Just Adventure
Some other strengths that struck me about this game include the full closed captioning or subtitling option, not just in English but in Spanish as well. The game can also be played in Spanish too. In addition, a player could choose to play the game in one language and have the subtitles in the other language. The game includes a full walkthrough as well as less detailed spoilers in one of the two Readmes. Lastly, and most impressive for a children’s game, it includes two different endings that reflect how the player responds to a moral decision at the end. Well done, Plaid Banana!

Review Corner
This game is extraordinarily appealing and beautifully designed. Children will likely need some help, as they will get stuck from time to time. Persistence, curiosity, and willingness to think, will be rewarded. Although the game can be tackled independently, it is also ideal for more than one child to attempt together.

Quandary
As intimated, most of the puzzles involve finding the right objects and using them correctly. They are all intuitive, and memory and recognition play a big part. Clare is 9 and found the game too easy, so whilst it is recommended for 5 years and over, the puzzling is probably best suited to the lower end of the continuum.

Ein Spiel, das Spannung und Spaß liefert aber keine so eindeutig positive Heldenfigur in Captain Dreadly, der doch ziemlich egoistisch und wenig hilfsbereit daher kommt und zum Glück von seinem grunzenden Freund Moop oder einfach den Gegebenheiten immer wieder in die Schranken gewiesen wird. Nicht gerade ein Charaktervorbild für die lieben Kleinen. Dies und die ausgesprochen kurze Spieldauer bieten nicht genug Grundlage, warum man gerade dieses Spiel den anderen für diese Altersklasse vorziehen sollte. Sollte man die Pyjama Sam und Freddy Fisch-Serien bereits durchgespielt haben und nach weiterem Spielfutter suchen könnte Moop & Dreadly ein kurzfristige Überbrückungshilfe bieten.
