Freebee Friday: Instant Video Games
Why have kids play with educational games made by others when they can make ones for themselves. Adventure Maker 4.7 can not only run on the latest computers, but is an easy to learn programming environment for making games for Windows, iPads and even Sony PSP handheld gaming machines. In addition to establishing hot spots and display messages, the software can set up timers and play animated sequences. The basic system can be downloaded and used for free.
