Jakers! Let's Explore Jakers! Let's Explore is a game for children aged three to six based on the television series Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks. The game consists of the twelve stories about the Irish pig Piggley and his friends Dannan the duck and Ferny the bull. Similar to the television series each history is told by old Piggely to his grandchildren about how things were when he was a kid in the '50s. Each of the twelve stories consists of a mini-game that involves performing a certain task. Each mission takes place on the Raloo Farm and its surroundings and the player can choose to play as either Piggley, Dannan or Ferny. The game world is fully rendered in 3D and the player navigates his character through it from a third-person perspective.

The mini-games involves both work and play. For example the characters get to do typical farm work such as making butter out of milk, collecting eggs and guiding grazing sheep to their enclosed pasture as well as having fun with looking at clouds, playing hide-and-seek and taking part in a paper boat race. They will also go to school where they get to do a science task involving collecting odanatas. In addition to the story mode there is a mode where the player can more freely explore the farm and the other locations of the game, such as the apple garden, the lake and the village. The game is full of animals and plants which the player can choose to photograph. They are then added to collector's book where the player can read more about them. [source:mobygames]
