LarryBoy and the Bad Apple (PlayStation 2)
|LarryBoy and the Bad Apple|
LarryBoy and the Bad Apple is a video game based on the VeggieTales film of the same name, where Larry the Cucumber as LarryBoy fights temptations to save Bumblyburg before the villainous Bad Apple takes over.
Found in the MOV folder is the Big Idea logo. The game instead shows a different version of the logo.
E3_CREDI.CRE is leftover credits from an E3 demo.

Dialog relating to an "upgrade" appears in the game's voice overs and subtitles. This upgrade was going to be introduced in the LarryCave after Fire Marshal Grape's temptation, just as abilities are given after all other levels.
|alfred_hub_aftertoy_a_01||Fire Marshal Grape has given the orders to clear the webs, and the delivery trucks are on their way. What a joyous celebration it will be!|
|larryboy_hub_aftertoy_01||Thanks for your hard work, Alfred! We make a great team!|
|alfred_hub_aftertoy_b_01||Master Larry, I need you over at the Larry Cave. I've found a way to improve one of your gadgets!|
|larryboy_upgrade_tutorial_intro_a_01||That's great, Alfred!|
|larryboy_upgrade_tutorial_end_a_01||It works! Without your help, Alfred, there would be no LarryBoy.|
|alfred_upgrade_tutorial_end_a_01||Oh, you're too kind, Master Larry.|
|larryboy_upgrade_tutorial_end_b_01||The Bad Apple has lost her a-"peel". I'll "seed" to it, that she no longer tempts the citizens of Bumblyburg again.|
|alfred_upgrade_tutorial_end_b_01||I'd laugh, Master Larry, but I've just received some dreadful news! The Bad Apple is on her way to Baker Lunt's bakery!|
|larryboy_upgrade_tutorial_end_c_01||I'll save the "core-"ny apple puns for later, Alfred. To the bakery!|
In Mayor Blueberry's temptation (internally called 1800world), LarryBoy gets Alfred to add pineapple on the pizza:
|larryboy_1800world_funny_b_01||…and uh, double pineapple…|
|alfred_1800world_funny_c_01||With double pineapple.|
In Baker Lunt's temptation (internally called scifiworld), Alfred was to make this remark:
|alfred_scifiworld_funny_01||Isn't it great, Master Larry? The mayor has chosen me to run the helium balloon booth at the big celebration. I'm so excited!|
| LarryBoy PS2 Unused Cutscene Dialog|
There are so many lines of dialog, it deserves its own subpage!
Balloon Glide Minigame
STR_US.TXT contains text that indicates a planned minigame where you glide into balloons, perhaps an early form of the Darts minigame.
Balloon Glide Balloon Glide Instructions Pop balloons by flying into them! Glide and pop balloons to score points! Blue Balloon = 100 points Red Balloon = 200 points Yellow Balloon = 300 points Green Balloon = Double points for next 3 balloons
SOUNDS.DDF also specifies background music for it, which sounds similar to the music in Baker Lunt's temptation:
Water Spray Minigame
STR_US.TXT contains text of a "waterspray" minigame where you spray rotating targets:
Water Spray Waterspray Instructions Spray the Bad Apple and her guards! Don't spray LarryBoy or Alfred! Close Bad Apple and Guard targets = 500 Middle Bad Apple and Guard targets = 1000 Far Bad Apple and Guard targets = 5000 Close LarryBoy and Alfred targets = -3000 All other LarryBoy and Alfred targets = -1000
SOUNDS.DDF points to background music for the minigame, which sounds almost similar to the classic "I Can be Your Friend" from the VeggieTales episode "Are You my Neighbor?":
Both of the minigames above have level files and scripts on the disc, and they are also referenced everywhere the included minigames are referenced, but ultimately inaccessible in-game. Attempts to play them have failed so far.
