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...

As I have said, Pepper is very funny, but unfortunately the humour doesn't all work. In fact the writers seemed to completely forget about their audience part of the time as the game is littered with Monty Python jokes as well as various other more mature allusions such as cracks about academics. This humour seemed quite incongruous in a game so obviously aimed at pre-teenagers.
