I played this game through all the way when I was about 6, and it legit scared me.

The game overall is very cartoonish and silly, with a chocolate loving pirate, a golden skeleton pirate, and a monkey that turns into a working bell to solve clever puzzles. However, this game shocked the heebie-jeebies out of me when I played it years ago. There's one puzzle that starts off in a dark room, with what appears to be an angelic statue in the room. When you solve the puzzle, it opens its eyes and starts crying pure poison while screaming. It's the only really scary part, however. For any child looking for a good puzzler (or some good spooks) I give this game a recommendation.
