Number of Players: 1 or 2
Special Equipment/Facilities Needed: Hypercard and Quicktime
Subject Area: English
Objectives:To discuss and review Shakespeare's most deadly play and become interactive with it.
Brief Description: There is a short listing of all the different areas you can go into.  This includes a picture gallery, a clips gallery (featuring clips from Orson Well's film version), text readings, and even a Karaoke section where you can say lines back and forth as either Lady Macbeth or Macbeth themselves.  There is a section where it explains all of the famous unreadable lines from Shakespeare and translates it into regular vernacular.  Really very well done.
Entry Capabilities Required: Allocate your Hypercard to 5,000k and 256 colors for it to work at all.

Rating: (1-5)

Strong Points: excellent graphics, and it made Shakespeare easy to follow.
Weak Points: Unless you know something about setting up computer properties, you will never get the game running.
