Pajama Sam 3: You Are What You Eat from Your Head to Your Feet

Pajama Sam 3: You Are What You Eat from Your Head to Your Feet is an adventure game aimed at kids ages 3 to 8. The fats and sweets have taken over MopTop Island. Our hero, in a one-piece flannel suit, tracks down vegetables, the missing delegates at an emergency peace conference. Though the game is more entertaining than it is educational, it's impressively complex. Kids maneuver Sam until he stumbles upon clues or strikes up crucial conversations. The dialogue between characters is engaging and unusually well thought-out. There is no single, correct method for finding the missing delegates or getting Sam out of sticky situations; players learn through trial and error. An appreciation of the game, however, requires patience and attention to detail; searching for clues or paths to new locations can be frustrating at times. With noteworthy animation work that varies from panoramic views to dramatic close-ups, Pajama Sam 3 creates a fun virtual reality. For kids, it should provide hours of exploration and problem-solving, and for animation-loving adults, some guilt-free pleasure.
