carl jumps dpwn onto end of see-saw and rock on other end of see-saw is launched at lead dog ontop of tall rock.
    5. Fight dogs on ground and repeat the Carl/Russel/rock being thrown from see-saw at lead dog.
    6. Keep repeating this pattern and you dereat lead dog.

    July 7, 2009 at 5:26 am

    I forgot about this! Sorry guys lol. It’s late here but tomorrow I’ll get on the game and look exactly at what spots you guys need help with 🙂

    There are a couple things I can recall off the top of my head though. Mary, not sure if you’re still stuck there but you don’t need to get Russell and Carl over there too. Russell boosts Carl up there, Carl turns into Kevin and then ONLY Kevin jumps across to the two boxes. Kevin alone solves the puzzle. My 6-28 post explains how to solve it 🙂

    Dorothy not sure if you’re still stuck there either as it’s been a few days since you’re post but if I recall correctly after you go really fast and then left, you’re going to go down, right and I think at some point you have to jump over a space. But after you get down to the spot I mentioned, the end is very near.

    Could u help me with Chapter 23: rescuing Russell inside The Spirit of Adventure.
    I can’t get the dog through the door! I have been trying for a few days and just can’t see anyway to jump through that hole! I have loved playing this game but when I’m stuck I’M REALLY REALLY STUCK!!!**
    Thanks for listening to my complaining . : (
    Tanya : )

  77. RC
    July 7, 2009 at 7:31 am

    In chapter 23, it’s not supposed to get dog jumping through the hole in the door. Carl can not jump because he is holding a lantern. Use dog to move the box (pull and push) so that carl can step on it, then push to the other end, and carl will open the door.

  78. Dorothy
    July 7, 2009 at 10:35 pm

    Thanks Kari! Got past chapter 10 finally. Now I am stuck on chapter 13 which I see no one has apparently had problems with :-(. I don’t know how to take the house with me up on that block. I can’t jump or anything when I have that rock which is attached to the house. Does anyone know how I can take the house with me?? I feel stupid!!!

  79. Kari
    July 8, 2009 at 2:50 am

    Dorothy I’m pretty sure it’s Chapter 15 that you’re having trouble with. That is the Chapter where Russell has to carry the rock everywhere. The previous posts state how to pass the hard parts. The only other tip I can give you is Carl does a lot of the work in this level since Russell has to be the one to carry the rock. If you need any other help let me know. 🙂

    Jim, I’m not sure where exactly I got the magnifying glass but I hovered over my Chapters in the menu and it looks like it may come in Chapter 24.

    Michael not sure which part of thorns you’re stuck on but I’ll just put down all the directions. Once you’re on the rope don’t go up (you can’t jump upward over vines), go right. There is that first bird that’s going back and forth, when he goes to the right and is out of the way, really quickly go up, jump to the left and go up before the bird comes back. Go right and jump over the vines. The second bird is going back and forth. In order for you to do the next part you have to be really quick. The second the bird starts going to the right, quickly jump over the two vine areas and go up really quickly. Go to the right until you’re at the edge, when the bird starts going to the left, go down. Go left and when the third bird passes the rope to the left, quickly go down, right, jump over the vines and you’re done.

    Tanya, RC put how to complete the part you’re stuck in Chapter 23 🙂

    I’m sure I missed somebody, so respond if you need help. 🙂

  80. Kari
    July 8, 2009 at 3:02 am

    Dorothy I figured I would put how to get up there. The first area Carl jumps up there, pulls the lever, Russell gets on there and Carl pulls the lever so it goes up. The second area, Russell walks onto the moving rock with the house and sets the house down. Carl and Russell push the crate onto that little spout area, Carl jumps on the crate, pulls Russell up there and the both jump across to where the house is.
    My 6-28 post at 5:06 post explains the next part and the difficult part after that is explained in my 6-24 post at 2:53.

    Hope that helps 🙂

  86. Kari
    July 11, 2009 at 7:35 pm

    Kathy I’m on the PS2 so I’m not sure if it’s different but once he’s up there on the ledge you just move him forward. Carl will walk underneath and jump across the water and Russell will walk up the ledge and jump over the flower, turn right and then lift Carl with the rope across the vines.

    If you’re stuck at a different part let me know 🙂

      you have to get BOTH Carl and Russell up there behind the yellow crate. Then you hold down ‘H’ and ‘D’ + ‘S’ at the same time to push the crate in the direction you want it to go.

    • jaimee
      November 17, 2010 at 4:04 am

      you have to somehow get Kevin behind the crate to your right next to the spikey plants. you’ll get it eventually. I had a really tough time getting pass that stage.

  108. Alan
    August 12, 2009 at 9:10 pm

    To everyone having problems with Chapter 10 with Kevin:

    When you see Kevin (the bird), you should have Russell on the top screen and Carl on the bottom. If you do, skip the next paragraph…

    If you don’t, just backtrack through the geisers (on a side note, when you get to that first geiser, there is a hidden platform underneath, so when the rock is lowered, jump over to get a picture frame and butterfly). On top, there is a tall rock and tetter totter. Use Russell to boost Carl up on top, then position Russell on the tetter totter’s right side. (You should probably hit the ‘F2’ key so the characters don’t run away from you) Have Carl jump down onto the other side of the tetter totter so Russell gets boosted on top and Carl on the bottom of the screen. On top, Russell should be getting through the screen with his pickaxe swinging away and Carl on the bottom jumping through the geisers.

    Now the part with Kevin, use Carl to stand next to Kevin and hit ‘H’ so now you’ll have control of Kevin. Use Kevin to jump from that middle rock onto the top platform to be with Russell. With Kevin and Russell finally on top, hit the ‘Esc’ key and select ‘Drop Out’ so the game goes back to 1 player mode and the computer plays the other character. Now position the characters to the left of the metal crate and hold down ‘H’ and push to the right till the crate falls down. Once the crate falls down, you lose control of Kevin and have control of Carl again. With Russell and Carl, pull/push the metal crate towards you as far as possible, then push the crate to the right till it falls down and covers the spikes so you can now proceed onto the next screen.

    (Note: when I did this, I was playing 2 player mode with my girlfriend and the game glitched and we we not able to move the crate together to cover up the spikes, so we spent hours of trying everything possible, to find out that sometimes the game glitches in 2 player mode when it requires 2 people to move the metal crates at the same time. So when we see a metal crate, we drop out onto the menu page so it’s 1 player mode to push/pull those crates, and after it’s in place we hit F2 to go back to 2 player mode to continue our game.)

  109. tami

    Help! Still trying to get out of chapter 15. I’m at this part below. I currently have Russell in the top left hand of the screen, and Carl in the top right hand. I’m thinking they need to be reversed but I don’t know how to do that.

    Now it’s another gap and this time we need to use Dug, Have Russell leave the rock on the ground at the gap. Now have CARL run the right and switch up as Dug. As Dug, run up the ramp on the right. Jump across the wide gap forward and then head left and get to the jump before the fence doggie door only he can walk through.

    If I switch Russell with Dug, we can jump Dug over from the little ledge to the bigger one. I’m using a keyboard so I use the AWSD keys. But then Russell isn’t available to kill the bats. If you
    switch Carl with the Dug like they say above, I can’t get Dug to jump over to the bigger ledge without falling. In this case I’m using the arrow keys to try to jump him.
