Couldn't beat the price of this game as an Amazon download. I took the risk after 2 poor reviews and glad I did. Spent an afternoon playing with my 7 year old daughter while we were stuck inside during a snowstorm. I had no problem with the download. I have a Windows 7 64-bit system. The graphics are a bit old fashion. The dialogue between characters can be a bit lengthy, but we had a good time. When we exited the game the first time (after beating the first two missions), it automatically saved. I thought it was good value for the price I paid. My daughter needed some help, but was independent at times.

I was trying to find the full-on game that we used to play way back in the 90s. This is just one "episode," and once you've solved it once, it's just the same thing every time you play. I was looking for the one that has a different case every time. Oh well, I'll keep looking! :)

Will not save game data~ I am dissapointed in this purchase, was told to uninstall and reinstall three times to no avail and am stuck with a game that you must start over every time that you play :(

My fourth grade class loves playing this game during free time. It teaches them random tidbits of world geography, but also promotes good listening/focusing skills. They have to pay close attention to understand the hints and find clues!

It's not possible to end the game. We travel to three places and can't get any farther. It's okay that this wasn't the game I was looking for, but it's not okay that I wasted $10 on a game that simply doesn't work.

I got this for my 10 year old son - we had a great time until about halfway through when the game shut down (as my PC is pretty new, I'm assuming it was the game software). We had to restart at the beginning because our progress wasn't saved. About 4 minutes into the game, it shut off again and again, progress not saved. My own fault for ignoring the majority poor reviews and opting to listen to the positive ones. A $10 lesson I won't soon forget.

My son was very excited to play this as he played it often when we had it on cd rom many years ago. We were very disapointed to discover that it is quite different that the original version. Not the same characters and the quality in animation is not the same.
