"There's a little boat in my teacup!"

Funny, I was just playing this with our daughter about two weeks before it was announced for iPhone - now there's one more app on there that threatens to keep my iPod in her hands...

I'm just going to have to bite the bullet and buy an iPhone 4 for myself so she can have the iPod one of these days.

(It's a good remake, but I kinda miss the old "New and Enhanced" version - I like the all hand-drawn graphics better than the mix of cartoons and CG.)

The Manhole is an entirely open exploration children's game. There is no goal beyond to explore. It's a beautiful, whimsical environment filled with many characters and things to do. Think the interface of Myst, only geared towards kids (no puzzles, though some cleverly hidden things).

It started life in HyperCard as Cyan Worlds' (then Cyan, Inc.) first game. This is a port of the redone Masterpiece CD-ROM edition which was done a year after Myst.

Is this geared towards boys/girls? The reason I ask is my 5 year old nephew is autistic and he cant play games any more difficult than say, "Fly Flap" or "Poppin". This really frustrates him because we wants to be like everyone else but even tilt driving games are beyond his abilities. Reading Malfhok's description made me think this might work for him. Sorry to lay all that out there but can someone advise me? Like Songbird said, a video would help.
