Error Terror - Ages 12 - Adult. This ESL software program is the school version of the retail 'Word Invaders', having the same interactive arcade-like features. Instead of choosing one word from a list, there is a constantly moving passage, within which are errors that must be identified and destroyed. When errors are correctly identified the user gains points; an incorrect shot loses the user points, ammunition and precious time. If the passage gets to Earth before the errors are destroyed, the player, and the Earth, loses. There are 20 passages, each of between 100 and 200 words, and containing 20 spelling errors and the same passages with extra word errors. The passages are graded for difficulty, and the program is fully authorable - add passages on your own!
Error Terror requires: PC; Pentium 90+; Windows (all); CD-ROM drive; 10MB free hard drive space; High color display.
