Here is its eulogy, a collection of the kind words written about it while still among the living. They shall live on forever in its place.

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

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.

INSTRUCTIONS:
+ 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.

wow my son died at the age of 40

20 year old boy:can i go explore the world now.
mom:no now get back in the house NOW!!!!!

Child: I want to go out and explore the world!
Mom: GET IN THE DAMN HOUSE§§!

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.

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.
