Brief Description: This is a face paced, challenging adventure game in which you are directing Sparky the dog through level after level of danger.  You must be able to generate equations and answer complex questions in order to keep you and Sparky safe and to unlock the secrets of each of the levels.
Entry Capabilities Required: Program must be installed to the hard drive.  After which students can click their way through the game.  Using the directional keys is also required.  Due to the speed at which the program runs students must be able to use both hands to operate the computer.

Rating: (1-5)

Strong Points: the upper levels (especially the math grade indicator) are very challenging.  This program spans grades 1-6 in mathematical skill needed.  In fact I think that it may even go beyond 6th grade
Weak Points:the processor speed issue is a major weakness, I imagine many students would row frustrated with the tasks they must perform.  The Troggles move very quickly, and fast reflexes are a must.
