As with his previous titles, Pajama Sam’s escapades take place in his imagination where he transforms his childhood world into a fantasy world. This time, Pajama Sam ventures into a junk pile in his room to hunt for his cherished first edition Pajama Man comic book.
In this junk-strewn world, Pajama Sam discovers that inanimate objects talk. He befriends a dirty sock who wants to be reunited with his matching partner, meets a wrench who operates a crane, helps a sponge who has a craving for mold, and talks with a badge who is the Mall Security Guard.
To find his comic book, Pajama Sam interacts with about a dozen characters as he travels through nearly 30 scenes. What makes this software a great learning adventure is that children have to figure out how to navigate their way throughout this wacky world, and then remember the locations of specific characters and places. They must collect items in one part of the adventure to use in other parts.
This is a delightful adventure that will keep children engaged and thinking for hours. If your children are new to the Pajama Sam series, they will be enthralled.
If your children have played the earlier Pajama Sam titles, they may notice that this title isn’t quite as polished as its predecessors. Some scene changes have long lag times and the lip-syncing is off a little. This adventure is shorter than the previous three, and its replayability isn’t as good because not as many things change when you play it again. Nevertheless, it is still an adventure worth undertaking.
