Multimedia World, April 1995

"Most kids in our urban, information-age society have only a fleeting idea of what happens on a farm. Humongous Entertainment's new release gives children ages 3 to 8 a chance to explore all aspects of this agricultural environment.

"Over 30 locations may be investigated in this CD-ROM, from the chicken coop to the farmhouse. More than 200 animals, plants, tools, and machines are defined and explained in detail. What is a silo used for? How does a well work? Why do pigs wallow in the mud? The answers to hundreds of questions are just a click away.

"While this program does an outstanding job of describing the workings of a farm, some of the other lessons it teaches may be more important. By completing the activities in the educational workbook included with The Farm, youngsters are introduced to the idea of using computer-based reference tools to get the information they need. They also learn that there are several paths to the right answer, none better than the other. Completed workbooks may be returned to Humongous Entertainment for a diploma."

CD-ROM Today, November 1995

"Each field trip presents dozens of scenes for investigation (the farm has 30; the airport, 40). At the airport, you can climb aboard a single-engine plane to play with objects in the cockpit. Go into the terminal and you can interact with the people standing in line at the ticket counter and follow baggage down a conveyor belt. Proceed through airport security and you can examine an animated helicopter. Visit the farm and you can roam around the farmhouse and barn where you'll meet horses in the pasture, feed the pigs, and harvest corn from the field. You can also interact with the chickens in the chicken coop."

"Frisky animations, sounds, and read-aloud information pages are not enough to guarantee that kids will enjoy a CD-ROM. That's why each Let's Explore disc also offers five entertaining activities. Both Airport and Farm have an online coloring book with scenes you can color using electronic paints. A trivia game asks multiple-choice questions about the spots visited on tour. Find It challenges players to locate field trip items for a treasure hunt. Other activities build spelling and matching skills or strengthen hand-eye coordination through fast-paced, arcade-like action."
