Quandary Review by Rosemary Young

"The puzzles and games consist of an assortment of activities from arcade type games to puzzles putting together dinosaur bones or sounding out the tricky names. For successful completion of these problems the player receives a Palaeo card, a card with a picture of a particular dinosaur. These cards are placed in the Palaeo Gallery where they can be flipped to obtain basic information about each creature.

"The Magic School Bus Explores in the Age of Dinosaurs is targeted at children aged six to ten and for this age group it provides a broad introduction to the subject matter. With a few exceptions all information is presented either visually or aurally (with subtitles for the hearing-impaired) so it is quite simple and straightforward. It is best described as an educational activity exercise, and I did like the way in which it emphasised the fallibility of science, or how knowledge may evolve and change to the point of being contradictory as scientists learn more and more."
