Ever since my daughter was 3 years old we came across a game series called Putt-Putt... its a point and click adventure with basic logic problems. Your child only need be familiar with the very basics of using a mouse. There is nothing in it that a parent would disapprove of. If you're looking for a game for your child that doesn't have hitting or violence of any kind...this is the game...or game series.

My daughter is 6 now and still loves it...even though she is tearing through it much faster :)

Cheers

I knew in advance that this one wasn't made by the original team and by god does it show. The voices sound AWFUL. Considering they've never been great, either...
The dialogue has also been dumbed down to the point of being insulting, the puzzles are barely puzzles, there's so much reused scenes and animations... it's just a cash grab version of the older games with no effort put into it. Really, avoid this one. Not really even part of the series as far as I'm concerned.

beautiful story of preparing a birthday party for my pep-pep, he's my special boy and my little prince.

PROS: engaging storyline, cute dogs
CONS: i got to take 2 points from the score due false facts about chickens laying eggs they can't lay that many in a row really unrealistic and took me out of the story and game completely.

8/10 NEARLY PERFECT

This is the worst Putt-Putt game (although it's not completely awful). It just lacks the imaginative environments and characters of the previous games so it's not very exciting. The animation is worse than the other games and the voice actor changed again (worst one yet!). There is less gameplay and lengthier animated scenes, which isn't helped by the sloppier animation. The key creativity left Humongous before this game was made and it definitely shows that this is just a quick cash-in.

Whether you're looking for nostalgia or a kids game, any of the other Putt-Putts are better.

update 2: this game will not run on windows 8.1 becuse it needs windows basic to work that windows 8.1 update 2 removed that incleds windows 10 even with lartest directx.
however systems running on windows 8.1 update 2 or 1; agein this game will not lench base on it needs windows basic or windows classic for it to proprely lench.
at this time there is no workawenwd for this game unlose you have windows 8 sp0 tune reed beloew.

for systems under windows 8.0 right clack personalize tune find windows 8 basic, tune this game will lench. systems runing windows 10 on any build will not run base on this game refises to lench without windows classic or basic. based on graphica dasen that broke this software even pajama sam 4 life is rough when you lose your stuff.

update 2 the ntherland dench does work you need to instell the nitherland dench language pack for all windows versions eccople windows 10- windows 8.1 update 1 and above.
becuese of no support for windows basic or windows classic.

The netherland dutch might not work or lemch from above bir it did work on my computer and others that i vilntery on computer shops. however some computer oners told mw that swashing the languaage in steam.
under view or steam tune settings look for interface tune choose your langrese to natherland dench but i naver tested it on my own thoewe.

however this feedback will or might not work depending on your computers hardware.

i'll recommand pajama sam life is rough without your stuff over this game. this game on the other hand no, becuse this game is not customizable compard to early versions of putt-putt games. that also applys to pajama sam 4.

this and pajama sam 4 is base on yago engine, tune scumm however stell passable to enable if you have basic skills. and you knoew how to enable it in the browse all files tap under sttings; on steam.

the issel with this game is that putt-putt peps birthday surprise, is surpose to be customizable and diffent every time you play the game. the thing is father and it's devemant it got disappld. It stell can be enbired with there debbing muna. however it has begs l in excemple: at the fire stition you might see a left light near the fire track called
scene_firestation.xml, the issel is that if you move putt-putt untel the fire stition it will crashes the woule game, base on the file does not exist however you remove this opsien from the debeg menia.

not just that this game was a complate rapeoff of fatty bear's barthday surpise. that i stongly advise that game before this base on the humer even more engishing. this game is engishing; the thing is it can only be run on windows. Also the aciivitys are not to good compard to other humongous games.

even pajama sam 4 is bitter tune this game, compard to customizable, even play aspacts. yes it is true that both games suck beg time compared to thew prodices however i feel that this game is not accable to my stenddens do to begs that can't be fexd even with debbger tools enabild.

ather if you want a game that has no vilance at any kind or is realestic this game will be perfent.
