Simple accessibility is the name of the game here, and Olaf's Quest should be playable by even the youngest Frozen fan. Olaf ambles along with the Circle Pad, jumps with the 'A' button (press again for a double jump) and can pound the ground a la Mario. Add in Olaf's ability to throw his own head around with 'B' and that's about as complex as the controls get, making a game that's very easy to pick up and learn. Young children or platform novices should feel comfortable with the controls, while the game's very gentle pace, and limited numbers of enemies helps too. It's also pretty intuitive, with no need for a long convoluted tutorial section or pop-up messages every few seconds. New moves are displayed on signs in the background with simple diagrams, which is a neat way to introduce new ideas, and our test five year old got along without any hitches.
In fact, perhaps the only thing that may be a little bit awkward for younger ones is the double jump, which can be a little bit tricky to pull off at times. Older children, or adults should be able to handle the timing with no problem though, so after a quick trip to Mum and Dad, or an older sibling for some help, it should be back to smooth sailing.
There's a sizeable amount of content here, too, with 60 levels to play through and the option to return to previous stages in search of collectibles. Items you collect during the levels can be used to unlock hats and gloves to dress up Olaf in, which is a cute little extra.
In all, this is a perfect tie-in for young Frozen fans that provides a gentle, manageable challenge. While older players may prefer something more action packed, this is a game that knows its target audience, and is a game younger kids will love.
