This is a great game for kids, and it's not too bad for adults either. The scenes are very colorful, and for the most part I enjoyed the dialogue. Some of the hidden object scenes are less than clear, but there is always a hint button. I didn't mind the back-and-forth because you were never far from the hallway leading to all five doors. Heavens knows there are other games with a good deal more back tracking than this one. I thought sure I had collected all the cards only to find I had missed a couple. The mini games range from easy to fairly difficult. All in all, this is a terrific game for kids and enjoyable for adults too.
