Nursery Rhymes and Fairy Tales

Initially separate concepts these could also be mooshed together as mini-games.

You are sucked into a book of... uh guess... and the only way to escape is to complete each level, I mean, Rhyme or Tale and make it to the end.

Question: Grimm or Disney-fied?

Red Riding Hood
  • follow the path
  • avoid the wolf
  • kill (or save!) your grandma
- or Red Riding Hood's Revenge, down with wolves! -

Jack & the Beanstalk
  • escape from the giant down the beanstalk
  • constant movement, control speed + left & right
  • avoid slowy-downy obstacles

Three Billy Goats Gruff
  • trick your way past the troll across the bridge and get your tasty goat noms
- or point + click stylez
  • Trine/ Day of the Tentacle switching between character shenanigans
  • LucasArts puzzlings
Also interesting: Neil Gaiman's story based on this. The Troll wants a boy's life as payment for crossing his bridge, but the boy, and then teenager, then man, convinces him it would be worth more when he's lived more.
