Who better than the mischievous Curious George to star in
a video game adventure? Based on the animated film, Curious George
is a video game that features rich colors, a fun story line, and kid
appeal. It's very challenging for little ones, however, and it
should be kept in mind that adults (or older siblings) will need to
intervene in order to minimize frustration.
The PC version of the game involves using the keyboard and mouse
(unless you have a gamepad, which is supported). Kids are treated to
clips from the animated film in between gameplay. They lead Curious
George through levels, having him swing from vine to vine, run,
jump, ride a lily pad on a river, and so forth. They collect bananas
to unlock bonus features, and they interact with "curious objects",
such as machines, drawers, and even bee hives, in order to collect
points to go shopping at the Museum Gift Shop.
