I originally got this one as something that my 3 yr old and 6 yr old could play together. Well, too tough for the 3 yr old, but the 6 yr old really took to it.
The gameplay takes a little getting used to - you really want to run through the tutorial. But it makes sense - you can not directly control the characters. But, instead, you have to figure out how to stop them, make them get to the top of the screen etc... only by drawing some basic shapes for them to climb on. It's sort of a puzzle.
I really enjoyed watching the kids figure out that they give themselves time by boxing in the character (drawing walls on both sides). And then they were easily able to create a series of ramps to get them up an over an obstacle.

I think this adventure game was pretty cool....but not for the age you would think. I got this game for my 6 and 7 year olds, but they both were having difficulties playing it. The game itself is not too bad, but if you are trying to get all the crayons in all the levels, it is not so easy. My kids could not do it and I was even having trouble getting some of them. It walks itself and goes pretty quick, so you are constantly drawing blocks back and forth to get up to some of those high crayons. It was too difficult for the age it should have been designed for.
