A new company on the Dragon scene offering to "help develop hand and eye co-ordination, to aid in teaching conceptual thought and to form an introduction to computers for young children."

I tried it on four children aged five, six, seven and eight. Admittedly, the blurb mentions pre-school chldren and that should be borne in mind.

Five mazes are presented using the hi-res screens in order of difficulty selected by the user. A cursor is moved by the arrow keys to a fixed point.

One of the programs is that there are only five mazes with no variations. Very limiting. There was little to encourage them to repeat the journey and no variety to reinforce anything learned.

There must be a ready market for tiny tots' software, but it has to be more stimulating than this.
