Ever wondered who bumped off Humpty Dumpty? Turns out it wasn’t the accident we all thought it was and now its time we discovered who’s responsible for the death of this unfortunate egg.

Sony have done it again! A fabulous new game for kids on the PS3. The new Wonderbook game requires players to have a camera and move controller… With these tools you can finally uncover the truth behind Humpty’s fall.

This is a one player game designed with children in mind! Diggs Nightcrawler, Library city private detective and best friend of Humpty’s, is the prime suspect in his best friends death. Maintaining his innocence, Diggs has no choice but to launch his own investigation to clear his name and find the real culprit. However Diggs requires that of a fresh young mind to get to the bottom of the mystery! That’s where you come in. Meanwhile the police are asking for everybody’s help to book Diggs once and for all.

This maybe one for the kids but who’s to say mum can’t get in on the action too? This is a game the entire family will enjoy together. Its an action packed story and game rolled into one with action and surprises on every page. We already love using Wonderbook on Little mans ps3 and have enjoyed playing along to the first Wonderbook release “Book of Spells!” But its my opinion that the wonderbook’s second release “Diggs Nightcrawler” takes the wonderbook experience to a whole new level!

The game has many features such as popups and puzzles, plus you can replay chapters to score for clues you may have missed! The move controller acts as a magnify glass to let you get up close and solve the crime.

Diggs Nightcrawler gets a big thumbs up from us! Now we can’t wait to see what Sony have in store for us next.

The game has already hit the shops and is priced at a really reasonable £13.99 check it out here at Amazon

The Magic Of Wonderbook

Featuring original new writing from J.K Rowling and set in the restricted section of the Hogwarts library, Book of Spells is an advanced textbook for budding wizard students, designed to assist them on their journey to become an accomplished wizard. Fusing traditional storytelling with ground breaking technology it’s an interactive reading experience like no other… coming to life in your living room!

Using the PlayStation Move as a magic wand, turn the pages and watch the book come to life with giant paper dragons flying above you, a pumpkin fit to burst, and spells jumping off the pages name a few – it’s so cool and kids so far are loving it!

Little man got a PS3 for his birthday and is very “into it”. We are going to attend an event tomorrow where will be able to see the game in action and share a little more about it.

I can’t wait. This looks both exciting and education and could be one for the Christmas list.

Review – Madagascar 3 Europes Most Wanted (VideoGame PS3)

Little mans been really enjoying his new playstation 3 which we got him for his birthday. He was super pleased to receive a review copy of the brand new game “Madagascar Europe’s Most Wanted” which is based on the new animated film Madagascar 3 by Dreamworks.

This bright and inviting video game allows children to put themselves in the role of their favourite characters from the film. The gang consisting of Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the Hippo and our favourite Alex the lion, travel through Europe as part of the traveling circus and in-order to make their way home to New York they must put on the show of their lives.

Players can enjoy circus challenges as well as suspiciously zany mission given by the penguins.The game even includes new characters and fellow circus performers Stefano the sea lion, Vitaly the Siberian Tiger and Gia the Jaquar.

Little man 12, enjoyed the game and had loads of fun performing the numerous circus stunts. His just mega skilled when it comes to video games and seems to pick it all up in a matter of minutes. Alice-Sara 9 also really enjoyed playing the game too and often had a sneaky game once little man was out of sight.

The game allows you to play multi-player mode and we found this much more entertaining. With each mission you will need to take control over two different characters that then have to work together to solve puzzles and perform circus stunts. Each character has certain features and abilities that when combine enables each challenge to be overcome.

It’s been ages since I went near a video game but I honestly found myself wanting to have a try and admittedly spent some time as the hippo doing very little. Once I got the hang of things I remembered why it was I stayed away from video games… I’m already addicted to, too many things (twitter and blogging to name but a few)!

This is a real family game thats full of mini missions, even the toddler had a ago and although he just kinda stood jumping, he loved it all the same.

Entertaining is a word id happily use to describe Madagascar 3 Europes most wanted. Actually at times its rather comical too! It’s my opinion that this will be a massive hit with fans of the movie.

Released this October 2012 in time for Christmas
Available for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii, and Nintendo 3DS/ DS
