All reviews at Edutaining Kids are independent and impartial. Our children's software reviews are designed to help parents and caregivers find the right computer games for their kids. Evaluations and ratings are based on educational and entertainment value, age appropriate content, and innovativeness.

Who better than the mischievous Curious George to star in a video game adventure? Based on the animated film, Curious George is a video game that features rich colors, a fun story line, and kid appeal. It's very challenging for little ones, however, and it should be kept in mind that adults (or older siblings) will need to intervene in order to minimize frustration.

The PC version of the game involves using the keyboard and mouse (unless you have a gamepad, which is supported). Kids are treated to clips from the animated film in between gameplay. They lead Curious George through levels, having him swing from vine to vine, run, jump, ride a lily pad on a river, and so forth. They collect bananas to unlock bonus features, and they interact with "curious objects", such as machines, drawers, and even bee hives, in order to collect points to go shopping at the Museum Gift Shop. 

Our Rating:
