Phil Moore: Here's how we play. You're gonna take Mikey, our video adventurer, and move him all around this screen in every direction except diagonally. Now, as you do this, you're gonna run into our "Four P's:" Points, puzzles, pop quizzes and prizes.

Excellent...but why not just play games yourself?
27 January 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This show consisted of kids playing videogames to score points...the team with the most points got to go inside a videogame. the "game" they went in side was a lame boring game where the kids would hit "orbs" to kill the monster guardian. I think it was made from the same technology as weatherpeople's maps. The reason i loved it was because I used to laugh at how pitiful the kids were at videogames. It made me feel good about how good I was at videogames.
