Products & Purchases
This is a game created to be a fund-raiser for the Starlight Starbright Foundation.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that by purchasing this game, at least half of the proceeds will go to the Starlight charity. If you purchase the boxed version, fifty percent of the cost goes to the charity, while with the downloadable version (www.tuttlesfamilygame.com), the charitable amount rises to seventy-five percent. Because the game can be played on three levels of difficulty, it is a game the whole family can enjoy.
Is It Any Good?
What makes this game good is the story. This family, comprised of parents and two kids, gets into wacky situations, including bargaining with a group of nomad desert people who deliver a Monty-Python-type performance. The hilarious script is a product of Dave Thomas and his Emmy-Award-winning comedy team at Animax Entertainment, and it plays out in comic book style cutscenes that appear between levels. Combine this with bright bold graphics, a catchy sound track, and stellar voice talent, and you have a game worth playing. And through all of the Tuttles' Madcap Misadventures, the game manages to deliver a strong message about the importance of family bonding.
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.
