As a re-imagining of the 1996 game of the same name, characters like Kaida, the Blue Ants, Red Ants make a reappearance.
A race of aliens called "Hymeno's" arrived to earth many centuries ago. The Blue Ants, hymeno's alligned in the color blue, are more peaceful and friendly to the earth inhabitants while the Red Ants, hymeno's alligned in the color red, are more hostile and thirst for world domination. Prior to the game's events, the Red Ants and their leader Comrade Vexter have invaded Sunny Villa Island taking all the inhabitants prisoner. Skip and Sqak both try to stop them, but were eventually defeated and captured with everyone else.
Locked away inside a steel crate in of one of Vexter's prison ship, Sqak believes all is lost until the ship suddenly gets hit by a massive laser beam that sends the duo's crate falling out of the ship and crashing into the bottom of a rocky canyon. Once escaping, Skip and Sqak notice their friends Robin, Imp, Blatly and Makayla all being locked away deep underground by the Red Ants and eventually freed them. After escaping to the surface, the heroes decided to take refuge into a temple to meet up with the Blue Ants. Their beautiful leader, Queen Kaida, tells the gang about how the Blue Ants are peaceful to the earth and try to protect it from Vexter and his Red Ant army for so many years until the Red Ants eventually overpowered her forces with stronger weaponry and Vexter now has control of Blue Ant Kingdom as well. Kaida also introduces the gang to the weapon the Blue Ants used to free them from Vexter, an ancient laser machine called "The Peace Giver". Since the Peace Giver used up all it's energy, the gang agreed to help Kaida sabatoge many of Vexter's schemes while the Peace Giver recharges.
The gang's first mission is to destroy a high security prison that's holding Mayor Cheatsy and many critters prisoners but getting thru the prison's tight security undetected will be impossible. Robin plans to shut down the security by building a device but it needs two very powerful "P0W3R" batteries that Vexter has. Vexter gave on P0W3R battery to Gizmo, a rat who resides in a dangerous junkyard; and the other to Mincemeat, a pirahna fish who owns a mine in a sea trench. Skip and Sqak retrieve the two P0W3R batteries for Robin's device and use it to temporarily shut down the prison's security. Even though Mayor Cheatsy and the critter prisoners have been rescued, taking down the prison still wasn't enough to stop Vexter. Kaida suggests they need powerful weaponry to fight against Vexter's forces, so they decided to recruit former demolitions expert Gary the Worm who has now retired and works as a librarian down in Loose Leaf Oaks. Skip and Sqak rescued Gary from the Red Ants and brought him back to the gang's hideout. Gary instructs an idea to defeat the Red Ant army by using the Peace Giver to destroy their mothership. To do so, Skip and Sqak raided an industrial train owned by a vicious fry cook, Chef Bigmouth, who is delivering alien weapons right to Vexter's headquarters and the gang managed to install the Peace Giver onto the train in time.
Sqak speed dashes ahead of the train with Skip on his back to the Red Ant Mothership to destroy many of the defenses before the train arrives, only for both of them to be captured by Vexter's cyborg mechanic, Dr. Hopkins, who locks the two of them deep in his lab while their friends are all taken prisoner by the Red Ants. Vexter then steals the Peace Giver to use it as a weapon to attack and seize power over many places around the world (now dubbing it the "Peace Killer") and leaves Dr. Hopkins to eliminate Skip and Sqak. The two survive Hopkin's traps and defeated the mechanical jackalope before escaping the mothership. The Blue Ants wage war against the Red Ants to rescue Queen Kaida, who is being held hostage by Vexter as an attempt to force the Blue Ants to surrender.
