Several decent games, with a great quote data base.

The Good
I absolutely LOVE Dr. Floyd. He pops up at user determined intervals with a funny quote, or pithy comment. Using the computer's clock and calender, he dresses appropriately for the time and date! Near Christmas, dressed like Santa Claus, he tells Christmas jokes.

Kye was the most addictive game in the line-up. With 25 very challenging levels, it took months for me to play them all. A game of skill and logic, it still challenges both children and adults

Several of the other games are also fun to play, and with so many levels, you can take years to master them all.

The Bad
I am not a fan of the puzzle games. My children love them, but I never was able to get interested in them. I am also very disappointed that the package is no longer available. Other than that, I love everything. I have installed Dr. Floyd on every computer I have owned for more than 10 years.

The Bottom Line
A really fun package of assorted games, with a "pop-up" host who tells funny jokes, makes pithy remarks, and has a huge assortment of quotes.
