Reviews by Rosemary Young (November, 1998)
"Its Blues birthday, of course, and Steve from
the TV Series is co-hosting the party. In the opening screen of this package,
for three to six year olds, he invites the player into the house where the
games begin. What does Blue want to do for her birthday? Well, she loves to
play games so, instead of indicating outright what she wants, she leaves clues
under her paw prints for you to gather up and guess."
"The clues themselves
big blue paw prints are hidden somewhere. Sometimes they are easy to
spot, but at other times another character might have a little errand for the
player to run before they are revealed. For instance, fetch the correct
coloured balloon for a paw print reward or, maybe, a coat hanger or a watering
can will do the trick. The problems are simple and easy to follow and there are
many items to click on for a bit of extra laughter."
"This ones an engaging adventure for younger children
and the idea of chasing after paw prints is novel and captivating. It has a
very simple point and click interface with excellent graphics and in-game hints
and advice for parents. Undoubtedly, it will thrill young Blues Clues
fans who are already familiar with the TV Series. For new friends of Blue,
however, Mum and Dad might need to lend a helping hand to get the ball rolling,
but Blue won't take long to win young hearts."
