This game seems to have slipped under the radar, yet it is one of the best games of its type that I’ve seen. Bear with me while I list just a few of the reasons I am so impressed. 1. Clearly designed to appeal to young players, it is bright and colourful, has wonderfully imaginative graphics, and straightforward gameplay. I’m a grownup, but I really enjoyed the visuals. And I loved the bear. 2. It offers lots of variety. In one scene, you are required to find a number of listed objects, followed by a number of pictured objects, followed by 15 of one item, and probably a simple puzzle or two, all in scenes within the scene. 3. Each of these objectives is clearly stated, active areas within the scene are highlighted, and all hold together with the simple but interesting story. 4. The simple and somewhat ‘childish’ dialogue nevertheless keeps everything clear and can be skipped if you want. 5. The story took a while to get me in, but when you find yourself feeling the need to hurry because the bear’s in trouble, you know you’re hooked. This is a refreshingly different HO game, suitable for 8-80 yr olds. Give it a trial.
