  1. Intended for young gamers it's nice to see that attention was paid to the graphics and control system but the uninteresting gameplay will assure this game will see little action beyond the Holiday season.
  2. Its banality is perfect. Even an inexplicable side-scrolling fish-tank shoot-'em-up level that pops up between the soporific platform stages fails to raise an eyebrow.
  3. While not a bad children's game in the sense of being too hard or frustrating, neither is it a good game, and it won't keep anyone's attention for long.
  4. The difficulty level is a tad high for young players and the gameplay is very repetitive. [Jan 2004, p.160]

    It's a fairly dull game with all of its pieces done well enough, there just wasn't much put into this. And as a game on its own, it doesn't hold up too well.
  6. It's a collect-a-thon that's not so big, not so deep, and not so tall, and it's also devoid of the fun that's craved by all.
  7. There is no reason for such a simplistic, thrown-together game. It doesn't even have any excerpts from the original story! [Spring 2004, p.40]

    A good game in total. But it's not very challenging game. It's a fair and easy game to have fun with. But people who do not like journey around, it's not a good game for them. If you do like those kind of games, i recommend Dr. Seuss' The cat in the Hat. Expand
