Now what is a parent to do when they want to buy their kids something more wholesome but not boring for their Playstation 2? We saw Larryboy and the Bad Apple by Crave Entertainment at E3 2006 (see in our members only video section) and it looked pretty good. The game is due out on the PS2 and GBA on August 8th.

Crave Entertainment, a leading publisher of console videogames, today announced that the first VeggieTales interactive title for videogame consoles, LarryBoy and the Bad Apple, has shipped to retailers this week. The action-adventure game features LarryBoy, the popular plunger-headed crime-fighting cucumber featured in several best-selling videos, in his quest to save the citizens of Bumblyburg from temptation.

The world needs a hero and LarryBoy is that hero! When trouble appears, the citizens of Bumblyburg call world-famous crime fighter LarryBoy! Aided only by his trusted butler Alfred (played with zest by Archibald Asparagus), plunger-headed LarryBoy is everything that his alter-ego Larry the Cucumber is not: bold? confident? relentlessly driven? brazenly heroic. Well, actually, that’s not entirely true. While he tries to create this impression, inside, LarryBoy is still plain-old Larry. LarryBoy attempts to save the day with clever use of his super-suction ears and the many features of the Larry-Mobile. Call him a kinder, gentler, slightly slower superhero!

The game is available for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system and Game Boy Advance handheld system for an MSRP of $19.99.
