In the end, there's not much to say about this one. You have 40 levels to go doing the same thing with different members of the family. You'll go to changing the dialogs from member to member or from one scenery to another. Also you'll encounter different baddies and traps that you must survive. The game will most probably get repetitive, but it will entertain the kids as much those who are "kids at heart"... Still one of the most valuable information about this game is the charity cause that stays behind it. $15 out of the $19.99 you give buying the game will go directly to the Starlight Children's Foundation.
The Tuttles Madcap Misadventures lets you jump through fun and colorful worlds with a hilarious family, all in the name of helping out sick kids. We’re happy to play.

What makes this game good is the story. This family, comprised of parents and two kids, gets into wacky situations, including bargaining with a group of nomad desert people who deliver a Monty-Python-type performance. The hilarious script is a product of Dave Thomas and his Emmy-Award-winning comedy team at Animax Entertainment, and it plays out in comic book style cutscenes that appear between levels. Combine this with bright bold graphics, a catchy sound track, and stellar voice talent, and you have a game worth playing. And through all of the Tuttles' Madcap Misadventures, the game manages to deliver a strong message about the importance of family bonding.
The Tuttles Madcap Misadventures is easy to pick up and play, regardless of your age or skill level. Anecdotally, my 5 year-old enjoyed it, as did I, at 37, though the repetition tended to annoy me more than my son. The game, though, is fun, funny, colorful and keeps you interested in the family's adventure.
