Owen, Joni, Leslie, and Santiago return to action in ClueFinders: The Incredible Toy Store Adventure!, as they try to prevent a mysterious shrinking ray from reducing San Francisco to miniature status. Utilizing skills that involve problem solving, spelling, geography, math, language, pattern recognition, and sequencing, the ClueFinders search a toy store filled with six activities and five ClueSpots.
Four levels of difficulty provide a suitable challenge for children ages seven to ten. Animated events provide clues for solving the mystery and offer guidance on the next step of the investigation as each activity is completed. Help is available on how to solve some of the tougher problems and a progress report featuring motivational assistance keeps track of the completed activities.
A twice-released ClueFinders title, ClueFinders: Mystery of the Missing Amulet (a.k.a. ClueFinders Reading Adventures), is included as a bonus CD. This educational space adventure features ten activities covering areas such as reading comprehension, grammar and critical thinking, but doesn't include the Personalized Learning Center CD originally shipped with the game. As with other ClueFinders titles, the game offers progress reports, multiple difficulty levels, and help files containing tips and clues. ~ Matthew House, All Game Guide
