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.
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.

you need help with this procedure, we can assist you over the phone.
1. Insert the game CD in your Macintosh.

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.
