Popular kids’ game publisher
(a division of Infogrames) has announced the release of Freddi Fish 5: The Case of the Creature of Coral Cove. It’s a mystery-solving adventure game aimed at kids four to seven years old starring popular Humongous character Freddi Fish and her pal Luther.
Like all of Humongous’ popular Junior Adventure games, Freddi Fish 5 sports a variety of hand-drawn, animated locations that kids get to explore and interact with as they help Freddi Fish solve her case. The game is rife with puzzles and educational games that help to build kids’ strategic thinking and decision making skills as they have fun with Freddi.
Freddi Fish 5: The Case of the Creature of Coral Cove sports new characters like Marty, the oily sardine — a money-grubbing real estate developer; Xamfear Duncan Dogberry Valentine, a mysterious sea monster; and Marge the Sarge, a paranoid military expert. Freddi gains access to various crime-solving tools like the Yackety Capacitator, a messaging device that enables players to send and receive messages to and from other characters in the game.
Humongous also notes that the game CD sports 11 audio tracks; the game’s music can be played in any regular CD player.
The new title is available on hybrid CD-ROM and is compatible with both Mac OS and Windows. The game carries a suggested retail price of US$19.99, and includes for a limited time an offer for a free copy of the hardcover storybook Freddi Fish and the Missing Letters.
