The game for Microsoft Windows is a series of mini games based on the events of Book One.
Game overview Edit
The game begins with overview of the events preceding the game with Katara narrating.It opens in the Northern Water Tribe, where Aang excitedly talks about his plans to go penguin-sledding with Katara. Once he arrives at the village, Katara tells Aang that Master Wei is looking for him. He tells Aang to investigate the disappearance of a Waterbender named Hiryu. Aang goes to a cave where he finds a Waterbender's pouch, much like Katara's, and a gear near a large hole. He returns to the village and returns both to his master. Not long after that, the Fire Nation launches an attack led by Prince Zuko, wanting Aang captured unharmed. During the battle, Katara is captured and Zuko retreats with her in tow. Before they leave, though, Sokka and Aang encounter a machine blocking their way to Appa. They're able to defeat it, but they discover the machine was made by the Fire Nation, which means that they are becoming more powerful and dangerous than ever.
Aang and Sokka follow Zuko's ship on Appa to a village in the Earth Kingdom, where they learn Katara is being held in prison. They steal two Fire Nation soldier uniforms, and sneak into the prison disguised. While there, they help a village struggling with poverty and a shortage of food and supplies. While rescuing Katara from prison, they discover that a person called "The Maker" is being forced to create machines for the Fire Nation, and so they attempt to free her. They defeat the jailer guarding her, but they can't find her in her cell. However, they find a clue of another supposable attack on an Earthbending training camp.
Team Avatar arrives at the camp, where they find Tyro and Haru are being attacked by machines. The trio intervenes, and saves the Earthbenders. Tyro reveals to Aang that their own village member, Yuan, has also been disappeared during the fight. Haru decides to join the team to help find his friend. Once they reach a magical grotto, they encounter a bear creature and are forced to fight it. Once they defeat it, it transforms into the Forest Spirit, who tells them to go to Omashu and tell Bumi about the machines.
Their journey takes them to Omashu and with the help of its king, Bumi, who gives them directions to a secret hidden island. Before they leave, though, the consul stops them, telling them he won't let them go. Katara and Sokka tell him that if he lets them go, the Fire Nation will follow, but he cares little for that, telling them he's a part of a plan that will ensure the safety of the Earth Kingdom and he will make sure all of them die. They manage to defeat him and realize the machines they've encountered before Omashu are meant to replace Benders. They leave the city relatively unscathed when the Fire Nation invaded. Zuko appears seconds after they exit and interrogates the consul who refuses to answer. At that moment, he notices something in front of him and prepares to fight it.
While investigating the mysteries behind the secret island, the gang finally finds the Maker, Lian. She reveals her plans to use her machines to end the war, believing that Aang will not make it in time to finish his training when Sozin's Comet comes. She offers Aang the chance to work with her and her machines, but he declines, having witnessed the damages the machines have done to the other villages. An angered Lian sends a giant machine to attack them, while she makes her escape. Miraculously, Aang knows where she plans to strike next and they pursuit after her.
They go to an inhabited Air Temple where they separate: Aang goes to the sanctuary and the others stay to protect the Air Temple inhabitants. Aang defeats the machines Lian sent to destroy the Avatar statues, but his friends are captured during that time. He returns to the Air Temple and follows the tunnel the Geo-Tunnler left behind to an underground village. There, he reaches a fortress where all of Lian's machines are and Aang's friends are held captive. He breaks them all out and they explore the Fortress and they briefly encounter Zuko who is also held captive there. Aang tries to help him, but Zuko attacks him and nearly falls into a stream. Even when Aang grabs him, he lets go and is washed away.
In the deepest level of the fortress, Aang faces Lian to make her stop her creations. Lian then voices her contempt for benders in general, saying "thinkers should be in charge, not magicians." Believing that division of the elements is the real reason behind the war, her machines would be used to "even the playing field". Sokka, the non-bender in the group, voices his disagreement to her opinion. Lian then calls out the missing benders, including Yuan, who reveal themselves apparently willing to aid her by powering the Ultimation, a war machine capable of controlling fire, earth, water, sound and air.
Team Avatar's united attacks managed to put down the machine. As Aang gets distracted, Ultimation tries to attack him from behind. Katara gets in the way, trying to protect him, but doing so knocks her unconscious. Enraged, Aang enters the Avatar State, and easily destroys the machine, making it topple over on Lian. Haru and Yuan reconcile, and the team leaves the place behind on Appa. Haru asks if Sokka never liked benders as he said with Lian, in which the latter commented that he finds them alright. Katara and Aang then begin to tease him, much to his aggravation.
Meanwhile, on the banks of the stream, Prince Zuko pulls himself out of the water. Grumbling, he exits the scene.

Critical reception Edit
GameSpot gave the game a 5 out of 10, which corresponds to "mediocre" or "merely average", saying the gameplay was too repetitive, but the sound effects and music were soothing and simple. IGN gave a similar rating and review, as did a handful of analogous gaming sites.
- In the level "The Fortress" of the PS2 version, the four nations player there awards a set item for Aang: the Four Winds Headband. However, this item is already earlier in the game from a hidden chest, and the item is not actually given here. That level even reports set items possible to find as zero, not even reflecting this goof.
- As noted above; the set item Soul Iron Band for Sokka cannot be found in the PS2, but is given by the old man who wanted the soap.
- Omashu is stated to be the capital of the Earth Kingdom and is located where Ba Sing Se is located.
- In the cave where she is first confronted, The Maker refers to bending as "magic", the same way Sokka did in the "The Boy in the Iceberg".
- In the PS2 and DS version, the waterbending master is Master Wei, and in the PSP version, the waterbending master is Pakku.
- In the Australian and European versions, the title is Avatar: The Legend of Aang.
- The game features a mini-game called Four Nations, in which items are won from villagers. It is played similar to dominoes, with the numbers replaced by the symbols of the four nations and a special Avatar tile as a wild card.
- This game is the only Avatar game to feature Haru as a playable character, as Toph was not introduced at the time.
- Omashu is located where Ba Sing Se is.
- Ba Sing Se had been mentioned in "The Great Divide" as the capital, but it was never stated where it was.
- The Air Temple is located at the Southern Air Temple.
- It is possible a group of people went there after Aang and his friends visited.
