Budding Romeos and Juliettes the world over will step in the shoes of young buck Felix or hot chick Felicity in a mad dash across town to make their date on time. The pick up and play gameplay makes brilliant use of the Nintendo DS stylus to draw platforms to climb and hop across, dodging the obstacles and loveless misanthropes who get in the way. Run, jump, dodge and slide through hectic scenarios while desperately trying to stay ahead of the clock and rainy weather. At the start and end of each level, heat up your love life with some cheeky mobile phone flirting with the object of your affection, spurring on the desire to reach your romantic, ice-cream filled rendezvous on time.
Along the way, our loved-up heroes will draw, climb and jump their way through the city, subway, park, forest, carnival, beach and more, with each colorful and vibrant area packed with fun obstacles, cold-hearted bad guys and flirty pickups. When the path ahead seems blocked, draw your own with the stylus for an exciting new kind of touchy-feely platforming gameplay, a perfect fit with the amorous The Chase: Felix Meets Felicity. To fan the flames of desire, Felix and Felicity will have no shortage of help in their romantic race against the clock with impassioned advice from love gurus and in-game power-ups including Time-Freeze, Love-Rush, Newton-Bomb and the explosive Love-Nuke. Let nothing stand in the way of true love!
