Quandary Reviews by Rosemary Young (November, 1998)

"It’s Blue’s 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 one’s 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 Blue’s 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."
