Description of Scooter's Magic Castle

Scooter's Magic Castle is a fun edutainment title from EA*Kids, a superb but sadly short-lived series by Electronic Arts.

Set in a cartoonish castle environment, the game includes 25 learning games and activities for children aged 5-8. A new game is waiting behind every castle door and stained glass window. Similar to Broderbund's The Treehouse, each activity in Scooter's Magic Castle teaches a different subject or skill including typing, reading, problem-solving, creativity, and pattern recognition.

The game sports a very intuitive interface that is mouse-based - one cursor does everything in the game. Colorful 256-color graphics, fun cartoon animation, and good music round off this neat underdog that would have established EA*Kids as one of the best edutainment producers around - had it been marketed more widely.

Despite few reviews in magazine, though, EA managed to sell this game quite well directly to primary schools in the USA. Two thumbs up!

This is a GREAT game for toddlers! The simple maneuverability sans reading is perfect for pre-school age 3-4 children. A 5 year old could enjoy it but wouldn't gain much intellectually. The golucky soundtrack and ubiquitous easter eggs keeps them entertained in between the minigames. Each of the games comes with varying levels of difficulties.

Some mini-game highlights:

Fishing - Catch the fish that matches the request, from simple color differences to detail differences like size/shape/accessories.

Piano - play back the tune and the piano will add one extra note to the melody.

Funny Face - Arranges a random face of mixed up features, then tests to see if you can remember once removed.

Shadow Matching - a ghost rearranges the objects in a room but leaves the shadows. Match the objects back to their shadows.

Library - click the letters on the typewriter that fills in the requested letters in the book. Each word creates an animated picture, all words on each page create one coherent scene.

Frankenstein - color frankensteins skin and clothing to match the randomly generated poster

Of all the abandonware games we've tried with our 4-year old so far, this one has been the only one to not get axed from typical playability issues. I highly recommend it to all parents and pre-homeschoolers.
