How the Leopard Got His Spots Rabbit Ears Productions, Inc / Microsoft Home 1995

This is an "interactive storytelling adventure" aimed at children ages four to nine. Rudyard Kipling's classic story comes to CD-ROM with animation, activities, sound effects, and music. Narrated by actor Danny Glover, How the Leopard Got His Spots features highlighted text and definitions for potentially troublesome words and phrases. Clicking items within the story triggers animations and sound effects, while mini-games range from painting forests to matching music. P.J. Rabbit serves as your child's guide to the story, with his rabbit-hole home leading to further information on Kipling and life in South Africa. It includes illustrations by Lori Lohstoeter and music by Ladysmith Black Mambazo. There's four interesting games. The first, is a traditional African strategy board game, called Mancala. With three difficulty levels, and the option of playing against PJ Rabbit or a friend, this game alone will draw many kids back for months. The second game, is a set of nine jigsaw puzzles. Each allows the user to set the difficulty level, by defining the number of pieces in each puzzle, anywhere from six to 42. The third game, is a variant on the common "concentration" turn-over-the-tiles-and-match-the-hidden-objects. Instead of visual objects, Leopard uses music clips from African tribal songs. The fourth and final game was a simple click-to-color the animals scene, demonstrating the impact of different camoflage patterns.
