Mickey's Crossword Puzzle Maker. (computer game) (evaluation)
by Eddie Huffman

Here's a sneaky way to get kids to learn. Mickey's Crossword Puzzle Maker teaches without failing to entertain. This easy-to-understand, highly responsive program allows children ages 5-8 to play crosswords solo or against a competitor-either a friend or the program masquerading as Goofy (smart), Donald (smarter), or Mickey (smartest).

Kids can also choose words, clues, and a variety of bright, economical graphics clues and backgrounds for original puzzles that the program itself assembles. Familiar Disney characters draw kids in, helping them learn to spell while encouraging them to develop the creativity to make puzzles, the ingenuity to solve them, and the strategy to win.
