Description

In this compilation of kids classic games, Hoyle brings their familiar format of internet play and colorful graphics. It features 12 fun titles: Battling Ships, Checkers, Chinese Checkers, Snakes & Ladders, Crazy Eights, Go Fish, Memory Match, Old Maid, War, Hangman, Placer Racer and Speedy Racer. There's also 2 bonus games to be found - The Music Game (similar to Simon), and Tic Tac Toe.

By using the Facemaker utility, players can customize their own character avatar and play against built-in animated computer characters, and up to 3 other human players on the same computer or on the internet. You can alter screen background environments where the games are played to your liking, as well as adjust difficulty level. An animated talking Genie also explains the rules and provides any help required.
