Bad news everybody!

Okay so this\'ll be short, but in all likelihood, I am going to be shutting this page down. It\'s expensive (very), and I do not think it\'s needed anymore given the success of GOG.com, Abandonia, and a few others. I simply don\'thave the time to keep it up and running, nor can do I have the time to make it the kickass community that I think it needs to be. I tried to ping abandonia about taking it over, but I never got a response. if anyone else has any alternative ideas, drop me a line at admin at hotud.org and we can figure something out.

Scooter's Magic Castle is a fun edutainment title from EA*Kids, a superb but sadly short-lived series by Electronic Arts. Set in a cartoonish castle environment, the game includes 25 learning games and activities for children aged 5-8. A new game is waiting behind every castle door and stained glass window.

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!
