SuperKids Educational Software Review

"Make an Adventure is the activity in which creativity really begins to flow. A number of comic strip layouts are initially selected, providing the foundation for what will become a personalized adventure. Users choose the backgrounds, characters, props and captions used in each comic strip cell, and then manipulate them in interesting ways. They can be posed, rotated, flipped, diminished or enlarged, and speech bubbles can include any dialog desired. The end product is always fun, and often uproarious."

"Our girl reviewers raved about this program. "It’s really, really fun! I like it because I made so many of my friends," was the comment of one user, who devotedly replicated each of her classmates as well as many of her favorite television personalities in the Make a Friend activity. Even users beyond the upper limits of the suggested age range enjoyed the program, noting that it was an enjoyable diversion and allowed them to be creative in a way that is nearly unavailable to girls who have outgrown playing with dolls."
