Same charm as the film, but play is hit and miss.

The multitude of challenges you confront are hit and miss. The initial point-and-click activities found in the first chapter are simple to the point of tedium; one can only feed hens and collect their eggs so many times before growing bored. However, things get downright tricky (and fun) in the Battle of The Wits chapter, which features plenty of quick little mindbenders in the form of logic, anagram, and rhyming puzzles. The engaging gameplay continues in the Fire Swamp chapter, which involves some entertaining running, jumping, and sword fighting. Sadly, the final two chapters -- potion mixing with Miracle Max and ammunition collecting in Storm the Castle -- are neither deep nor interesting enough to warrant the time players are expected to spend with them.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
