Review by Rosemary Young
" I havent looked at a Putt-Putt game for a while, not since Putt-Putt
Travels in Time, so I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Its a simpler
adventure aimed at a narrower age group, children 3 to 6. The advantages are
two fold. Aiming specifically at this pre school group allows for the game to
be more manageable by younger players with perhaps less need for parental help.
It also means that there is now a more targeted range of Humongous Interactive
Learning Adventures to train up future adventure game players :-) Putt-Putt for
the youngest, Freddi Fish and Pajama Sam for the next step up and, of course,
Spy Fox for big kids. Something for everyone!"
"The story opens with Putt-Putt and Pep
returning home from a birthday party. Putt-Putt is happy, Pep is sad. Of course
Putt-Putt wants to know why Pep doesnt share her joy. It transpires that
the reason for Peps sadness is because hes never had a Birthday
Party of his own. We dont even know the date of Peps birthday
because he was lost when he was found."
"But all is not lost, however, Putt-Putt soon meets up with Mr Kibble and
together they plan a birthday surprise. It just happens that tomorrow is the
anniversary of the day Pep was found, a good excuse for a celebration. Of
course theres now work to be done to organise a fabulous party."
"Putt-Putt: Peps Birthday Surprise is vibrant and colourful with a
collection of equally colourful characters to meet on the journey. Its a
worthy challenge for pre-schoolers and a particularly good game choice for a
young first time adventure game player."
