Putt-Putt come back!
My daughter (and I) have loved Putt-Putt. Particularly "goes to the zoo" and "racetrack" games. This game just does not run as well. It is slow and the speech is choppy. The voice of Putt-Putt has changed and not really for the better. I wish I would have read the reviews here before purchasing it. Everything the previous reviewers have said is true.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buy Putt-Putt Enters the Race Instead!
Pep's Birthday Surprise is a definite let-down from Putt-Putt Enters the Race! The major flaw in the software is that the game is less open-ended and too full of animated scenes ... the charm of the Putt-Putt games is that kids are encouraged to use critical thinking skills and to figure out (sometimes obscure) problems. These features are curtailed in this particular game, as if the designers have lost faith in their audience's ability to problem solve and to do multi-step reasoning ... A minor but disconcerting feature is that Putt-Putt's voice has dropped in pitch, which will prove very distracting to Putt-Putt parent veterans!

1-0 out of 5 stars Stepford Putt
We had to install this on an XP account with privileges, and we still have no confidence it will not bomb. We gave up trying to install on Windows 2000 and 98 systems.

It takes forever to get through the scene chat. Our children are really patient; this is the first time we've felt compelled to use the Enter key to end the character chats.

The bonhomie is missing. Even down to the choice of Putt's voice. Putt used to seem about 7 years old, and now he sounds like his voice is about to change.

Putt used to be an innocent little guy, helpful and kind, but in this game, he must constantly get rid of Pep in order to discuss the party with co-conspirators. In most scenes, you must first click on Pep so that Putt-Putt can tell him to "go play with your friend", out the door, unsupervised...

Better to buy "Enters the Race" first, then try "Zoo", "Circus", "Moon", and "Parade".

1-0 out of 5 stars Not designed properly for XP
My 3 year old son loved Putt-Putt enters the race, but I'm disappointed with this game and Window's XP. I had to install the game as Administrator, but my son's account is set up as a limited user to keep him from deleting important data from the computer. The game does NOT work properly from limited accounts and I can't find a patch to fix it. So far it runs, but you can't save/load any games. A simple bug that should have been fixed in normal beta testing. Good ideas, neat pictures - bad programming.

Update: I contacted their technical support. They gave me a useless response and didn't offer to help me solve it. Fortunately some web searches helped me figure out how to fix this.

BAD Technical support for this software.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waaay too slow
This game was unplayably slow on a computer that was adequate
for previous Humongous Software games.

Humongous is clearly capable of making playable games, so there
must have been something different about his one.
The alliance with Atari is new to me, as is their use of
Bink Video and Miles Sound System from RAD Game Tools.
Note that "Pajama Sam: Life is Tough When You Lose Your Stuff"
also has complaints about slowness on Amazon. ... Read more

The Greatest Hits CD-ROM collection gives children ages 3 to 8 an opportunity to explore and learn with their favorite Humongous Entertainment characters, including the peppy purple convertible Putt-Putt, underwater supersleuth Freddi Fish, and the world's youngest superhero, Pajama Sam. The Greatest Hits series features three software adventures: Putt-Putt Saves the Zoo, Freddi Fish and the Case of the Missing Kelp Seeds, and Pajama Sam in "No Need to Hide When It's Dark Outside".

Putt-Putt and Pep help get the Cartown Zoo ready for the grand opening inPutt-Putt Saves the Zoo. Kids explore the zoo and rescue baby animals with Putt-Putt while practicing critical-thinking, memory, and sequencing skills. In Freddi Fish and the Case of the Missing Kelp Seeds, Grandma Grouper's kelp seeds have disappeared, and without them all of the sea creatures will go hungry. With the help of Freddi and Luther, kids explore underwater caves, deep canyons, colorful reefs, and more to solve this deep-sea mystery using critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. In Pajama Sam in "No Need to Hide When It's Dark Outside", kids help Pajama Sam find his way through a world of talking trees, dancing furniture, a giant tree house, and a sunken mine on his way to face his fear of the dark. Players discover that clever thinking, teamwork, and problem solving are keys to success and that Darkness isn't so bad after all. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A fantastic bargain for three wonderful kids titles!
My three year old daughter started out with Freddi Fish number 2. We now own all five Freddi Fish titles. This great pack comes with three cd's. Each cd is number one in the series for each character. All three main characters are really cute and easy to follow. The graphics are great on all the cd's, and each adventure has some great fun songs in them. In each scene, there are a lot of things to click on so that the kids really get good mouse practice. This is a great set to get for a child who is just starting out on the computer. An experienced user will love it too. Each title is good for a boy or a girl.
We have over 20 kids games, and this set is by far the very best.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great games, great buy
My 5 year old son loves all of these games. We had a different Pajama Sam game which he loved and I couldn't pass up the deal offered here. I'm sure glad I got it. Humongous does a great job creating fun games with staying power. They are just hard enough to keep your attention, but easy enough not to be frustrating for a 5 year old. At this age, its unnecessary to get the newest games, as long as the games are new to the kids, that's all you need. These 3 games will provide months of entertainment at a great price.

5-0 out of 5 stars Humongous Fun
We bought this set for my son before he was 2 and he learned all the tricks in the Putt Putt game right away with me moving the mouse for him. Now he's a bit over 2 and he's learned how to use the mouse so he can do Putt Putt and Fredi Fish by himself. He doesn't always get everything right but he loves to play. The games are very creative and if the child doesn't click on the right thing, lots of funny things happen to whatever they click. He's still too young for Pajama Sam but some older friends of his love it. This is a terrific set at a great price. One tip: make sure you click on the topiary creatures before you go in the zoo in the Putt Putt game - there's a very cute song and dance they do.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just as much of a success as the Junior Arcade series!
My 5-year old and his 3-year old sister have thoroughly enjoyed the Junior Arcade series which in many ways are HE's homage to classic arcade games (Defender, Breakout, Q*Bert, etc.)

But after reading numerous reviews especially here on Amazon I realized that I had to pick up one of the Adventure series as my kids love the characters, and would be working on some problem-solving and observational skills, among other things. Plus I knew the humour would make the grown-ups laugh along with the little ones.

Boy was I right! Just picked up this little value pack today, and they wouldn't go to bed until we finished the Pajama Sam title! It's true that the puzzles are hard enough to be challenging, but not frustratingly impossible to figure out (the carrot-fridge connection was so obvious that it never occurred to me for the longest time!)

I love knowing my son can play it again a second time with some of the puzzles changed, and a few "hidden" sections awaiting as well! It has better replay value than many games out there for the grown-ups!

I highly recommend this collection, as well as any of the other Pajama Sam/Spy Fox/Freddi Fish/Putt-Putt titles for parents looking for wholesome, challenging, and occasionaly laugh-out-loud enjoyable kids games! I get a chance to relive my own youth (this title reminded me of playing King's Quest 1 and 2 back in my teens) while encouraging my kids to think creatively rather than just go through the same repetitious routine again and again like most games out there... What more could you ask for in a kid's game?

5-0 out of 5 stars Great entertainment, and good learning too.
This is a great set of games. They're hard enough that solutions aren't always obvious (even to the adult), but easy enough that with time and effort even a 3 year old can master them eventually. They're also fun enough that the 3 year old in question was more than willing to put in the time. In fact it was hard to pry him away from them. The characters are engaging, and there are a lot of small games internally that can be played regardless of what's going on in the larger game. All three are very good, and our son plays them all pretty equally, switching back and forth between them. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great fun at an incredible value!
Our family owns 5 Putt Putt games and, out of the 5, Putt Putt Saves the Zoo is the favorite of all 3 of our children. It also is the one most played when young friends come over. I would recommend it for ages as low as 2(with help) to 10. The Putt Putt series is very creative in that with every click of the mouse, something happens. Then on top of that, there is a mystery or problem to be solved. Combined, these effects can keep the interest of the 10 year old and the 2 year old. One thing to keep in mind, though, the younger they are, the more it is played. From age 8 on, once the mystery is solved, it is not as appealing to play repitiously, whereas the younger ones just keep on playing. I would highly recommend any of the Putt Putts, but especially Putt Putt Saves the Zoo.

5-0 out of 5 stars Putt-Putt Experience
This three pack of excellent games is a super value. In "Putt-Putt Saves the Zoo", Putt-Putt must find missing animals for the grand opening of the Cartown Zoo while solving problems. In "Balloon-a-Rama", Putt-Putt bounces his dog, Pep into the air to pop balloons. There are 120 levels and bonuses, plus a built in easy to use level builder. In Putt-Putt's One Stop Fun Shop, Putt-Putt creates all kinds of great projects in a Putt-Putt theme. I would get this if I didn't already have it! For more info, look up each game individually. ...
