Product Description

From Amazon.ca

In Dora the Explorer: Backpack Adventure Dora and Boots need help returning Dora's library books. Along the way, kids solve problems, figure out puzzles, play fun games, and even learn a little Spanish. Three difficulty levels and two play modes, as well as multiple locations, discovery clickables, and an onscreen sticker book extend the adventures. Joining Dora and Boots are friends Benny the Bull, Isa the Iguana, and Tico the Squirrel, but beware the Grumpy Old Troll and that sneaky fox, Swiper. With Dora, even returning books to the library becomes an adventure!

2.0 out of 5 stars Dora A+ CD Operation D- May 20 2003
By A Customer
This is the second copy of this game I've had. My three year old granddaughter is quite the Dora fan.
The first CD was apparently damaged....only the "choice" version worked...couldn't use the "game" half.
So.....purchased a replacement. The characters are cute and charming but the movement from one game to another is very frustrating. Even the three year old thinks the computer has frozen while waiting for the next segment to appear. Pretty frustrating for a three year old...and the adult "playing" the game with her.
Visually it's clever and enjoyable but the mechanics do not measure up.
Except that if the child you are getting this for is a confirmed Dora fan, I wouldn't recommend it. The little Dora lovers are a tad more forgiving.

2.0 out of 5 stars Atari must really hate paying customers!! July 3 2004
By A Customer
Well I would give this more stars if Atari support weren't so terrible!! The only reason I give it 2 stars is because my daughter loves Dora and likes playing this game because there are plenty of activities to try and places to go. HOWEVER, Atari seems to want to force you (due to their prehistoric copy-protection scheme) to keep the CD-ROM in the drive at all times in order to play the game! How ridiculous! Even though I paid good money for this game and it installed on my hard drive, it does not let you run it from your hard drive. Atari told me that you need to have the CD-ROM in to play it and they "cannot help me get around the copy protection". Well I don't know about anyone else's toddlers, but my 2 year old just loves to open the CD-ROM and take discs out to play with. So this leaves me out of luck if the disc becomes scratched after she's done with it! I think Atari should trust their paying customers a little more and allow them to install the game FULLY to their hard drive... if for nothing else to protect their investment! I will never buy another game by Atari because of this. They have no regards for their paying customers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the $20 Jan. 20 2004
By Jewl
My son who is 3 loves playing computer and is pretty advanced in using computer. This game is no challenge for him at all. While he plays it on a daily basis but only for a short period of time. For example one of the game is to click on swiper once he appears. Well, swiper always appears behind the same bush and stand there waiting for you to click on him. I found jumstart pre-school to be a much better program as far as being challenging and at the same time a learning program. There is a similar game on the jumpstart program about different shape coming down the slides and the program tells you a shape and you have to click on it but there are many of them coming at you and from different direction. Which makes the game more exciting and more challenging and at the same time learning about different shapes while having fun clicking away. this is definitevely for kids age 18 mth to 3. not from 3 to 5.

1.0 out of 5 stars Defective Jan. 11 2004
Beware of purchasing if you have an iMac - the software DOES NOT function properly. We have now purchased two copies, at two separate stores (including Amazon), with the same result. When signing in, the game does not properly recognize the letters to spell your child's name. When you click on " M ", it states "S" - when you click on "A", it states "F". My daughters name ended up being spelled SFMMT. (Her name is Maddy) Then, when clicking, the software takens 2-3 minutes to move from one screen to another, and last but not least, shuts down without warning. This product needs to be recalled, not purchased. STAY AWAY!

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work July 3 2003
I could never get this game to work on my computer, or the other infogrames Dora game (Lost City). It crashes as soon as I launch the game. I have never had trouble with any other game, and my computer meets all of the requirements. The tech support people tried all kinds of things but could not help me. This is very frustrating as my daughter was so excited when I brought the game home she kissed it.
It does work on my work computer so sometimes I'll bring her there and let her play it. The game is OK, nothing really that isn't in the free nickjr.com online version.
