This is billed as an adventure game for children 8+ but what it really consists of is a series of puzzles linked by the E>T> storyline. Yes it does follow the story and the graphics and characterisations are good but it is rather a letdown. There are supposed to be 20 pyzzles but this number is only schieved as several puzzles have three levels of difficulty. They consist of mazes, block moving and code breaking. None are too difficult for the age range suggested but they are rather repetitive. Also the game is so linear that you must do them in order and there is no scope for repeating a favourite task. Once done that is it - unless you start the game again. It is not so much that this is a bad game but it could have been a lot better..
