That precocious little white mouse from the classic book by E.B. White can be found not only in his eponymous 1999 film debut but also on your PC in the Stuart Little: Big City Adventure CD-ROM Game. Kids -- and adults -- of all ages can guide Stuart Little through a series of five games, each with three levels of difficulty.
There are two ways to get into the action: Story Mode and Free Play. In the former, Snowbell the cat narrates Stuart's story as you make your way through the games in order; once you've completed all of them, you'll be rewarded with a final animation. In Free Play you can play them in any order you wish.
The first game is the Regatta Race. Guide Stuart on his boat The Wasp in a race on the pond; try to avoid obstacles such as buoys, rocks, soda cans and frogs as you try to get to the finish line before your time runs out.
Next up is the Park Challenge. Stuart's on the run from some street cats and needs your help to make it through Central Park. You must steer his car and avoid the acorns, snails and rocks that clutter the path while trying to grab flashlights to scare away the cats. You also have to grab batteries to replenish your power supply or the car will come to a stop and Stuart will become lunch.
In Big Mini-Golf, Stuart has stumbled across a miniature golf course. There are three holes to play: the castle, the pyramid and the windmill.
Complete them and it's off on the Electric Train Adventure. Stuart is riding an electric train and needs your help to avoid blockades and switch the tracks so that he can grab the flags. Spinning toy rockets will boost the train's speed for a few seconds and landslides, fallen trees and other vehicles will appear on the tracks every so often.
Finally, Stuart needs to make it through the pantry and escape the clutches of Monty the cat. He needs to run across the dishwasher, past the pantry drawers and through the sink and use various household items to help him do so. If he gets out the window safely he's made it through the final game.
After they're done with the activities, kids can see the Top 10 high scores for each game and print out certificates and pictures of Stuart from the Photo Album. ~ Brad Cook, All Game Guide
