This game uses fiction to develop reading comprehension skills, literal recall and literary analysis. Players read the same chapter or short story, and then travel through regions that represent different genres and feature familiar characters. The objective is to reach THE END by answering questions and judging players’ answers with facts from the story. Players on “action spaces” may act, make up rap song or more. “This is a great way for parents to get reluctant readers interested in reading stories. It is easy for even the beginning reader to play, yet can move up in difficulty as the stories become more complex,” Kati Elliot of KEH Communications told TDmonthly. Launch date: July 2006.
