Rayman, Globox, and the Teensies are walking through an enchanted forest when they get sucked into a mythical world. Now you must help them defeat enemies, unlock “lums” (currency), and capture teensies to unlock new worlds. Perform well and your 'awesomeness' rating will go up.

What will kids like about this game?

The music is upbeat and catchy. The 3D graphics are colorful and funny. Up to four players can play at once (five with the new Wii U controller). Each player has dozens of controls: run, jump, punch, kick, scale walls, and tickle. In most levels you can even use your ears to fly like a helicopter!

What tips would you give other players?

Be on your toes looking out for dragons and creatures! The Venus Fly Traps can easily snatch you up. Keep an eye out for a secret door on each level that leads to a bonus level. And beckon the bird to help you across unsafe ground.  Get ready for a legendary video game!
