The sneaky little creatures, fun tools and strange machines you encounter from page to page may help you in your quest for the lost treasure.

A New Approach to Learning Games

With Uncle Albert's Magical Album, we have created a new type of adventure for children that combines action, reflexes and experiments inside a living, captivating world.

Whether it is to solve a riddle or explore just for the fun of experimenting, children can catch and observe these animals and move them from one page to the next.

  • There are many amazing worlds to explore and surprizes to uncover in Albert's Album. Can you solve the mysteries and discover its most secret pages.

The Kid's Domain by Carol Welch

"There are so many wonderful things to do in this album! It encourages children to take their time, explore and experiment. The charming, nostalgic feel of the game creates a sense of comfort and ease. The challenges range in difficulty from simply finding an item or creature to solving elaborate puzzles. The unique interface allows the player to go along at his/her own pace, moving back and forth between the pages and challenges as needed to find solutions. One of my favorite aspects of the game are the "living, intelligent" creatures. Insects, frogs, even a mouse move about randomly on the pages as if they were real. You can move them from page to page and they will always stay on the page where you left them, but beyond that you never know when they will appear or what they will do.

"Both my son and I have played this game a great deal. Neither of us has found the hidden treasure yet, but it's because we're really in no hurry. We're having too much fun playing! This game is an excellent example of the journey being much more important (and enjoyable) than the destination!"
