Mr. Bill's Adventureland Review
Reviewed by Mr. Bill & Lela
For the slightly older kid who is way too cool by now to identify with 'Pajama Sam', Humongous has created the wonderful 'Spy Fox' Secret Agent Series of adventure games.
Spy Fox is a fox in a white dinner jacket with a supercilious sideways look and a super smooth attitude that is sort of a parody on James Bond, complete with a female 'Monkey Penny' in the office and 'Quack' who supplies all the cutting edge technology spy gear. Full of atrocious puns and lots of jokes but no violence, it is reminiscent of (for those of you old enough to remember) the old Don Adams 'Get Smart' TV spy series.
In this adventure, Spy Fox must save the world from (horrors!) having to eat dry cereal. It seems that the arch villain, a goat named William the Kid, has dried up the world's milk supply by stealing all of the milk cows, and now has horrendous plans afoot to make everyone drink goat's milk: an "udderly" nefarious scheme that can only be foiled by our hero.
The junior adventurer must solve the case using his/her logic, memory and coordination skills (for a car chase), and you can even play games within the game (a 'Go Fish' card game with a pig!). Easy point and click interface and replayable with different clues and solutions.
Developed (1997) and published by Humongous Entertainment. Now published by Infogrames.
