Before you start, there is nothing wrong with being fat, OK? All of us lug around a bit of excess cellulite somewhere, so what is the harm in taking two seats up on a bus or pretending to be nine months pregnant once in a while? After all, if it is good enough for Bernard Manning, it is good enough for you and me.
Roy Fat - Fatman's civilian alter ego - does not have a weight problem. In fact, he relishes his chubbiness, and so does his wife Blobetta. They run a restaurant called the Stomach Building Centre and fill their not inconsiderable bellies with its tasty fare every night.
Fatman is also a bit of a dab hand at inventing and, after he has polished off nine scrambled eggs for breakfast, he plays with his latest creation - the Food Inventing Processor.
Unfortunately, Fatman's obese jocularity is not shared by everyone and he has made an enemy out of Ted Thinsin, mad scientist, junk food manufacturer and all round miserable thin person who steals his fabulous food machine and kidnaps his cuddly wife to boot.
Cue a seven-world-platforming romp through the streets of cartoonland in search of collectables and grub-related bonuses which can help Fatman get his missus and his invention back. The Caped Consumer has a considerable array of weaponry at his disposal, including The Belch, where the victim is subjected to an earth-quaking burp, and The Belly Butt which bounces opponents into oblivion.
It is all extremely tasteless, of course, but you cannot help marvelling at the way Fatman waddles around the 13 levels, struggles to get up and down the stairs and pulls excruciating faces when he unleashes a burp at the baddies.
However, once you have got over your initial delight of his character, you soon realise how thin (arf, arf!) this game is. It is the kind of game you find hysterical when you are deliriously drunk at 3am, but which looks completely cack in the cold light of day.
To cap it all, Fatman has a problem leaping around levels - not just because he is chubby - and there are some glaring bugs which make it look shoddy. This would have been a great platformer, but it is ridiculously overpriced at £25.99.
