The Putt-Putt trilolgy is my favorite anime. With Putt-Putt's struggle with ADHD and never stops shaking and smiling like everything is perfect. Or his drug problem that makes him see flashbacks from the holocaust. His pet doggo is the loser friend who wants to hog the spotlight like a little prick. All in all putt-putt makes you want to kill yourself, but hey everyone wants you dead anyway.

I had played some of the other Putt-Putt games as a child, such as Joins the Parade, Saves the Zoo and Travels through time. This plays the same as any other Humongous Entertainment, around an hour worth of game play depending on the randomization of the game's puzzles. Or at least thats true for Saves the Zoo and Travels through Time, where items needed or where you can find certain things is different between play throughs.

During the late 90’s/early 2000’s Humongous Entertainment released an absolutely fantastic stream of “edutainment” point and click adventures for children. These titles focus on a range of light academics including basic geography, basic to upper elementary level mathematics, logical thinking, critical thinking and puzzle solving, topped off with reinforcement of good manners and polite social etiquette. At the lower end of the age spectrum, they may require some adult supervision and supportive guidance, but there is no better series of games for a child’s first venture into PC gaming.

Putt-Putt Joins the Circus didn’t really stick in my memory like the other titles. Much like Putt-Putt Enters the Race, I was beginning to grow out of these games and I think that is mostly to blame. The Circus is certainly not the best title in the series but it’s definitely better than the Race.

This is probably the best Putt-Putt game along with Saves the Zoo. It has a bigger and more fun cast of characters than most of the Putt-Putt games and there's a bit more problem solving. It's still a very easy 45 minute game for children, but in terms of reliving your early youth, this is one of the ones to pick up.

My son really liked this game. Standard help one NPC in order to help another NPC gameplay, but it was able to hold his attention and provide just enough challenge so that he didn't lose interest.
