5.0 out of 5 stars Special Instructions for MAC users March 1 2007
By Whirlyball - Published on Amazon.com

The response time from running via the CD is incredible slow. To fix it follow these instructions received from the manufacturer. Worked GREAT for me:

On Macintosh, you can easily create disk images (.dmg files)

out of the CDs using the "Disk Utility" program found in the "Utilities"

folder inside the "Applications" folder. Using disk images, the game

will run entirely off the computer hard disk.

Below are the steps to create a disk image on Macintosh. Note that if

you need help with this procedure, we can assist you over the phone.

1. Insert the game CD in your Macintosh.

A CD icon appears on your Desktop.

2. Double-click on the "Disk Utility" icon found inside the "Utilities"

folder under "Applications".

The Disk Utility window appears on the screen.

3. Click on "Session 1" item on the left-side pane.

The Session 1 of the game CD is highlighted.

4. Click on the "New Image" icon in the toolbar at the top of the

application window.

A dialogue window appears on the screen.

5. Set the "Image Format" to "Read only" for optimal performance and

save the image on your Desktop or any convenient location of your choosing.

The Disk Utility program writes the .dmg file. When the process is

complete, you can close the Disk Utility program. If the process fails,

then it probably means that your copy of the disk is not fully readable.

You can now double-click on the .dmg file to fake the insertion of the CD.

2.0 out of 5 stars successful mix of entertainment and quality education????? July 12 2008
By C. Yang - Published on Amazon.com

I'm not happy with the manner in which they executed the story-based gameplay. Your child's progress to the next segment is dependant on your child laboriously clicking to figure out what to do next. Even when you're certain where you need to go, it is a chore to walk Mia to the next location. Would be great it they had some software patches to make the "click boxes" for certain targets larger so Mia does not walk aimlessly into a circle when we're trying to make her perform an action on a item or simply walk a certain direction.

The educational content we experienced includes but was not limited to simple arithmetic, filling in missing numbers from sequence, knowing how to adjust the clock, distinguishing between shapes, matching symmetry, sorting and identifying numbers. My son simply found the games OK. He did not have the same excitement he had when playing other games like Dora the Explorer series. While the educational content is welcome, it always seemed like there was something missing - seemed poorly executed. In a couple of games the correct answer is not always available for clicking (e.g. the numbers are on a conveyor belt or floating inside a crystal ball so one has to wait until the right answer comes along).

The cut scenes were somewhat entertaining and the graphics and sound are decent but at times my son (and I) wish we had a button we could click to skip to the next adventure. After taking part in the laborious walking (i.e. clicking) to get to our next destination, we were sort of anxious to get moving along.

I'm having a hard time recommending this one to other parents. I'm tempted to e-mail Kutoka with some suggestions and hope they might consider changing a few things to make the gameplay more smooth by removing some of the guesswork and grind that goes inbetween segments as well as making the math games more user-friendly. While other reviewers were excited about this, I'm quite dissapointed right now but hopeful. I'm hoping to get some more gameplay out of this one; I hope when my son gets older there is replay value in trying the game at a harder level. I happened to purchase another Kutoka game at the same time which my son and I haven't tried yet. I only hope it's much better than this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars What I was hoping for Nov. 9 2006
By S. Lopez - Published on Amazon.com

My daughter is 6 years old and is reading well, but she may have a learning disorder with math. The jury is still out on that. This program was exactly what I had hoped it would be. It is fun, and my daughter gets caught up in the story. She gets very excited when she gets the hang of doing the problems. For the most part, the program is appropriate for her skill level. The activities push her, but are not so difficult that she becomes too discouraged. I do have to sit with her and help her with some of the math activities, but she is willing to try to do the problems on her own because the game has inspired her. This is one of the first academic type of activity we've done where she has actually asked me to let her do it on her own and doesn't want my help most of the time. Each section of the adventure has a smiliar pattern to it, and learning to use the program is very intuitive. Whenever you need help you just click on Mia's face, and that has always been enough to figure out how to get going in the right direction. Each time the program runs it is slightly different, which is also a nice feature. We have not used the program on the more advanced levels yet, but so far we've been very pleased and would probably purchase other programs by this company.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun challenging game May 7 2007
By Elaine Earl - Published on Amazon.com

I teach computer classes to children and needed something for my older kids that would really challenge them and this works great! The graphics are colorful, the instructions are clear and helpful and Mia has her own little personality which comes out in places that you don't expect - ie, if you wait too long to move she starts tapping her little foot. The game takes you on an adventure around her garden to find all the pieces needed to make the time machine you need to - oops, don't want to give it away. I plan on having all the Mia the Mouse games for my students.

This educational software helps me sneak in some math drills into my daughters' day. It is definitely supposed to feel like they are just playing a game, and my girls play it without me having to tell them to give a try.
