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!"
