Just Adventure
Rarely in this world is anything truly "fun for all ages," but Pepper would appear to be that exception. I don't know if I'd be placing it on any Ten Best or even Twenty Best list of my own, but I will no longer scoff if I run across it on anyone else's. Really, how they managed to make a game that is a clear knockoff of Day of the Tentacle, that is educational, that has a maze and a slider puzzle, so much fun is truly remarkable.

Originelle Animationen, ungewohnte Grafik-Perspektiven, eine angenehme Begleitmusik, teilweise beinharte Digi-FX und ein erstklassiger Bedienungskomfort mit Richtungspfeilen, Online-Hilfen, auflockernden Quizfragen etc. verwöhnen den Spieler. Einziges Manko der gar nicht kindischen Geschichte - sie ist sowohl sprachlich als auch inhaltlich durch und durch amerikanisch...
