MACMAN in the Treasure Caves is a program designed to practice subtraction. Macman is a character dressed in a tartan suit who is used throughout a series of programs developed by Sinclair Research and Macmillan Education and programmed by Intelligent Software. This particular program deals with the second level of subtraction from level one (1-10) to level five (up to 41-50). The level can be set or will self advance according to the child's ability.

The object of the game is to gain treasure, the user is asked to find the difference between two numbers.

When some answers have been given correctly, Macman can go to the caves and play an arcade type game while answering more questions. The game is not very exciting, certainly not up to the standard of the Psion Estimator Racer. It is less flexible as it only tests subtraction, for the age group 4-8.
