Animorphs: Know the Secret is a 2000 game for Microsoft Windows. It is based upon the popular Scholastic book series Animorphs by K. A. Applegate.


Four of the Animorphs face off against three Hork-Bajir.

Gameplay in Know the Secret involves the player playing as each of the five Animorphs (before Ax) as they investigate why Yeerk operations have slowed down. In a mix of platforming, puzzles, and problem solving, the player can switch control between four of the Animorphs; Tobias is stuck as a hawk and gives clues to the player.[1] While solving this mystery, the Animorphs have access to a number of different animal morphs they can change into, totaling 20.[2] Using the different morphs and characters effectively is the key to beating the game.



In SuperKids's review of Know the Secret, they gave it a 2/5 for "educational value," a 4.5/5 for "kid appeal" and a 4/4 for ease of use.[3] Community reviews on GameSpot were much less positive. The average review was a mere 2.5/10.[4] User reviews on Moby Games gave the game an even worse rating than GameSpot's: a mere 1.1.[5]
