Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that a couple of the games aren't really about Halloween, but they are fun anyway!

Review this title!

What's it about?

Help Buster assemble an alien out of spare parts, then tag along as he visits a planet populated by -- you guessed it -- the aliens you designed! Next, send in the trolls! There's a Cyberchase beauty contest awaiting them, but first you need to line them up by height. Hmm, do antennae count? If you need some inspiration for the Halloween costume of your dreams, take a look at the \"It's My Life\" section to read what other kids will be wearing. Or it might be time to try some face painting: learn how to use face paints to look like a dog, a clown, or ... a pumpkin.

Is it any good?
