The worlds friendliest and most hyperactive tiger bounces onto PC screens in this brightly coloured platform game. Tasked with collecting honey pots for Pooh bears party, Tigger stomps and jumps and ducks and dives across the game levels with his typical unwavering optimism. During his adventure, Tigger will bump and bounce into his other friends from the Hundred Acre Wood too. In typical video-game tradition, they’ll send Tigger off on side quests or offer him useful tips. Tigger’s Honey Hunt is a generic platform game, but that typically won’t matter to the children who make up the games target audience and who will be happy enough to spend time with the friendly feline on his honey hoarding adventure.
Tigger’s Honey Hunt will install on modern PC’s by simply inserting the CD and following the on-screen prompts. During installation, you should make a note of the directory the game is installed to. On our Windows 8 PC, we found that the short-cuts that the installer created were incorrect. If you click on the games short-cut on the Start Menu/screen and the game does not launch, we recommend that you delete the shortcut and create it again manually. To start the game you must run the “Launcher.exe” program in the Tiggers Honey Hunt directory.
Playing the game
The game will launch without any special settings. Before starting your first game, on the Launcher screen, click on “Video Settings”. There are only two settings, Low detail and High Detail, so make sure to select “High Detail”, then click on “OK”.
If you have a gamepad, you may wish to click on “Control Settings”. Since Tigger’s Honey Hunt supports up to 4 players in some of its mini-games, you can configure up to four game controllers or keyboard controls. An Xbox 360 controller will work with the game without any additional software. You can use the left analogue stick to move Tigger and the green button to jump. If those controls do not suit your play style, you will need to use Xpadder to remap the controls appropriately.
Note that the game always runs with a window-border around it. We’re not sure why.
Problems saving games:- Like many old titles, Tigger’s Honey Hunt saves its game data into the same folder as the game itself. In some instances on more modern versions of Windows, this will mean that save games cannot be written. To solve this problem you can either run the game as administrator (right click on the games icon and choose “Run as administrator”) or, better still, set the permissions on your Tiggers Honey Hunt game folder so that your user account has full control. You can find a tutorial on how to configure folder permissions here.
