Designed-to be a child's first computer experience (for ages 2 to 5), this game is operated by simple voice-activated commands. Not included are the microphone and the patient parent needed to make it work. The goal is to help Marty find cheese. In his quest, he encounters giant bullfrogs and a chameleon. The tale is short—a mere 25 minutes. But given children's love of repetition, Marty's appeal should last for many hours. (CD-ROM for Mac & PC, Maxis, $34.95)
