Normally, we wouldn’t bother buying a flash game - especially one with a $20 price tag - when we can find so many flash games for free. But The Tuttles Madcap Misadventures is a rare exception. Designed, published and marketed for a good cause, 75% of the game’s sales go directly to the Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation, which helps children with serious illnesses and their families by providing support, family activities and entertainment. Noble cause aside, the game is actually fun to play and easy to get into.
A-list celebrities pad out the cast of The Tuttles with Bob Saget as Barry Tuttle, Jamie Lee Curtis as his wife Barbara, and William Shatner as the voice of your futuristic minivan. Players navigate the Tuttles and their two kids through a series of platformer-style levels to collect gems, smash obstacles and gather important items for a family trip to the Alamo that goes very, very off course. The writing is witty and between Curtis’s dead-pan deliveries and Saget’s snappy one-liners, you’ll find yourself cracking genuine smiles throughout the game.
You can find the free 60 minute demo and the full version here. Give the Tuttles a go and game for a good cause this holiday season.
