The aim of this game is to use the keyboard to untie the various characters by matching the correct letters and numbers. The quicker your reactions, the more points you get. On the left hand side of the screen, you see the character tied up with lengths of rope, one end of each piece labelled with a letter, the other with a number. By pairing the correct letter and number, the player frees the character.
The cover blurb tells us that "this ingenious program has been carefully designed for younger children and apart from providing them with endless hours of fun, it will help them with many aspects of their education." I 'm afraid I fail to see the educational value of this game. It may have a use in teaching the layout of the QWERTY keyboard, but there are other games which do this better Marketing programs like this under an educational banner is a bit dubious.

All tied up in Mastertronic's TYPE ROPE. Untangle the poor person on the left by keying in the characters at either end of the ropes.
