Great variety of Muppet characters (Ages 5-12?)
In Spy Muppets, Kermit is the James Bond of the Muppet world. He is assigned to catch three evil villians who are creating havic and choas.
At the beginning of each assignment, you will help Kermit repair the required vehicle in the lab by matching silhouettes of the missing parts with items on a shelf. Depending on the skill level you choose (easy, medium, hard), you have a limited amount of time to match five missing pieces correctly. The first challenge when capturing the assigned villian is to catch the villian's henchmen. Once you have beat the henchmen, you continue to another task of catching the villian. Most of these pursuits require you to help Kermit avoid pitfalls in the chase sequence, but not to worry you can also pick up a few 'repair/life booster' on the way if needed. After catching the villian, Kermit always brings back a souvenir for the lab. With a pat on the back, headquarters sends Kermit out on his next assignment.
Spy Muppets would be entertaining for younger children. The story and directions must be read, so if the child is able to read or could have someone read it to them, they should have no problem playing the game. The game mostly requires directional manuvering (up, down, right, left)and A or B button actions (jumping, selecting, etc). While on assignment, Kermit will entertain you with his dry sense of humor. The game format and images are classic Nitendo/ Game Boy.
I purchased Spy Muppets as an entertaining way to see the Muppets characters I loved as a child. I think I completed all levels in a couple hours. The game itself is not that challenging for an adult, but more of a throw back to childhood. Have fun!Read full review
