It's an cute little puzzle game, but not as interesting as the main series.

It's not a terrible game, just forgettable.

I don't even know where the ♥♥♥♥ my life is going but I found entertainment in it for a period of time.... :steamsad:
It all started back in 'Nam... when I lost my leg. since then I got back on my feet.... foot... :steamsad: When I got back to the states, I had a ton of socks for my feet. Well since I only have one foot, I decided to have them sorted left from right. Well I had my brilliant son Sam, create a machine to sort them left from right. Well I'm not the brightest cause of the mine that took my leg. So my son Sam works the machine to sort socks and he loves it!*

10/10 Would lose a leg again.

*Note: In full transparency, this is a work of fiction. Yes I have to say this as some people aren't the brightest brick in the toolshed. :steamfacepalm:

Pajama Sam: Sock Works beats the new DOOM game!

I used to have this game on a CD and as a kid, I kept playing the campaign mode and made my own levels. I would say, the level customization was the best feature the game offered.

The soundtrack is impressive and is soothing. Guess what? I owe my childhood to Jeremy Soule for making the music! If the name is not recognizable, The Elder Scrolls might ring a bell.

Of course, the game has not aged well and looking back, the gameplay is very limited. It gets very repetitive and I doubt anyone would be willing to play the campaign mode twice. The level customization does help a little but due to the small and clunky interface, it does get boring after a while because of the limitations.

Essentially, the only redeemable parts of the game was the music and the ability to make custom levels. Sock Works does not offer anything new otherwise, as it is essentially taken from "Buzzy The Knowledge Bug: Let's Explore the Airport" minigame.

So then, why do I recommend this game? It's for nostalgia and good for a one-time playthrough as now, the game is easily forgotten due to better games now. As such, get the game at a deep discount if interest still holds.

Do you procrastinate so hard you dream of doing your chores using a machine you built that actually makes it more tedious and longer to do the chore but you don't care because you're having fun?

Pajama ♥♥♥♥ing Sam does. (This kid's a ♥♥♥♥ing genius, I tell you.)

Sock Works was among the spin off games to the Pajama Sam franchise. The object of the game is to control various convoy belts and other machines to sort out the right color socks in the right color baskets. As you progress further into the game, the later levels get trickier and other times, the levels are simply easy. Keep in mind that this is not an adventure game like the main franchise with the whole exploration and point and click scenario. Which is why I refer to it as a "spin-off" features Pajama Sam in a mini game theme game. If you like the Pajama Sam adventure games, then you may like this one. It's overrall an addicting game to make the time go by.

This titan of a game isn't one to be passed up. The emotional connection the viewer feels when Sam gets told to sort his socks, as well as the impending danger imposed upon the viewer when Sam decides to "shut his eyes for just a bit" before doing so, are both so incredibly deep and resplendent that the only way to describe this is as an experience. You look at good art; you experience timeless art. Similarly, you experience Pajama Sam's Sock Works instead of merely playing it. This game is a feast - a delight to the senses - and has earned its place in the phenomenal Pajama Sam series.

I remember this game fondly and, surprisingly, it holds up pretty well. As usual for the humongous arcade games there's a degree of luck here, but it's never crippling enough to the point where you can be forced into impossible situation, and it's still mostly a reactive thinking exercise. It never gets too difficult but it's not that easy, either, and it's really quite enjoyable for what it is.
