Apple Looks at Broderbund/TLC
9:24 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Though some gamers may not admit (or remember) it, educational games have been around nearly as long as the game industry itself. While they may not be featured on the covers of the latest gaming publications, educational titles have been used for years to ease children into computer use as well as combining fun and learning. In acknowledgment of this, Apple has posted a feature focusing on Broderbund/TLC, known for creating some of the more popular educational titles in the industry.

Featured in the article are titles such as Reader Rabbit, a long-lived series that introduces kids to reading via phonics and other devices, and Liberty's Kids, which uses cartoon graphics to teach kids about the history of the American Revolution.

Games based off of popular licenses such as the Powerpuff Girls are also featured:

The evil Mojo Jojo has made clones of himself, and it'll take math, reading, logic and critical skills to help the Powerpuff Girls get the clones' memory chips and stop this threat to Townsville. You?ll clean up the messy letters left by the Gangreen Gang, play high altitude hopscotch to catch a Mojo Jojo clone, and solve a navigation puzzle to reach Mojo's lair. Win at a vocabulary game of matching the beginning, ending or middle of word sounds and you'll have a chance to defeat the Mojo Jojo himself. And then, once again, the day is saved, thanks to the Powerpuff Girls.
Also included with the feature are links to several other companies that offer educational entertainment for the Mac platform. Those with mini-Mac gamers at home are definitely encouraged to give the article a lookover.
