Review by Rosemary Young
"If ever there was one, this is a game for fairytale aficionados. It is
aimed at children aged five to twelve and it's a bundle of fun with some
delightful musical interludes; quirky, colourful graphics; excellent animations
and a story that will raise a chuckle or two."
"There is a good assortment of objects to find to move the story along as
well as a few arcade type sequences that should provide some thrills.
Catapulting the characters into the castle tower should prove entertaining and
crossing a flooded dungeon requires a good strategy and some quick thinking as
well. Each time the game is played it changes randomly so there's also a good
deal of replayability. Children can even deviate from the story to look around
and join up again where they left off."
"...Because of the fairy tale nature of the story it likely won't suit
'grown-up' 12 year olds, but younger fairytale fans will have a lot of laughs
although they might need to rely on older siblings to help out with the arcade
sequences. It might have been better if the age range of the game had been
narrowed because kids change a lot between five and twelve. This one is fun but
the note from the King's mistress rather surprised me in the 'search for the
ransom note' game. Inappropriate for 5 year olds, I thought. But the characters
are great and I thoroughly approved of the plucky Queen who showed the men a
thing or two."
