9. Goldilocks is a FOX!
by J. J. Guest

A huge game which you play as Goldilocks. You act out a large number of fairytales. No sexuality, but some twisted humor.

10. Mite, by Sara Dee (2010)

Like Thumbelina mixed with Redwall. A green pixie boy returns a gem to the fairy prince. Fight a spider.

As the good fairy, figure out why Foo Foo is bopping all the field mice.
