Fatty Bear must help the other toys prepare a surprise party for Kayla. He must find the ingredients for a cake and then make it, find the missing letters for the happy birthday sign and blow up some balloons among other things. The game also includes bowling and piano minigames.

This is an adventure game designed for children aged 3-8 that uses an enhanced version of the SCUMM engine originally developed for Maniac Mansion by Ron Gilbert who is Project Leader, Producer, Co-Designer and one of the interpreter programmers for this title.


Fatty Bear's Birthday Surprise DOS This irresistibly reminds me of a similar scene in "Space Quest" (VGA remake).
Fatty Bear's Birthday Surprise DOS Kayla the night before her birthday

Fatty Bear's Birthday Surprise DOS This three-note melody is supposedly called "Boar" - I don't know why, but I thought I'd share its silly charm.
