1999 Software

Review:
Latest in the "Blaster" series doesn't look or sound like the others. Now grade- and curriculum-based, it features brilliant cinema-like animation and an awesome soundtrack. At the planet of lost things, kids recover toys, socks, etc., by playing 10 innovative, arcade-style, word games that teach letter sounds, word recognition, word building, etc., through five difficulty levels and 1,500 vocabulary words. The Sticker Maker is cool. Blaster links to the Internet.
