Entertaining English programs encourage children to
develop and apply their English language skills in an imaginative
and constructive way.
The stunning graphics and wide range of options available ensure
that children return to the programs again and again, enhancing
their skills naturally and effectively.
Busy is program one. Subject: Verbs and adverbs.
Busy performs an enchanting range of actions, which the player has to describe.
150+ different verb/adverb combinations are accepted, and the actions are
replayed to music if successfully described within the time limit. High scores
are earned for imaginative or unusual descriptions.
a) Skill Level (1-5), which sets the time limit
b) Choice of Verb Only/Verb + Adverb
How To Play Busy
Press ESCAPE to end a game, and only press BREAK when you want to load
Press RETURN when you have typed in each verb or adverb. If the computer
"bleeps", your word is not accepted - so try again!
Timeslip is program two. Subject: Past And Present Tense
A rocket collects each verb in turn from a series of sentences, and
travels back in time to an eerie cave.
The player has to choose or type in the correct past tense of the verb,
and also avoid a collision with the manic pterodactyl, as this destroys
the laser defences, and lowers the scores!
