    Join the world famous bear and friends for a fun-filled honey hunt through Hundred Acre
    Wood.


    With winter just around the corner, it's your job to help Winnie and friends find precious
    honey in this enchanting adventure from Ubisoft. A companion to the latest Winnie film from
    Disney, this family friendly game is littered with exciting activities and mini-games. Explore
    captivating environments around Hundred Acre Wood, make exciting discoveries and help
    out friends, but watch out for those mischievous Heffalumps and Woozles!

    You can play as Winnie, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet through five unforgettable,
    birthday-themed adventures. Each character has their own special abilities, like Eeyore's
    butterfly-catching prowess and Piglet's Scary Face mode. As well as old favourite
    characters, you'll encounter a completely new one - Lumpy - created exclusively for the
    accompanying Disney film.

    An easy-to-use control scheme makes Winnie the Pooh's Rumbly Tumbly Adventure
    suitable for players of all ages, but younger gamers are especially catered for with Junior
    mode, which lets little ones interact with the colourful characters of Hundred Acre Wood at
    their own pace.

    • Guide Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet through exciting adventures


    • Explore colourful environments, unlock mini-games and discover hidden items


    • Junior mode to cater for younger players

    Just in time for spring, a lovely game.

    Help Pooh lose weight!

    Christopher Robbin plays diet coach! To get Pooh's mind off honey, Christopher encourages Pooh to think of his happiest memories. These are friends' birthday parties!

    Features

    • Single-player adventure
    • Exploratory Junior Mode
    • Minigames for one to four players
    • Lots of animation and voiceover

    Pooh reasons that if he relives his happiest birthday-party memories, he won't think so much of honey. And so he must solve simple puzzles from those merry days, like figuring out a way to fix a bridge, finding a key to unlock a door and eluding Heffalumps.

    The game beautifully evokes the English countryside. The screen bursts with grassy meadows, colorful flowers (which, OK, look they'd be more at place in a tropical rainforest), sheltering old trees and more, all done in a vibrant pallet. The soundtrack sings with spring sounds like water purling and birds chirping.

    The character models and animations are first-rate, as are the voice talents. Rumbly Tumbly has virtually no screen text; instead, almost every line of instruction is spoken by the beautifully animated characters.

    Even the options screen brims with wonderful animations. Pooh takes an old-fashioned railway handcar to a clearing filled with funny-looking machines for adjusting the sound, centering the picture and more.

    All those animations and voices make for frequent loads and cut-scenes. Fortunately, load times are kept brief.

    In case you have trouble tracking down honey pots, Junior Mode* is a strictly noncompetitive exploratory mode. Pooh sniffs flowers and plays Pooh Sticks, Piglet pets a frog and sweeps leaves, and more. Tigger, Owl and Eeyore join the merriment.

    Rumbly Tumbly also comes with a basketful of minigames for one or more players. In Cookie Maze, you try to grab as many as cookies as possible before the Heffalumps and Woozles grab you. In Catch the Honey Pot, you must do just that before time runs out. In Find the Cookies!, you shake cookies out of picnic baskets, then chase them down. Each minigame has a choice of arenas. Two additional minigames are available if you finish certain objectives.

    Bottom Line

    Winnie the Pooh's Rumbly Tumbly Adventure is one pretty game that perfectly captures Christopher Robbin's idyllic childhood in the English countryside.

    *There's a malicious and utterly false rumor floating around that Junior Mode was originally called Nintendo.com Writer Mode. Don't you believe it. We found all those honey pots. Really.
