Reviews:

The Kid's Domain by Hilary Williamson

"I especially liked the fact that 2 players can each play at their own level. So my 9 and 10 year old sons can play against each other, and still both be challenged by the level of the game. Level 3 is not easy for an adult either, so a parent and child can play together. It is helpful that game speed can be set slower for those who are uncomfortable with arcade action - the words can fly very quickly at you in Word Attack.

"The program is rich in its dialogue, with puns, plays on words and lots of alliteration from the various characters - an example of language that is educational in itself and very entertaining!"
