I Spy Fun House: 01/12/10
Sean has been a fan of the I Spy books since he was two. Many of the books have been turned into computer games. We've played is I Spy Fun House, I Spy Spooky House and I Spy Mystery. After having won the I Spy Fun House game about a dozen times we found a copy of the book to add to our I Spy library.
I Spy Fun House the book has to be hardest and most disturbing to read of the series. The photographs consist of lots and lots of creepy looking clown toys, bright and clashing colors and mirrors. After a dozen or so attempts at the book there are still some pages where we haven't found everything.
We haven't played any of the other computer games in the I Spy series so I don't know how the I Spy Fun House game vs book compares to other computer adaptations. I can say though for I Spy Fun House the video game is a much more satisfying experience than the book. The animations for finding an object are entertaining, there's more to explore and the carnival world feels less surreal than it does in the book.
