Brandon's Big Lunchbox DOS Title screen and main menu




Brandon's Big Lunchbox is an educational game for children age 3 to 7. Included are 26 games to help with reading and math skills.

The reading games include variations on reading and memory skills, matching words, recognizing letters, and finding letters on the keyboard. Some of the games are checked by the computer, however some of the reading games are designed to be played with a parent who can confirm pronunciation and understanding of words provided. The reading games also allow the words that are used to be customized.

The math games feature several variations of problem solving and number recognition. These games provide simple math problems to solve, show objects on the screen that need to be counted, and some simple word problems. There are also a few games intended to be fun such as a matching game, a game where the player can specify dance moves for an alien, and an animated fishing display.

What's in a name?

The 1991 version of this package allowed the name to be customised to show the child's name. This was achieved by supplying the name as a parameter when starting it, e.g. "BIGBOX MOBY"
