Electronic Arts is set to take you back to your childhood. No, don't worry, you can put aside lingering fears of Beefy Bob, the lunch money thief. It's rose-tinted nostalgia that EA is gunning for here.

In EA Playground, you'll wander out into the school yard in search of fun, exploration and friends. The game lays out a series of challenges aimed at a family audience in a bright and cuddly package. Frankly, it's a fair bit cheerier than our collective memory of the schoolyard.

Players make their way through the playground, moving to different areas where they'll find assorted playground games going on - some of them you might have found in your own schoolyard experience. Players go along, collecting the playground's currency of choice - marbles - and trading them for stickers to boost their abilities.

So what kind of games are available? you ask. The Wii version features seven in total, including dodgeball, kicks (modified soccer), paper racers (paper aeroplanes), slot-car racing, tetherball, wall ball, and dart shootout - a kid-friendly rail-based shooting affair with darts.
