Some of the most entertaining computer games for little kids from more than ten years ago, starring Freddi Fish, Pajama Sam, and Spy Fox, are being released by Majesco for the Nintendo Wii.
The original Freddi Fish title, Freddi Fish: Kelp Seed Mystery, released in the 1990′s for computers is now available for the Wii. Players follow a story line in which they lead Freddi (I remember being surprised that Freddi was a girl!) and her sidekick, Luther, in search of missing kelp seeds. Kids need to listen to clues, collect items along the way that they will use to solve problems later, and play mini-games.
If you’re expecting updated graphics and/or a new experience that takes advantage of the interactive features of the Nintendo Wii system, you’ll be disappointed. However, it’s a bit of a nostalgic blast from the past, and it’s good for children ages 4-7. Anyone older will “beat” the game far too quickly.
Also available at the time of this post are Pajama Sam: Don’t Fear the Dark and Spy Fox: Dry Cereal.
