 Story Summary:

These Beans Need Your Help!

Dr. Robotnik, that malicious master mind of planet Mobius, is always coming up with new ways to menace the world and its inhabitants. Witness his latest plan -- the Mean Bean-Steaming Machine, which changes the jolly folk of Beanville into robot slaves that will help the deranged doctor rid Mobius of music and fun forever.

Robotnik's henchbots are rounding up all the unfortunate bean folk they can find and grouping them together in dark dungeons. Once four or more beans are put in a group, they are teleported to the Mean Bean Machine and a horrible fate!

Here's where you come in: You can group the bean folk and allow them to escape! However, there is only a short amount of time before the dungeon overfills and bursts open. To make things worse, the henchbots have noticed you, and are trying to find ways to short-circuit your plans for good!

It's a dungeon-to-dungeon battle between you and Robotnik's henchbot jailers! You must move quickly and set up strategies to bust each enemy's dungeon wide open. If you succeed, you'll be sent up the line to deal with the wilier henchbots, and eventually that rotten Robotnik himself!

The beans are counting on you!
