Madagascar on Game Boy Advance is a platformer that is based on the DreamWorks animated movie and not the country, sadly. It has a very similar structure to Vicarious Visions's previous DreamWorks-themed game on GBA, Shrek 2.

Unused Graphics

Not a good hiding place if it's labeled

A box saying "hiding place".

Unused Text

At 0xBABC8 is a leftover from the Nintendo DS version:

Ask your friend to select Download Play 
on their Nintendo DS system.

At 0x7FFFF8 is text that translates to "double speed". It probably refers to Team Baisoku, a group of programmers who are credited on several Vicarious Visions GBA games.

baisoku!

Sound Engine

Hmmm...
To do:
Hex location for the second bit of text?

At 0x7F2938 is a sound engine credit. "B.Wodok" is Bernhard Wodok.
