Geo Adventure: Gree Guy's Returns, released in Japan as Geo Adventure: The Great Geo Power! (ジオアドベンチャー:グレートジオパワー!Jioadobenchā: Gurētojiopawā!, lit. "Geo Adventure: Great Geo Power!"), is a platform game developed by Traveller's Tales and Eurocom Entertainment Software and published by Universal Interactive. It was released in some years between 2001 and 2002 for PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube, Microsoft Xbox and PC. A PlayStation version was planned to release, but It was cancelled.

Geo Adventure: Gree Guy's Returns is the fifth installment in the Geo Adventure series. It is the first platform game in the series not to be developed by "Balls" (who had left the series to develop some Greeny Phatom games) and the first game in series to be released in the sixth-generation. The game's story centers on Gree Guy and Arthur the Aardvark having a plan to destroy Geo Guy, so he need to collect all Geo Tokens to kill Gree Guy and Arthur Read.

Similar to Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly, the game runs on a modified The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker engine, now called Equinoxe, with Abstergo physics engine. A direct sequel, Geo Adventure: Geo Guy Land, was released in 2008.

Universal Interactive Studios and "Balls" announced on December 15, 1998 that a fourth game in the Geo Adventure series would be titled Geo Adventure 4 with a release date for 2000. The plans were cancelled in 2000 because "Balls" ended its deal with Universal Interactive Studios, before development of the game was complete.

After the cancellation of Geo Adventure 4 in 2000, Universal Interactive began a development of Geo Adventure: Gree Guy's Returns. On September 21, 2000, Konami and Universal Studios announced that they had entered an agreement that would enable Konami to publish a Crash Bandicoot game and a Geo Adventure game for next-generation game systems, with Universal Interactive (Vivendi Games) handling the production of the games.

Geo Adventure: Gree Guy's Returns was first shown at E3 2002 under the title Geo Adventure: The Great Escape, but the title was later changed to prevent copyright issues with Ubisoft's Rayman 2: The Great Escape and to avoid with the Geo's World game Geo's World: The Great Escape.


The game received mixed to positive reviews. IGN gave this game 4.0/34. The GameRankings aggregate score was highest for the PS2 version (84%); the others were lower, as far down as 53% on the Xbox. The game was praised for good humor and smooth controls, but critized for awkward level design and various glitches.


Geo Adventure: Geo Guy Land, a direct sequel was released for PlayStation 2, Xbox 360, Wii, Nintendo DS and PlayStation Portable, in 2008. In it, Geo Guy sees Gree Guy and Arthur Read's evil ship to grab Geo Guy and throw him to Geo Guy Land. designer Geo G. was inspired to create the sequel out of his desire to continue Gree Guy's Returns' art style.

The game was originally released alongside Greeny Phatom Galaxy, which used the same engine.
