NickToons: Nick Tunes lets kids turn their computer into a mini recording studio with the included microphone that records in addition to serving as the mouse. The game allows children to record their own voices in a number of games featuring the following NickToons characters: Arnold, Gerald, SpongeBob, Eliza Thornberry, Otto Rocket, Reggie Rocket, Tommy Pickles, and Angelica Pickles.
Children can sing a duet or karaoke with four of the characters, play musical challenge games, and save and replay recorded songs to compile soundtracks on their own virtual CD. The four challenge games can be played at one of three levels and feature Arnold, Eliza, Otto, and SpongeBob. Kids can help Arnold make a video to his new song "I've Been Working on My Homework" (to the tune of "I've Been Working on the Railroad") or help SpongeBob compose a song in a Mad Lib-style game where players make up some of the lyrics to the song "On My Krabby Patty" (sung to the tune of "On Top of Old Smokey").
All of the songs can be saved to CD as one of 12 soundtracks. Once all 12 slots are filled, Angelica presents the "Best New Artist Ever Award" and children can record their acceptance speech. The game also includes the Mix Master Studio, where kids can record and play their voices or talk into the Voice Synthecator, which warps their voice into one of seven sound effects (such as a mouse, ghost, or robot). ~ Jennifer Beam, All Game Guide
