From a rendezvous with the Fun Police to a brush with the bouncing Hairballs, kids never know what to expect on a StarFlyers adventure.

Eight challenging games stretch your child's smarts. Twelve printable activities extend the fun and learning beyond the computer. Three levels of difficulty offer ongoing challenge and lasting appeal, while kid-friendly "help movies" guide kids out of a jam fast.

  • Grandson loves it.
    We have had this game for about a month. My grandson (age 5) is here a couple days a week and plays it each time he stays. We have several computer games but I would have to say this is one of his favorites.

  • A Real Treat
    The back story is always grounded in a real disastrous event in Katherine Diane Cadell's life. Quicker than you can say, "Oh, no!" her imagination creates a related adventure with the Star Flyers and her as Katie Cadet - leader of the pack. And the pack includes AJ who has special powers for each mission, Io, a fire breathing dog and Klanker, a very strong robot.
    The actions are basically arcade style - but a very clever and imaginative arcade. The settings are sure to please children - Planet Chocolopagus where you herd marshmallows through chocolate tunnels; Planet Bowlarama where besides jumping and climbing , the player has to make use of the different powers of the team to get past hazards and Planet Ice Cube where planning and mapping skills are needed to navigate mazes. Activities are varied so the pace of the game keeps the interest high without it being tiring.

    Getting from one planet to another requires navigating the spaceship through the Popcorn Galaxy avoiding space food junk and finding caramel power ups. The levels are Tough, Tougher and Toughest, and is just another example of the care and sensitivity that the designers used in putting together this game. As in all of The Learning Company's games there is self leveling and it is set to on but can be turned off. Self leveling keeps track of the players progress and adjusts it according to the performance, so that if you ace a game, the next one will be tougher.

    The current format in games now-a-days is to put the manual on the disk. Do yourself or you kids a favor and read it. The how's and why's and what is good stuff and what is stuff to be avoided and what is to point of it all - is not always obvious - so read the manual. The upper age range for this game is eight, but it is unusual and clever enough to please older kids besides being delicious....more info

  • Fun game that has kept my kids' attention for years!
    We got this game about two years ago and it's still a favorite in our house! My son started playing it when he was about 4. He needed help for some things (especially the end), but loved playing! Now, at 6, he still loves the game and can play the entire thing independently. My 4-year-old daughter loves to play now too!

    I love the educational value of the games. I would highly recommend this one!...more info
  • Excellent game for little girls
    My daughter is almost 6 and still plays this one every month or so. she is in love with Katie Cadet, the heroine of the story. It is fun and simple enough to figure out but there are lots of challenges that can be repeated. To end the game you have to do a more typical arcade-style activity where you are climbing and jumping on a large grid (sorry, there must be a simple description for this) and she couldn't do it at first, I had to do it for her, but now she can do it by herself.
    I wish there were more of these Star Flyers games! I would buy them all. ...more info
  • Wonderful Game for Many Ages
    I found this game while looking for learning games for my children & bought it just to see if it would be a good fit for my family. Turns out to be a wonderful buy. I have 3 children that are able to use the computer 3, 5 & 7 years and they all enjoy this game. My 7 & 5 year olds can play alone while my 3 year old needs help but still enjoys all the colors sounds and being able to collect space rocks (???) to buy goodies from thier little space store. Even though they've completed the game over and over, they still enjoy playing. Great fun for all, we are purchasing the other game from this same line....more info
