Little Red Riding Hood Deluxe incorporates the familiar children’s story Little Red Riding Hood into an engaging, yet challenging logic puzzle game. It provides appealing figurines, obstacles, track pieces, a graphic novel, and a puzzle guide with 48 different challenges. The challenges range in difficulty from easy to expert. Users will enjoy that the rules of completing the puzzles correspond with the storyline of the book. Players must use their spatial reasoning and logical thinking skills to find the correct path piece(s) to get Little Red Riding Hood to Grandmother’s house, and in some scenarios, the wolf - who must get there first. Users must plan, test and refine their solution in order to complete each individual puzzle challenge. Young children are able to play independently on this game once the rules have been established. Solutions are easily checked by moving the figurines along the paths that have been made or by turning the page in the puzzle guide.
