A Mars Moose Adventure: WalkAbout 2 - The Shakespeare Festival is among the more than 100 Lightspan Adventure educational games that were distributed to American elementary schools in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
Mars Moose and his friends are looking to perform a play at the local Shakespeare Festival, but don't have the $30 they need to rent the stage. They're given a chance to earn the money, however, by performing one of three tasks, each of which pays $10. In "Backdrop," the player needs to sort props into the proper chests. In "Orchestra Pit," the player needs to match sounds to the right musical instruments, and in "Bookshelf," the player needs to organize Shakespearean scripts.
Part of Lightspan's reading and language arts curriculum, the game is geared toward children ages 5-7 and aims to teach musical instrument identification, how to sort and classify and information, and how to identify the beginning, middle, and end of a story.
