Problem Solving Skills Software -- The Big Picture

What do we mean by "problem solving skills" software? These are programs that focus on developing or exercising critical thinking skills by the user, rather than a specific academic discipline.

  • Puzz3D - The Victorian Mansion [for ages 10 and up] from Wrebbit, is a combination 3-dimensional jigsaw and murder mystery puzzle. Best for puzzle lovers - multiple difficulty levels help the less-proficient.

  • Rugrats Adventure Game [for ages 6 to 10] from Broderbund, is an interactive cartoon episode where kids must use strategic thinking and problem solving skills. Best for Rugrats cartoon fans.

  • Freddi Fish 4 - The Case of the Hogfish Rustlers of Briny Gulch [for ages 3 to 8+] from Humongous, provides one of the most visually captivating experiences in children's software. Best suited for a patient and curious child who likes the click-and-explore paradigm.

  • Putt-Putt Enters the Race [for ages 3 to 8] from Humongous, has the user guide the title character past obstacles to collect objects that require genuine problem solving skills. Once everything has been collected, Putt-Putt is entered into a fun race. Especially well-suited for children who like to accomplish goals, and have curiosity and patience.
