Learning Games

Sierra On-Line has introduced four new learning games for the Apple, Atari, VIC-20, and Commodore 64 computers.

Learning With Leeper is designed to teach basic skills to children below reading age. Among the games provided in the program are Dog Count, in which bones are fed to hungry dogs; Balloon Pop, in which shapes are matched; and Leap Frog, in which the child helps a lost frog through a maze.

Bop-a-Bet is an action game that teaches letter recognition and alphabetization. The speed of the game increases as the child becomes more proficient.

Dragon's Keep and Troll's Tale are adventure games with vocabularies designed for second and third graders respectively. Both games provide practice in reading comprehension and mapping.
