Freddi and her pal, Luther return to an underwater world teeming with an assortment of characters, puzzles, music, mystery and of course, loads of fun! And so the story begins It's just your average "rock-hoppin" day under the sea, or so it may seem, as Freddi and her best friend Luther prepare for another day of school. It's Luther's turn to bring something for show-and-tell, and what better to bring than his favorite toy - a Codfish Commando action figure. However, when Freddi and Luther arrive, they find that a ghost has invaded the schoolhouse and is stealing all of the guppies' toys. Your average fish might cower in fear at this news, but not Freddi! With your child's help, Freddi and Luther soon discover the truth behind the ghost and devise a plan to trap it! Heart-warming characters and engaging adventures come to life through animation.

Reviews:

Mr. Bill's Adventureland

"These prize winning games help children develop logic, memory, coordination and computer skills, as well as teaching the importance of helping and respecting others. Practically everything the child clicks on reacts in some way, and several mini games are included within the main game (arcade, puzzle, drawing, and sing-along). The have an easy point and click interface and are replayable with different clues and solutions. Unfinished games can be easily saved.

"We are just big kids at heart, so we love these wonderful games. But so do all of the little kids ..... this series is a well-deserved best seller. And if you play games with the kids, these are ones that you can enjoy too!"

Quandary Review by Rosemary Young

"The Case of the Haunted Schoolhouse is an adventure game where the young player is invited to aid Freddi and Luther in their quest for the ghost, and to do this the player must gather the necessary items to construct a trap. Delightfully these items are not just there for the taking as, in the true spirit of adventure game playing, each one presents a problem to be overcome whether it must be extricated from its owner or from its hiding place in the game world. This means that yet more items must be collected and used to solve the problem. For instance, various game characters will ask for 'payment' in exchange for a much a needed item, or it may be out of reach, or simply stuck fast in its position requiring some implement to get hold of it. None of the problems are too difficult, although parents might have to offer a word or two of advice to players at the lower end of the recommended age group."

"Not only is this one an entertaining game, but also it demands to be replayed over and over as some of the quest items are randomly placed and some of the essential pieces of the trap device will change from game to game thus presenting different problems to solve. But I imagine that young players would delight in returning to it even without this built-in replayability."
