The program is very easy to follow and with the cartoon-like scenes and characters, younger children can easily follow the action. Generally, the puzzles are easy to solve but if you do run into a problem, other game characters are always available to lend a helping hand. With the easy to follow directions, even children at the low end of the intended age group can enjoy playing the game. Unfortunately, older children will probably find the puzzles less stimulating and may finish the game in a very short period of time. The music and sound effects are varied enough to keep kids interested and the backgrounds and graphics are generally very well done.

But since it says “For Kids 3 - 8” on the box, parents can take comfort in the inevitable effect this multi-layered game will have on their youngsters. Although the game doesn’t change, new findings will likely occur with repeated play, and favorite characters will be revisited with glee.
