Rugrats Mystery Adventures turns the star of the Rugrats, Tommy Pickles, into a 1940s style detective, or, as he puts it, "Private Defective," defending the good babies from the "mustardminds" who do bad things.
In this game, he takes on ten cases ranging from The Case of Sand in the Sippy Cup to The Case of the Malties Ducky. In each case, players get clues by playing one of the six arcade-style games to get Reptar Bars with which to pay their informant. After they have paid, they decide what clues were at the scene of the crime. If they are right, another Reptar Bar will allow players to find the crook. Otherwise, they'll be told which of the clues were wrong and will need another Reptar Bar to try again. When all the clues are right, players can accuse the suspect they think committed the crime.
Six games result in Reptar Bar rewards. Three take place in the park (accessed by clicking on Didi Pickles at Tommy's house) and three are at Home Heaven, reached by clicking on Stu Pickles.
At the park, you can play Turtle Recall, Just Ducky and Worm-a-licious. In the first, you must clear a way to the stone turtle by popping the balloons with other balloons of the same color. Once a path is open to the center, you must push the baby turtle through it to win a Reptar Bar. The second game, Just Ducky, involves guiding Chuckie to round up all the baby ducks before Spike scares them away and then return them to their mother at the pond. In Worm-a-licious, you must help Phil and Lil gather up worms to eat while avoiding the bugs.
At Home Heaven, the three games are Shake It Up Babies, Baby Shower and Dummi Bear Express. The first, Shake It Up Babies, requires you to move the paint mixing machine with Phil and Lil attached to it in order to capture the bouncing balls. In Baby Shower, you control baby Dil and shoot the other babies with the water hose to keep them away. Finally, Dummi Bear Express requires you to knock the gold stars out of the air to wake up the Dummi Bears.
So, "whodunnit?" It's your task to find out in Rugrats Mystery Adventures. ~ Lisa Karen Savignano, All Game Guide
