A picture illustrating a word will be drawn on the left hand side of the screen. The object of the game is to spell the word by catching the letters in the correct order. A jumping man will appear in the top left of the maze. He is moved by using the arrow keys. When he is over the correct letter, press Space or ENTER to catch the letter. The letter will be redrawn at the bottom of the screen. If a wrong letter is entered, you will be asked to try again. On the third wrong letter, the correct spelling will be shown. The level of difficulty will be adjusted automatically for the next game.
The Dragon will ask for a total to be made using two, three or four numbers. Using the same keys as Letter Maze, numbers and plus or minus signs are entered to make up a sum at the bottom of the screen. If a number is entered immediately after another number (i.e. without first entering a plus or minus sign), the second number will replace the one at the bottom of the screen, which will be put back into the maze. If you get the sum wrong, you will be asked to try again. At the end of the game, the level of difficulty will be automatically adjusted.
The idea of this game is to produce as many perfect 'televisions' as possible. A box will be lowered on to the conveyor belt in the middle of the screen. On the box will appear a sum or a word, depending on whether you choose the maths or spelling version of Spellbox. The player must then 'mark' this sum or word as being right or wrong. e.g. if the word is 'becose' the player presses W, or if the sum '5+3=8' is shown, the player presses R.
The initial letters of 'correct' and 'incorrect' are also accepted, as is X for wrong. A correct answer will produce a perfect television. After five televisions have been produced, the player is given the option of playing again. If he presses Y, he will carry on with the same game and the level of difficulty will be adjusted according to his last score. If N is pressed, the program will start again at the maths/spelling option.
Using The Programs
Children prefer using the games in small groups; ideally in pairs. However, children can use the programs by themselves or in larger groups.
To experience the programs faully, each player should have at least two games in a row of Maze Race or three in a row of Spellbox.
