An adventure game based on the Steven Spielberg movies: An American Tail and An American Tail: Fievel Goes West. At the beginning of the 20th century, Fievel Mousekwitz is a young Russian mouse emigrating across the ocean to America. During a storm at sea, he was tossed overboard and lands at New York City away from his family. He must now wander the streets, and interact with other mice and cats in order to become reunited with his family. And once that happens, the Mousekwitz family have always talked about moving west, onto the Frontier.
An American Tail: Fievel Goes West is a point-and-click adventure game. You take the role of Fievel, a mouse in a blue hat, who then moves between areas picking up and interacting with items and characters. Fievel can store an unlimited number of items in his inventory and must use these to solve various puzzles & mini-games in order to progress.
I guess you all are all familiar with this cute little animated character by the name of Fievel. He is a little Russian mouse who traveled across the sea to America. Alas a storm caught him and now he is alone. His first task is to find his family. This is also the first tail you will play.
I guess you won't need to be an expert gamer to finish this cute little adventure. This game was made with children (and us grownups who refuse to age at heart) in mind. It is full of cute characters and the ones who are about to hurt you are so grotesque, you can't mistake them for anything else but villains.
There is danger close by as well. You might get captured and that's the end of the game, but if you're quick enough you needn't worry.
Besides puzzles (which are really simple) this game features some cute little games (which will amuse you, but won't really be a challenge, because the games aren't that hard).
You will need to collect some things and bring them to the right place, so you should know how to access your inventory. You need to move the 'cheesy' (play the game, you'll see why) pointer to Fievel and when the arrow is red you're able to enter the inventory. The things you have there can not be randomly used. If you can use it the little button will say use/give; or something like that. Otherwise it will just say drop.
If you drag the pointer across the screen you'll see the places where you can exit and you'll see to whom you can talk. If there's something really out of place (like marbles in a mine) then that's what you can pick up).
It's all strait forward and simple (did I mention how cute I find all of this). The music isn't really annoying, but it's not a score I'd like to listen to over and over again. The graphics are somewhat strange. You get some really nice pictures, but at other places you get the feeling like the picture would be out of focus.
The controls are simple and you only need to press escape to get to the game menu. Although this is an easy game, you should save every now and again, just so you won't need to restart if you by any chance make a false move.
Overall I give this game a 4. The cuteness element is almost overwhelming. The graphics are nice enough and the sound is OK. For an adventure game made for children this is a good game. It will draw the little one's attention and will make them think every now and again. But the game just lacks that certain something to make it a five pointer.
A fun game for kids based on the Disney movie of the same name, Fievel Goes Westfollows the adventures of a young mouse Fievel as he searches for his family in the New World. Both the interface and puzzles are a marked improvement over Capstone's frustrating Homey D. Clown. There is a few action sequences, but they are easy. Overall, a good introductory game that's fun for the whole family.
