Developed by Arxel Tribe’s Parisian Studios, with the help of Michael Bond the creator of Britain’s best loved bear, the Paddington interactive computer game is available now for PC CD-Rom and Macintosh. Paddington: The World Mystery Tour is set in a fantastic 2D environment with 3D characters, with a fully illustrated background remaining faithful to Paddington’s image. Paddington: The World Mystery Tour is available now from Mindscape, priced £19.99.
Aunt Lucy is about to celebrate her 100th birthday. Paddington: The World Mystery Tour begins when Paddington and his friend Mr Gruber decide to go and visit her in Peru. When they arrive in Lima, they discover that Aunt Lucy has mysteriously disappeared! They decide to follow her, and take part in an exciting journey of adventure and discovery, with stops all around the world! You’ll have to help Paddington look for clues, learn geography, play music and even dance to try and find Aunt Lucy.

With several short episodes that can be played separately, kids can take part in plenty of fun activities such as riding a motor scooter in Rome, sailing in Australia, roller-blading in Central Park, New York, and mixing colours to copy paintings in the Louvre, Paris!

There are 30 activities covering subjects such as speed, memory and logical thinking. The game is also packed with over 40 minutes of interactive video, covering more than 60 different locations. If Paddington gets stuck, kids won’t have to look far as there are always explanatory notes available to help them through the adventure!

Estelle Vareilles, Product Manager from Mindscape said: “Paddington has been a much-loved character since his first appearance in print in 1958, with Paddington books selling over 30 million copies worldwide. Since 1975, Paddington has been a constant feature on our screens, winning the hearts of viewers young and old. The game is beautifully produced, giving the delightful bear a new virtual look, launching Paddington into the 21st Century.”

Available for Windows and Macintosh, the Paddington game will be one of the key children’s titles of 2002.
