Similar to Broderbund's The Treehouse, each activity in Scooter's Magic Castle teaches a different subject or skill including typing, reading, problem-solving, creativity, and pattern recognition. The game sports a very intuitive interface that is mouse-based - one cursor does everything in the game. Colorful 256-color graphics, fun cartoon animation, and good music round off this neat underdog that would have established EA*Kids as one of the best edutainment producers around - had it been marketed more widely. Despite few reviews in magazine, though, EA managed to sell this game quite well directly to primary schools in the USA. Two thumbs up!
