Description

Mr. Potato Head Saves Veggie Valley is a short educational adventure game with point-and-click controls. Veggie Valley has been beset by a terrible drought lately. Even more bad luck arrives as ominous clouds threaten the Country Fair. Mr. Potato Head and his daughter, Sweet Potato, decide to take matters into their own hands, save the fair and bring the clouds to Veggie Valley instead. The player controls both of them as they make their way across the valley, solve puzzles and visit the fair's many attractions.

The game is intended for pre-school kids (less than 7 years) and has relatively simple puzzles. They consist mostly of gathering items in the inventory and using them on other objects from the world. Disguising the two potatoes represents an important element as well. Using the in-game editor, you can replace the eyes, nose, ears, shoes, mouth, add a clown wig, and so on. There are several mini games at the local fair, three of which (called Midway Games) can be accessed directly from the main menu: Funny Photo Booth, Counting Pinball and Match & Catch Fishing. The first is another disguise editor, Counting Pinball is a pinball game that teaches the player to count, while Match & Catch Fishing's main goal is to place pairs of identical fishes in the top jars. Both the mini games and the full adventure have two levels of difficulty.

Similarly to other educational games of the era, the player can interact with many things from the world, not necessarily pertaining to puzzles or story advancement. This can trigger animations or speeches, giving a better idea on what the object actually is. The protagonists' and other characters' lines are fully-voiced.
