Tony Robinson's Weird World of Wonders
You know how early 90s kids shows always had a group of parentless children traveling throughout time and space for adventure and education? Well, another gang of intrepid lads and lasses in Tony Robinson's Weird World of Wonders are bringing you strange tidbits of history through a quick physics adventure game. Historical highjinks ensue with Pee Wee and Nits as they search for the missing Curiosity Crew members, solve puzzles, and hear Mr. Robinson's comical commentary along the way.
Pee Wee and Nits need a helping hand through their adventure by guiding the boy with the arrow keys and his canine with mouse clicks. Aardman Digital, who has quite a presence on the virtual space now, brings a well-known British actor and his quirky book series to life in a very casual platformer. While the game is quite short at 24 levels and little challenge from the puzzles, the nonsensical and excellent voice over of Mr. Robinson brings out your smile and gives you colorful insight into some history. Using your cute little pooch and the nimble Pee Wee together to solve puzzles is the bulk of your challenge in grabbing keys and dodging historical figures. While you muck about in history, grab any treasure you can find and keep man's best friend at your side to complete little side quests. The game is suited more to a younger demographic, middle school kids perhaps, but that is no reason for anyone to miss out on admiring the sketch-style art and solving easy puzzles when you need a nice respite during the day.
