Computer Game Review: Pajama Jam's Sock Works

by Rick Brewster


  
   In Pajama Jam's Sock Works, you help Sam sort his socks using the Sock-O-Matic Mark III. It's your job to flip the right switches to send the right colored sock to the right colored basket. You'll toggle the direction of conveyor belts, open gates and use little "pushers" to get the socks where they need to go.


  
   In order to finish a level, you'll need to guide the different socks into their own basket. You want to make sure to get the sock into the correct basket, as sometimes there can be several socks, each with its own idea of where it should go. The graphics and animations are of the usual high quality you'd expect from Humongous, as are the sound effects. Push an object and it springs into life and let's out it's own unique noise.


  
   This is a high-quality game for kids 3 to 8, and one I wouldn't hestitate to buy.
