In this remake, Skip and Sqak work together to save many islands from being invaded by the Lectroads.
The game takes place in the Peacific Ocean (a parody of the Pacific Ocean) where several islands are the home of anthropomorphic animals.
The little critters are enjoying one peaceful day in their village on the tropical Sunny Villa Island until they are being attacked and locked in cages by the sinister reptiles, Lectroads, and their leader Emperor Dante who want to take over all the islands in the Peacific Ocean. A red bird named Sqak was fleeing from a group of Lectroads until he was rescued by a blue frog who hatches out of his egg. Sqak decides to name his new friend "Skip" and the two of them worked together to explore across many islands fighting Lectroads and rescuing caged Critters. At Fracas Factory, the duo fought and defeated the CEO Dr. Gearz who was working for Dante. At Amazonia Island, the duo confront Dante who sends his lackey Vizer Vego to attack Skip and Sqak, but Vego gets defeated and his damaged hover chair blasts him high into the sky.
Reading a blue print Vego dropped earlier, Skip and Sqak discovered that Dante prepares to destroy Sunny Villa island with a laser machine called the "Island-Tizer" powered by Amazonia's Volcano lava and place his kingdom in it's place. The duo head back to Sunny Villa and busted out their caged friends. Skip and Sqak decide to go stop the Island-Tizer only to get ambushed by Dante controlling a massive robot on top of the laser. Once defeating Dante's robot, the entire floor begins to shatter sending Skip, Sqak and Dante falling deep down the Island-Tizer full of lava. Skip manages to save Sqak and himself while Dante plummets and perishes in the lava. The entire final battle damages the Island-Tizer to explode sending the two falling to Sunny Villa. Skip and Sqak are now heroes of the Peacific Ocean islands.
In a secret ending, once collecting all the collectibles in the entire game, this unlocks the gateway to another dimension full of yummy fresh fruits. Skip and Sqak venture into the dimension and bring all the fruit to Sunny Villa, with Skip feasting in a horde of mango's in delight.
