2.25 / 7.0

The overall message here is a good one–there’s adventure waiting outside, and it’s a good idea to put down electronic entertainment and get out there and experience it. The delivery is pretty heavy-handed though, which makes it less fun. In addition, there’s a repetitive pattern, which would be fun and clever a few times, but I feel like I just got beaten over the head with it. It’s a pass for me.

4.0 / 7.0

It’s fun to see Mr. Monkey go outside instead of just sitting in and playing his video game, but a little sad that all he thinks about when he is out is the video game.
