Although the world habits dangers of violence and gore,
a young child's task is mostly to play
and to explore.

The job of a mother involves knowing when to hold your child back from the dangers of the world, and making sure the child can handle himself when he becomes too old for you to keep him.

+ Use the mouse to control the mother.
+ You can keep your tiny child near your home protecting him from danger.
+ Letting your child explore alone allows him to gain experience and eventually be able to handle himself.

this game has a great concept, it has good replay factor, it's well done, and so on, but boy does it seem sad. I blame that on the music. I think something less depressing (to me, anyway) for music, or an option to turn it off would have made this game a LOT better. I don't mind the retro sound at all, I just don't like how sad it sounds.

that complaint aside, this is a good game. I like the fact that your actions directly affect your child and can either cause him to be overly sheltered, get killed prematurely, or go out and do a bunch of heroic things. as I said, it's a very good concept. it's just that the music makes me feel like it's a sad game.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Graphics: 4/5 [Good graphics but too minimalistic]
Sound/Music: 3/5 [Retro lovely music <3]
Gameplay: 1/5 [There's not much gameplay, just moving the mouse]
Fun: 2/5 [It's funny but it gets boring when the kid has 15 years]
Difficulty: 4/5 [It's equilibrated but you have to be lucky to win the game]
Final Rating: 7/10 [It's ejoyable but it's like a casual game, to play it when you are bored]
Ideas: You can make that if you left click, you child goes to where you are.

really fun game, but there is a huge element of chance. That makes it fun, sure, but there should be some limit. For instance, I just recently played a game where I did not move at all. Not even a little. In this game, the child grew up, left the house, found the sword, and survived to adulthood--despite having run-ins with both the giant and the blob creature in the upper right. Does this mean I am a horrible mother, or a great mother? My child survived to be a great warrior with 22 or so attack, but I sure didn't do anything...

I really do like the content. It is a cute game, which does do what it is intended in showing the AWESOMENESS of mothers. However, I think that there should be some penalty for a mother who ignores their child. But then again, that would ruin the spontaneousness of the game...
