Editors' reviewIn this quest game, you play a doctor in training, helping patients from fairy tales with the guidance of a doctor. If Jr. Doctor doesn't start right away, launch it with the Safe Mode button. The training option introduces you to the doctor and your obligations at the hospital. The trial version includes only the first floor, but that's more than enough to figure out whether you'll like it. You search the hospital for patients, such as the Gingerbread Man, and items to cure them, such as bandages and calamine lotion. The doctor tells you what's wrong with the patients and what you need to cure them. There's a brief Space Invaders interlude that hints at arcade-style minigames that the full version may hold. The endless music and long, spoken passages are genuinely pleasant. The game, aimed at very young children, plays like a cross between a puzzle game and an interactive storybook.
This game gives kids a fun way to experience being a doctor. Kids go through a hospital and help cure famous fairy-tale characters such as Humpty Dumpty, Frosty the Snowman, and others. Kids also learn about taking care of their bodies. The game introduces children to the fun and esteemed profession of doctoring. For ages 3-8.
