Talking Phonics Plus
Talking Phonics Plus is an educational game that helps children learn about the alphabet and teaches them basic words. The game was
developed by Elmer Larsen, and published by Stone & Associates in 1991. It operates on the DOS platform.
The game presents a series of puzzles, that the player needs to solve before moving to the next level. The first level helps children
learn basic words by finding the missing letters. In this level, the player is shown a picture of an object.
The name of the object appears below with some letters missing. The player has to correctly identify the object and insert the missing
letters to spell the object correctly. The next level is called 'Hidden' where a word is hidden amongst a bunch of letters placed
randomly on the screen. The player needs to identify the correct word hidden amongst the jumbled-up set of letters.
Once all the words have been identified, the game moves to the next level which is a crossword puzzle. The player needs to rearrange
words to fit into the crossword maze. The difficulty level is increased slightly at this level. The Spacebar key is used to move to
the box of your choice, the Return key is to select, and the F1 key is for help. Pressing ESC will exit the game. The game also teaches
children about Vowels and consonants. There is an option at the start of the game where the player can choose to play with either vowels
Talking Phonics Plus is a fun game, suitable for children aged 4-6, and can keep them engaged for hours. The bright colors add to the
overall appeal of the game.
