Being a later game in the Tivola's Max series, "Max Goes by Bus, Train and Ship" is a bi-lingual game
(plays in German and English) for ages 5 to 8.
Max and his uncle are at home, as an appeal for help comes from the lighthouse keeper, who is sick. Before it is getting dark, the lightbulb had to be replaced, which is kaputt.

At first, Max goes by bus into the town, visits the bulb store and other stores.
Second, Max goes by train to the port and drives by boat to the lighthouse, which is a bit of arcade

This game offers short dialogs, songs to sing along and let the player solve typical daily routine tasks.

Great description of this game in German: fährt Bus, Bahn und Schiff

Ten years ago, "Max and the Secret Formula" set standars for children's CD-ROM games. It showed the parents that PC games not have to be ugly, but can be designed child-friendly and appealing. Now, while kindergartens discover the computer, software for this target group shrinks. So, here is "Max Goes by Bus, Train, and Ship".
