Shrek's Carnival Craze is a collection of mini-games based on familiar midway attractions such as ring-tosses, thrill rides, and so-called tests of strength. The sometimes grumpy but always good-hearted ogre hosts the carnival, and the games are all run by characters from the three previous Shrek feature films. There are 28 activities in all, including "Mudslide Madness," "Rapunzel's Hair Climb," "Three Wheeled Thrills," and "Wild Waterworks." Designed with Wii in mind, most mini-games use simple, easy-to-recognize controls to mimic simple carnival game actions like throwing or steering. Multiplayer challenges allow for cooperative play and competition.
