PAJAMA SAM 2: Thunder And Lightning Aren't So Frightening
Ages 3 to 8

Reviewed by  Mr. Bill & Lela

Lightning, Pajama Sam and Thunder This is the second wonderful 'Pajama Sam' game for kids (but we adults loved it also), and it's just as good as the first one was!

In this one, our adorable 6 year old hero Sam is terrified by the thunder and lightning of a summer storm. Tired of cowering under the couch, he decides to once again conquer his fears by confronting them at their source as Pajama Sam (with the courage, of course, of his comic book superhero 'Pajama Man').

So, in his footed pajamas and with his little red cape on (blankie?), he climbs into the attic, through the roof, and onto the clouds to discover a giant weather factory in the sky: 'World Wide Weather'. There he meets 'Thunder' and 'Lightning', who are not nearly as scary in person. But in the process he accidentally messes up the weather all over the world. He must find the missing parts for 4 of the weather machines and fix them before Mother Nature finds out.

To do so, Sam must interact with wonderful characters and use logic and memory to solve excellent puzzles. Along the way he learns a lot about weather. And your child or grandchild learns many admirable moral and social skills just by watching this little role model, as well as developing an early love for adventure games.

Like 'Pajama Sam 1', this game is truly replayable and can be replayed 3 times with several different puzzles to solve each time. It's a PC/Mac hybrid CD with a very simple, easy to use interface and basically plays from the CD without taking up hard drive space except for saved games. Play it with your kids. You'll love it!

Developed (1998) and published by Humongous Entertainment.  Now published by Infogrames.
