Arcadia Alston Software Labs 1996

This programme is designed to teach spelling, logic, memory skills and general knowledge to children aged 8 to 11. The bright, colourful opening screen offers a choice of three games, hangman - with a walk the plank theme complete with shark - matching the hidden pairs, and wordsearch. Every time you succeed in one of these puzzles, you earn coins in the bank, which can be used to play one of three games, a Tetris variant, an infuriating little rocket landing sim, and a space blaster. (The rocket landing is only infuriating because mine kept crashing, my 8 year old tester had no problem with it.) The whole concept is very simple and very effective, both the puzzles and the games are absorbing and fun to play, and teach something useful as an added bonus.
