Description from the packaging.

The most amazing way to improve 3 critical language skills.

Imagine exploring a jungle because you know how to spell eerie. Finding a treasure because you know what weird means.

Well, that's what this program is all about. The unusual. The outlandish. The amazing.

But the most amazing thing about it isn't the content. Although it's right out of the Ripley's Believe It or Not! archives.

It's not that the game is part adventure, part arcade, and entirely fun.

When you get right down to it, it's not the caves or the trap doors.

What is really amazing about How Do You Spell Adventure? is that kids like to play it. And that spells better grades in reading, vocabulary and... well... spelling.

Reading Comprehension.
You increase a kid's interest in reading when you give them something interesting to read. That's what the Ripley's content is all about. Believe it or not.

Five levels of difficulty, 6,000-plus questions and 1,500 vocabulary and 2,500 spelling words make for a different adventure every time.

Not only do kids travel to exotic places, they challenge their skills in two special activities using their own spelling and vocabulary words.

As Much Fun As a Video Game.
Extra-curricular activities keep kids involved in action. Especially when the action involves a mess of mischievous monkeys. Hey, it's a jungle in there.
