In typical Jackie Chan style, our titular hero is enjoying a break from his travels, and looking after his uncle’s antiques shop. One day, a very large and very rude customer barges into the shop and demands some mysterious magic scrolls. After a small altercation, and the near-total destruction of the shop, Jackie realises that his rest time is over. These magic scrolls must not fall into the clutches of The Dark Hand!

Based on the hit animated TV series. Players take on the role of Jackie Chan, international martial arts superstar. GBA-owning fans of Chan the man are plunged headlong into a world where puzzle-solving and hand-to-hand combat are plentiful. So get into Jackie's world, where a unique blend of comedy and kung-fu action is guaranteed, all lovingly displayed in colourful, anime-style animation.

True to his movie and cartoon persona, Jackie Chan Adventures: Legend of the Dark Hand highlights the man’s amazing athleticism, humour and real-life superhero qualities. The game features Chan as an amateur archaeologist, embarking on a worldwide quest to find the magic scrolls and defeat the evil organisation called the Dark Hand. Along with his niece and apprentice Jade, they travel the globe using their combined intelligence, wit, humour and martial arts skills to locate seven legendary portals and keep the sinister demon sorcerers from entering the earthly realm.
