Numbertime Time 
(BBC/Logotron)

This disappointing piece of software tries unsuccessfully to teach children to understand time. All but one of the games involve matching a picture with a time or season or putting it in the right place in a sequence but these pictures are so ambiguous that the answers don't make sense. It is very confusing to find that after school, you must play football before you have a drink and not the other way round. Similarly you are only allowed to grow plants in pots in the spring, not the summer, and you can only use a suitcase in the summer, not the spring or autumn.

Overall Impression
Not recommended

Compatability
Windows 3.11 and 95/98, Acorn, Apple Mac and Power Mac

Made by BBC/Logotron
