One of my first CPC video game I played as a teenager, was Electro Freddy (Amsoft 1984), and since I didn't know any other games, I loved it – for a while.

For smaller children, games like Electro Freddy are exactly what I'm looking for: Simple graphics which don't distract from the actual gameplay, and a simple gameplay that learns the young video gamer in small and oversee-able steps to solve the actual task.

Do you know such games? Thanks.

Someone is bound to mention Fruity Frank.
An absolutely fantastic game, that is easy to learn.

You're absolutely right, thank you. Fruity Frank is already a favourite game of my little primary school child. And of course I too played it many times back then in the good old days. I always prefered it to its model Mr Doo.

Cyber Chicken, great for boys, but my primary school girl can't stand gun-related things. :-)

Fruity Frank, of course. For our 8yo son also Bubble Bobble from CNGSoft and Bomb Jack are working well. And we spent hours with Pentomino.
