"The big difference between A.D.A.M. The Inside Story
and The Ultimate Human Body is that
A.D.A.M. sweetens its prescription with a generous dose of humor, while
The Ultimate Human Body takes a more serious approach.
"A.D.A.M., short for Animated Dissection of Anatomy for
Medicine, will make you laugh while you enjoy a fascinating under-the-skin look
at what makes you tick. Simply click the mouse to shed one of the body's 97
layers. Clicking on most central organs, such as the heart, brings up
individual diagrams with terms, illustrations, and narration.
"Your hosts Adam and Eve take you on an entertaining tour of
the 12 body systems. Each trip starts with an engaging personal exchange. For
example, the Respiratory System begins with Adam watching his favorite
Maharishi conduct breathing exercises and then chatting about it with Eve."
Children's Software Revue, November
"If you want your kids to expand their knowledge on the
wonders of the human body, A.D.A.M. (Animated Dissection of Anatomy for
Medicine) is a good choice. There are two main parts to this program: Anatomy
and the Family Scrapbook. Anatomy makes is easy to explore the realistic (you
can adjust the skin color, gender, and add strategically placed fig leaves)
human model one layer at a time. Just move the slider on an elevator menu to
zoom in another layer...from skin to bones. A search feature finds a specific
organ (302 of the names are pronounced). New features include two new views of
the model (a side and back view), "fly-through" tours of select organs, and the
ability to rotate 3-D models of key organs like the heart or lungs. If you are
online, there's also an easy connection to A.D.A.M.'s web site, which contains
new puzzles and quizzes.
"The Family Scrapbook is an electronic photo album with 12
chapters, each covering an anatomical system. It is hosted by Adam and Eve, a
witty modern couple that teach anatomy through their daily adventures in a
humorous style. For example, Adam impersonates Arnold Schwarzenegger as he
kills a bee that has just stung him, or does Rodney Dangerfield as he asks for
a little respect in the men's room while demonstrating the urinary system.
Other options include 12 quizzes and eight puzzles in which you drag parts of a
system into place. The puzzles are only accessible with a password given if you
register the product. In all, there's not shortage of puns and fun, but these
don't overshadow the clear illustrations and solid information."
New Castle, PA News, October 22, 1996
"The Inside Story, a tour of the human body with a
humorous and witty couple, Adam and Eve, as guides. There is a 'Full Anatomy'
screen available of either a man or woman in front or back poses, including an
internal view, with even a choice of race. There's also a 'Family Scrapbook'
with four hours of animated stories that explain concepts with concise
simplicity that young and old will appreciate."
