"When players first arrive at Planet Cafeterium, which
consists of rings of different food groups, they can't land their spaceship
without first collecting something to clean up all the ketchup and mustard!
Once they've successfully collected the item and used it to clean up the
planet's surface, they work their way through the different planetary rings by
playing a series of arcade activities. At Planet Pipeworks, children need to
rescue Commander Ann Chovy (one of the missing space Ambassadors), who is at
the bottom of a drain. They need to connect the pipes, one level at a time, so
that she can work her way back up. These levels become increasingly more
challenging, with higher levels requiring the need to "flip" the pipes for
"One of the game's most
appealing qualities is its hefty dose of humor. Since the story is essentially
a child's flight of fancy, ridiculous moments abound. At one point, the
StarFlyers face a cave filled with animated hairballs, and they need to call on
A. J.'s "Bubble Gum Blast" in order to get past these funny creatures. The
game's characters are well-developed; and the graphics give a Saturday morning
cartoon feel to the game."
"Although children can choose to play the game at any of 3
difficulty levels, the program also monitors players' performance,
automatically adjusting difficulty levels up or down, as needed. Help is always
