Memphis Math: Treasure of the Tombs
Memphis Math: Treasure of the Tombs (WordPerfect/Main Street -ages 8-14) gives you an opportunity to play an Indiana Jones-type, bent on finding the lost Equations of the Pyramids. To do that, you’ll need to find three missiing pieces of a sacred scarab. Your search takes you to various archaelogical sites where you pick up artifacts and, eventually, the scarab pieces. Along the way you must answer a number of word problems and solve mathematical equations. Answer incorrectly and you run into some nasty situations, like deadly snakes. The program starts out being fun. The story and grahics are good, but the pace is slow, and you feel a bit cheated by the end.
