Pajama Sam, a name that I have known for my entire life. I have played the series since the beginning purchasing all of them at my local Costco ever since I first opened this on christmas of 1997. I would leave our 90's computer on all day and constantly go back and play Pajama Sam. I continually go back and replay this amazing game through all the years. I lost the disks of my Pajama Sam games so when I saw this on steam I had to buy it. Yes it is a children's game but it will always be one of my favorite games of all time. If you haven't played it I highly recommend it, whether it is for you or for a child. Every child should play this game.

Explore the Land of Darkness to find your stuff! Every character in the game has such a great personality and memorability that keeps you coming back to see them again! Every time you play the game is a different adventure!

10 / 10 Makes me a kid again.

Last year I got "Pajama Sam 3: You Are What You Eat From Your Head To Your Feet" and told everyone in a review that if I could choose between that game and my girlfriend, I'd choose that game. I was single in a few months...Long story short she and I got back together a few weeks ago.

I just found this game, and I think it's safe to assume that if I could pick between THIS game and my girlfend, I'd pick this game. Will I ever learn?
