    Much like your username. [​IMG]

    This game should be a port or similar to previous Oscar games on the PC. It's an edutainment title involving pointing and clicking and yes, it's aimed at young children.

    Good old German Wanderlust at it's best!



    And since when did Cockatoos and monkeys inhabit the same continent... (or should that be tropical island)

    It doesn't translate well.

    I'm not a native German speaker, so anyone who is can chime in.

    "Tierisch", as I understand it, has another meaning -- "awesome" more or less.

    So the subtitle has a double meaning. Either "animalistic adventures" or "awesome adventures".

    But the guy's little buddy looks more like a cactus, so maybe "planty adventures" would've been better. Or maybe it's a dildo in a flower pot. It's hard to see in that tiny picture.

    Tier means animal

    So, it is right.... Animal-y Adventures

    So, does a rating of "0" mean it's a game suitable for the unborn?

    What I meant is that it has TWO meanings -- animal(y) and awesome. It's a double entendre, ein Wortspiel. Not a particularly clever one, but one nonetheless.

    From Wikipedia:

    Freigegeben ohne Altersbeschränkung gemäß § 14 JuSchG (Without age restrictions)

    There are no restrictions on the basis of the Jugendschutzgesetz on the sale of this game. The suitability for children, however, only relates to violent or sexual content - the difficulty or complexity of the game may still be unsuited to younger children.

    Heheh kinda reminds me of a McDonalds promotion they had in Hong Kong a few years back. They were selling a burger that was sandwiched between two deep fried rice crackers. The slogan was

    They're 'fan'-tastic

    'fan' being Cantonese for 'rice'. Heck sometimes they even used the chinese character for 'rice' and mixed it with the english 'tasitc' part. So bizzare [​IMG]
