If your child has any lingering fear of the dark, this is software is a must! Since most of this game is situated in the dark, it provides a safe place for kids to explore the magical world of darkness which turns into a creative fantasy land full of adventures and surprises.

With this Pajama Sam title Humongous have produced a wonderfully entertaining game with an equally entertaining story. It belongs to the Junior Adventure series and is aimed at children 3-8. Maybe the younger end of this age group will need some help, but they won't need any encouragement to keep on playing. It wraps up loads of fun in a story that kids can join in and decide what do next. As with all titles in this series it runs straight from the CD, and there's a good hint file included as well as some in-game hints from a friendly tree.
The story of Pajama Sam is based on the problem that every child comes across, such as being afraid of the dark even in familiar places such as their own bedroom. Plunged into the dark, toys, furniture and other decorations in the room can quickly become frightening objects in the imagination of children. Hopefully with Pajama Sam, children will have a chance to overcome this feeling. While highly enjoying the game, your child, boy or girl will readily identify him or herself with Pajama Sam as he becomes more confident and grows brave.

Avec Sam Pyjam, Humongous nous gratifie d'un excellent point & click ne reniant aucunement la bonne réputation acquise grâce à ses précédentes productions. L'atout principal du soft est sans conteste son ambiance des plus prenantes, et vous ressentirez un réel plaisir à vous plonger dans cette atmosphère générée notamment par des décors et des musiques de toute beauté. Avancer dans les différentes zones au moyen d'un gameplay simple et efficace sera en outre un véritable plaisir. Le seul petit bémol concerne la durée de vie bien trop faible qui, associée à une replay value inexistante, pourra en rebuter certains. Mais ce défaut est largement contrebalancé par les multiples qualités de ce soft que je vous conseille vivement d'essayer si un jour vous avez l'occasion d'en faire l'acquisition.
Overall, this is an exceptional game which will provide plenty of challenges for grade school age kids.

Pajama Sam is a graphically beautiful program, with true cartoon quality animation. The problem solving skills required are excellent exercises in critical thinking - but for the older end of the recommended age spectrum, and beyond.
