Putt-Putt Travels Through Time is a fantastic game for younger scientists, Dr.Firebird will teach children the concepts of space and time itself, and even explain how to make your own Time Machine! This game is not only for scientists,but it's for lil' racers too! I learned how too drive from this game, among other things. Pick up this game for a low price and solve the mysteries of the universe today!

I remember playing this game as a kid, and being super sad that as technology progressed, I was unable to play the disc version of it on any of my computers. I was, probably more excited than a 21 year old should be about kid's games, to see it for sale on Steam. $2.47 was worth the nostalgic feel and 48 minutes of gameplay lol

Great for children and 20 year olds such as I :D
One of the best Putt-Putt and Humongous Entertainment games out there

Cons (if you can call it that):
A bit short if you're over the age of... 10 i guess XD

Pros:
Clicking evereything is freakin' sweet :P (This game has some passion and effort put into it)

(I also recomend the freddi the fish and pajama sam games, not soo much Spy Fox and the other Putt-Putt games)

Putt-Putt Travels Through Time is a very enjoyable children's game that I played when I was young. Yes it's silly, but I found amusement in it even as an adult. Perhaps it's my past affiliation with it, or perhaps it is actually fun, this Putt-Putt game is clearly my favorite.

Super Hq graphics put modern fps titles to shame. Runs on a potato powered cpu. Ride a talking car around and talk to dinosaurs. Smooth fps and flawless controlls.
Call of Duty and Fallout 4 fanboys, look out, this is going to wreck you.

Its got cars, dinosaurs, cowboys and time travel. Possibly one of the greatest pieces of media I have ever encountered.

Buy this game, force your children to play it. Force your childrens children to play it.
