Telling The Time And Money

In Telling The Time, you have to write the time displayed in words, i.e. ten past six or twenty to five. Unfortunately, the program is painfully slow, and even Time (Stell) is faster.

Money fairs better. You are shown the coins you can choose from and you are told to give the computer a certain amount. Pressing the corresponding keys will make the coins (or notes) appear further down the screen, and are added to your running total. If you give the computer the right money the sums seem to get harder.

I liked Money, but I must say that Telling The Time was a bit of a disappointment.
