Product Description

Product Description

Grab your compass! Putt-Putt needs your child's help to find him. Together, they'll leap through time - exploring new dimensions and discovering surprising new friends.

Amazon.com

Travel through time with Putt-Putt and use your quick wits to help him find his buddy Pep in Putt-Putt Travels Through Time. Mr. Firebird's techno time machine has malfunctioned and sucked in Pep the dog, Putt-Putt's history paper, lunchbox, and calculator, and flung them through time. Players join Putt-Putt on an adventure-of-the-centuries that visits four different time periods.

Along the way, meet Ms. Brachiosaurus--she holds the key to unlocking the secrets of the dinosaurs--and see what pans out when you visit Silverado Sam, the prospector from the Old West. Don't forget to feed the dragon in King Chariot's medieval castle, and be sure to check out Darien the librarian from the future--he just may have the book you need. These are a few of the delightful friends who help players reunite Putt-Putt with his pal while encouraging critical thinking, listening, and memory skills, and reinforcing good social skills.

My 2 1/2 year old son immediately became enthralled with Putt-Putt Saves and Zoo and Putt-Putt Enters the Race. They are attractive, have lively music, voice, and characters, teach valuable problem solving skills, and best of all...keep the attention of a toddler! He is pretty active, but will sit for up to 20 minutes at a time working Putt-Putt through his various activities and tasks. Putt-Putt Travels Through Time has the same high-quality graphics, but is a little tougher. Even I can't figure out all the processes you have to go through sometimes, as the scenarios change from play to play. More appropriate for the 5-8 year old, I believe. At 3, he usually gets frustrated with this one before he finishes the game.

Of course, I am the odd one out here, but I was very disappointed in this game. After reading the reviews here and at Children's Software Review, we bought this game for our 3 yr. old (now almost 4). Although he finds parts of this game enjoyable, it has a very complex storyline and subject matter for young children. The activities are interesting, some more challenging than others, which is probably what keeps the children so interested.
Children are expected to help Putt Putt the car travel throughout different time periods (Medieval, Old West, Futuristic City). Along the way, they will encounter different "puzzles." Children must explore the game and find different hidden items in order to solve the puzzles and advance in the game. Some of the puzzles are wonderful thinking activities, while others are simply puzzling, even to grownups.
Because of the advanced storyline (dealing with time travel through past, present, and future), I would not give this game my highest recommendations. There are too many references to particular years and ages that just won't compute with the little guys. Also, this is not an easy game for the youngest preschoolers to use without a lot of guidance and suggestions from a gownup, so be prepared to sit alongside your child while s/he plays (which is what we should be doing anyway, right?). If you are looking for a similar game that is more developmentally appropriate, I highly recommend Ollo and the Sunny Valley Fair, a very well put-together game.

Verified Purchase
If your child has played beginning software like JumpStart and is ready to move on to more advanced gameplay, Humongous Entertainment's Putt-Putt series (and Freddi Fish and Pajama Sam, as well) are an excellent choice. These titles take the cognitive tasks up a notch as children must accumulate specific items, navigate a number of locations, and use their problem-solving skills to help their friends and achieve larger goals. Along the way, kind and gentle Putt-Putt and his dog Pep will meet a number of nice characters, visit a variety of interesting locations and play games as they complete the larger tasks.
In Putt-Putt Travels in Time, the overarching goal is to collect the items that have been sucked into a malfunctioning time machine, but along the way he will perform a variety of smaller tasks. I would rate this specific game a little lower than the other Putt-Putt titles because it is more complex and harder to follow, as the events take place in different tunnels -- prehistory, the Old West, a medieval castle and the future. This title may be more appropriate for the older kids in the suggested age range of 3-8 years old.
This is a still a fun game in a great series. We have 5 Putt-Putt titles and enjoy them all.

I was looking for games to help my daughter learn to use the computer, and that was fun. Of course my daughter is 8 years old now, but at the time she was around 5. The graphics are cartoonist and it really appealed to my daughter. It was challenging but not too hard for her to understand. The interface was very easy since all she had to do is click items and move them to these little bubbles at the bottom of the screen. This was not her first Putt Putt game, but because she enjoyed her first one I had to get more. I even enjoyed playing it the first time. I highly recommend it along with other humongous games.

My kids adored putt putt, the car always ends up there favorite colour, with my youngest its green, my girl turns it blue and my eldest ends up with a red car.
This one is the most randomised of the lot, four things to find in four time zones. Each of the things has a place to hide in each time zone. In any given game each time zone can only hide one item. So there are sixteen hiding places and sixteen different puzzles/sequences to follow to find each item and you only get four of those sixteen in any game. So you can see that this game has great replayability. You seldom get exactly the same game.
On top of this you have to help out Toby the train and there are two things that it could be either fill him with water or feed his fire, another random puzzle.
This is a fun game and a must have for kids who adore putt putt, a real favorite with younger kids and one they will come back to again and again.

This is another winning game from Humongous Entertainment! My girls are 4 & 3 and will sit for hours to play these games. This one takes a little more thought as you go from one era in time to another - but teaches so much! Don't tell your kids that they are learning something tho, cuz they'll never know with all the fun they are having! I highly recommend this game & all of the Humongous games! Freddi Fish, Pajama Sam, Spy fox - all worth the money!! press F1 key to get hints on the game play!
