Summary

A great use for an old computer.

The Good

Unlike most early educational games, Adventures in Math is actually fun to play. :-) This is coming completely from the biased viewpoint of a male, but the premise of answering math problems to explore a castle takes the repetetiveness out of math drills. The problems get progressively harder the deeper you delve into the castle.

The Bad

It is written in BASIC, so it isn't the fastest thing in the world.

The Bottom Line

Adventures in Math is a great game to give to a younger kid along with that old clunker in the basement. It's actually fun to play.
