Cool, I would never have gotten that!

I don't know any edutainment games... A hint, perhaps?

It's not marketed as edutainment, but you do learn stuff as you play. The brrrr cold is the biggest clue there.

Here's a second clue for the same game:

Simplistic platformer. Always with someone.

Nope, that's not it! :P

Start at the top, work your way down.

Edit: I should probably mention, #5 is situational. As in it might be easier to understand the clue if you have first-hand knowledge of the game.

Nope. ...Is there any reason why it would be that one in particular? Genuinely curious. :shock:

The clues are supposed to be precise enough to lead you to the correct answer. Just any action game with a female protagonist won't do.

Yes, congrats! :)

I reckon some of these might be outside of your wheelhouse but I'm sure you can get at least a few more.

Ah, I see. Interesting choice! But not quite correct, I'm afraid.

The entire clue matters.
