“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game” is a side-scrolling beat ’em up game based on the Scott Pilgrim series of comic books by Bryan Lee O’Malley, tying in with the release of the film of the same name. The game was first announced at Comic Con 2009 in July 2009.It was released on PS3 on August 10, 2010, and on Xbox Live Arcade on August 25, 2010.


Scott Pilgrim is a loveable loser whose life is turned upside down when a mind-blowing delivery girl named Ramona Flowers starts popping up everywhere, even in his dreams. Could she be his true love? But the path to Ms. Flowers isn’t covered in rose petals. The League of Ramona’s Evil Exes stands in the way. To get the girl, Scott must not only defeat the seven evil exes, but also take responsibility and become a better person


Up to four players can play as Scott Pilgrim, Ramona Flowers, Kim Pine or Stephen Stills (along with the unlockable character NegaScott and the downloadable character Knives Chau), who must battle through seven levels in order to defeat Ramona’s seven evil exes. Characters have their own individual movesets, which can be expanded upon by gaining enough experience, and are also able to use weapons. Each player has Heart Points and Guts Points, the latter of which can revive players if they are knocked out, or be used to perform special moves such as summoning Knives Chau or the unlockable assist character Mr. Chau. Defeating enemies earns coins which can be spent in shops to purchase items that can replenish health or boost stats. Certain items can be taken ‘to go’ to be automatically used when the player runs out of health.[6] Players can also enter Subspace areas which act as bonus areas where extra coins can be earned. During co-operative play, players can revive fallen comrades at the cost of some money, give each other health or money and simultaneously taunt for a combined attack.


Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game was co-developed by Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Chengdu. The game’s art direction and animation was headed by Paul Robertson, whom the company contacted by e-mail.[Robertson had previous experience working on the 5th Cell series Drawn to Life and created Pirate Baby’s Cabana Battle Street Fight 2006, an animated side-scroller game film.Robertson was responsible for designing and animating the game’s sprites, effects, and other aspects. He felt he had “the most creative control” on any game he has worked on, but that he was still restricted by the source material, pleasing the publishers and producers, and programming limitations.Chiptune punk band Anamanaguchi performed the soundtrack for the game. Bryan Lee O’Malley, Scott Pilgrim series creator, and Edgar Wright, director of the film adapation, have also been involved in development.O’Malley came to Ubisoft and discussed with the development team how the game’s narrative and flow should be handled. He also drew several sketches on which the in-game cutscenes are based. According to O’Malley, he was initially approached by Telltale Games to make a Scott Pilgrim adventure game, but he declined as he could not see it as part of that genre.
