PC Magazine, September 13, 1994
"You knew they were creepy and disgusting, but did you also know that aphids are the sweetest-tasting bugs and cockroaches the fastest? You would if you spent some time with Bug Adventure. This latest offering in the Knowledge Adventure line takes kids aged 3 through 8 into the flitting, flying world of bugs - without bringing the critters into your world.
"Kids have six multimedia activities to choose from: the Bug Storybook, where they can read along with a bug tale; the Honeycomb Theatre, where they can watch bug movies with an animated insect audience; the Bug Reference, the heart of the program and where the study material is housed; the identification games Can You Find Me? and Who Am I?; and the 3-D Bug Basement, where they can don silly glasses to view full-screen bug images.
"Each of these areas is just a mouse click away, thanks to an amusing and intuitive graphical interface. (One of the highlights is a flyswatter used for returning to the main menu.) There's lots of learning to be had here, but kids will just think they're having fun.
"You may be repulsed by the videos and 3-D pictures, but chances are good that there's a budding entomologist in your midst who would really benefit from a Bug Adventure."
