He already has the twitch reflexes of a five year old

Are there any FPS-type games other than the early levels of Portal which would be appropriate for my 5-year old?

My 5-year old saw my wife and I playing Portal, the puzzle-type FPS game made by Vault (who put out the Half Life series of games). On a lark, we let him loose on the first few levels, and he really liked them. By level 10 or so, the puzzles get too abstract for him and he gets frustrated, though.
We don't want to introduce him to military-type shooters (although we're fine with cartoon violence, really). The headcrabs and zombies in HL2 would definitely give him nightmares.
Are there any age-appropriate games that are sort of like the first few levels of Portal?
