Final Breakdown


Being a game targeted at youngsters, it's a bit difficult to grade this game, but it should maintain very strong interest in children, while it won't spark much interest in adults. The idea is great with a non-violent theme, but the repetitive nature of the game isn't as nice.


Graphically, the game maintains the same exact feel and style of taste that the television series has. The bright colors, well-animated sprites for the characters work well.

Sound and Music:

A nice and hippy track for all youngsters to listen to should perk some interest. The authentic voices also found in the television series should keep the youngsters happy and interested in the game.


Just the same as the single player game, it might be a bit difficult to find any games going on though, as not too many kids will know enough about computer connections to get online.

AI and Difficulty:

Some repetition in the AI, but the difficulty of the game is right on par for kids. The game might be easy for adults, but hey, it wasn't designed for them.

Controls and Interface:

The simplistic design was built for and around kid pleasures. The easy to use interface and controls should allow any kid to easily jump right into the game and enjoy it.


This game is excellent fun for little children to have, but it will not appeal to adults. So if you have a child that likes cartoons and videogames, this game is probably a high choice.
