SummaryA fun little edutainment program in the tradition of Oregon Trail.
The GoodThis game has similarities to Oregon Trail, King of Dragon Pass, and even Sid Meier's Pirates!, offering the player a chance to make management decisions in a historical/mythical setting. The result is a blend of RPG, adventure, and strategy. Oh yeah, and you have an online reference to all things prehistoric, which is where the meat of the education is in this educational game.
The BadToo much mouse clicking. Random events that you deal with are few, so there is too much repetition. Also, there are frequent well-intentioned attempts at comic relief that are highly anachronistic. This might confuse and distract children from the history here, and it isn't all that funny anyways.
