Quick facts for kidsRugrats Adventure Game
Rugrats Adventure Game is an educational adventure game based on the Rugrats television series. It was released for Microsoft Windows and Macintosh on September 30, 1998.

Plot and gameplay
The plot sees evil alien Queen Angeleeka (Angelica) kidnap the mighty Reptar (Tommy's action figure), and the main characters' goal is to rescue Reptar so he can defeat the Queen. This plot is contextualised as the imagination of the babies, and the game itself is set in Tommy's family home.
The game is a standard adventure title that plays like an interactive episode of the cartoon—even getting an in-game title of "Reptar vs. the Aliens", after the in-universe TV film the babies were watching at the beginning of the game—where the player collects items, interacts with characters, and solves puzzles to advance. The game aims to teach problem-solving, strategy, critical thinking, logical reasoning, memory, and mouse and keyboard skills.
