Rugrats: Search for Reptar
is a challenging 3-D adventure game based on the familiar Nickelodeon cartoon series. Fans of the show will encounter the entire Rugrats
gang, including Tommy, Angelica, Phil and Lil, Chuckie, Stu, Spike and Grandpa. Your goal is to seek and find pieces of Tommy's lost Reptar puzzle, which are scattered across 10 basic and six bonus levels. As you look for the pieces, you will travel through several strange scenarios, including a trip to the grocery store with Tommy and Grandpa (where you must dodge spinning sodas and mean lobsters). You will also help Grandpa find his lost teeth while dodging evil geese in a maze of bushes. Other cool adventure areas include an egg hunt, a circus and a game of miniature golf with windmills and uneven greens.
As in the cartoon, the game's graphics are relatively simplistic. However, the camera angles do get a bit dicey at times, since the kids' big heads can often block your view of the action. In addition, the frequently shifting perspectives sometimes result in a sudden reversal of your control response, which can be frustrating during time-sensitive moments. Nonetheless, this is a great game for younger children to play with their parents. --Kasty Thomas
