DescriptionDino Spell is a shareware educational title featuring the characters Derik the Dinosaur and Rex the Tyrannosaurus. It is a single player game that teaches basic spelling for the age group 7-12.
The story behind this game is similar to others in the Dino Trilogy. Rex the Tyrannosaurus is not good at spelling and is jealous of Derik the Dinosaur who, because he pays attention in class, can spell well. Rex and Derik both like apples and strawberries and Rex skipped school to hide them all. Derik can find them but he must answer a spelling question before he can eat what he's found. The challenge is to recover all the fruit and record a high score.
The game consists of a maze. The player must guide Derik around the maze until some fruit or an obstacle like one of Rex' fake trees is encountered, at this point a spelling question is triggered. Rex appears when some fruit is found and shows Derik, the player, a 'Spell the Word' question. In this question the player is shown a list of words and a part completed word which is one of the words on the list. Their task is to type in the full word using the mouse and the on screen keyboard.
The player faces a different kind of challenge when other obstacles are encountered. In the "Pick the Correct spelling" puzzle the player is presented with a collections of letters only one of which forms a correct word. These challenges score bonus points and are not necessary to complete the level. When the level is completed, i.e. all the fruit has been found, a harder level with more challenges is presented.
The game uses the keyboard to move Derik and the mouse to solve the problems.
