This game is very similar to Math Rescue but with a literary theme. Supposedly an educational game, this game doesn't seem to provide as much educational merit as some other titles, but it sure is fun for an "educational" game. It's from Apogee (creator of many shareware classics like Commander Keen), so you know it'll have good control, graphics, etc. Its attempts to be educational can be annoying at times ... Basically you're trying to find the letters to make words while avoiding enemies.
