My friend is doing some research on free games that can be accessed via the internet. I directed her to our Free Games Galore section, but there are a lot of games to check through. Does anyone have any suggestions for a free game that would be appropriate for this age group?

If you can find them, I highly reccomend Muppets Inside and The Manhole CD-ROM Masterpiece edition smile .

Oh yes! Manhole Masterpiece is great for young'uns! Hard to find though.

Really good adventure-ish (purchasable) titles for that age group include Cluefinders, Humongous Entertainment games (Freddy Fish, Putt-Putt, Spyfox etc), and Dr Brain games.

& David Macaulay's "The New Way Things Work" & "Pinball Science" are especially worthy of note. They are funny and you can't get very far without learning quite a bit laugh

There are many free (& educational) fun sites for kids online ~

But free adventure games for children are harder to find. I googled and found these possibilities

Hope something on here is helpful!
