Big Thinkers 1st Grade is a game for kids of 6-7 years old. In it, you have a brother and a sister that can tranform themselves in many things and that are explaining the games and encouraging kids. Ben and Becky are searching for Smart Stars around their house. And these can be obtained by playing minigames.
Each minigame is covering a field: for example, in the living room, kids can express themselves through an art activity while in the library, they can practice their geography without forgetting the time telling in the kitchen. Each activity met with success will be rewarded with Smart Stars that can be used for a challenge. Some minigames, like the time telling, have different difficulties: it can be more objects or thougher questions.
The games are really varied and use mechanics that you still find today in educational applications. So, yeah, I do think that Big Thinkers 1st Grade can be still in use nowadays. However, what may be a little hard to get past at is the graphics. What will follow is pasted from my review of Big Thinkers Kindergarten.
Not that I mind old graphics, as you know. After all, I began playing with Super Mario Bros and Doom II triggered a real passion. But some of them aren't aging well. Big Thinkers is among them. It's like seeing an old cartoon. True, back then, these were frequent in the adventure genre. However, today, it seems not at all clear. There are many information on the screen that it's nearly making you scream that it's not user-friendly. I understand that the education behind is probably the main reason but I don't care about words like Pantry or Rightly, though I suppose that for the kids, it's showing them something that is obvious for the adult.
Anyway, you can interact with nearly everything, as far as your cursor is a white arrow. As an adult, it can seem to be too much but for a kid, it's amusing. Myself, I got intrigued by what can happen.
If I have to say something for the soundtrack, it's correct. It's more the voice acting that is a pain in my ears, mainly Ben's voice. I'm always under the impression that he tries to be louder than Becky.
Big Thinkers is in English. Total English. I don't know if there were any translated version because it would have been interesting for the other languages. If as a teacher or a parent, you have no problem in English as second language, you can guide your kid in the game. If some activities can be easy to understand, like the art or music activity, self-explanatory or like the money one where you can guess that you need to pay items, others require knowledge of English vocabulary - it's nicer to understand the stories that the kid is imagining or the questions in geography. Anyway, 10 activities can be played by non-English speaking children.
Big Thinkers 1st Grade is a good educational game, whether for the classroom or for home. The graphics may have aged not so well but the rest is still "modern".
Ah and if you don't manage to find how to exit the game, put your mouse at the bottom of the screen, the menu should appear. It's sad that there is nothing to indicate it though.. says 1st grade but fit for kangaroos. The in game cursor is so all over the place. It behaves worse than a blowfly on a hot day. Seriously, I think the in game cursor needs some smart stars.
I'm here going to go against the popular flow and give this a big thumbs down. Granted the reason for that thumbs down is largely for the reason stated above, however other than a simple port, no other work has been done to the game to really remaster it. The graphics are outdated and need some serious makeup, more so than Dolly Parton in the morning and as for customer service in trouble shooting it's scarcer than finding water on the sun. The reason for this is because the original company which developed this 'Humongous Entertainment' no longer exists and were bought out and bedded by more partners than Zsa Zsa Gabor.
This Humongous Washington based company was strictly focused on producing educational entertainment (edutainment) from which many franchises sprang such as Pajama Sam, Spy Fox and Freddi Fish. Even way back at the time of release (1997) this particular franchise known as 'Big Thinkers' of which there were 2 episodes with a 3rd in the pipework\u2019s but thwarted due to the enemy of Bankruptcy. This series was never well received in comparison to the others and publically received reviews in the newspapers and magazines as something that is 'yawnful', 'dull', 'non-captivating' and that it 'failed to ignite'.
The problem all stemmed from the two main characters, your first introduced to Ben and Beck Brightly (actor Mike Shapiro and Actress Karen Kay Kody) through a jingle similar to an oompa loompa song on speed. Then they simply follow you around a house with zany animation transitions that would only make sense if this game was a MK Ultra experiment. They constantly spit out puns that will make you hiss like you\u2019re a vampire being shown garlic and as said before you will want to have the cursor arrested for drunken and disorderly conduct.
The objective is to find 12 minigames in the house which will test you on various subjects from maths, geography, which colours make what colours, painting, joining pictures to words etc. Unfortunately there's no shooting gallery where I can enjoy a 'brightly' blood bath. Once you've been rewarded enough smart stars in each category you can travel to the garage where there is a big minigame which will test you on all random categories and reward you with big smart stars and a certificate which shows up in your lounge.
All minigames are unfortunately tedious thanks to a cursor which wanders around spasmodically like a fretted jumbuck. Everything being happy in game while you\u2019re trying to harness a wild stallion cursor only compounds the frustration. Yes happy, happy, song, song, smile, smile, stab, stab, cursor, delete.
Below is someone's else\u2019s review of the game. Did he have a working cursor?
