LIKE OTHER educational adventure games Castle of Dreams, from Widgit Soft. ware, has a quest, locations and directional movement related to compass points. The quest is the removal of Klingsor's casket of evil spells from the castle. It differs from other adventures in that to move from certain locations the player has to complete a series of tasks.

Those tasks range from code breaking in the parchment room to tables testing across the mosaic floor. Widgit has ensured that effort does not go unrewarded, as the time allowed for key entry is slowed down after each unsuccessful attempt, making the task easier.

The program teaches mapping, and directional techniques, but has extra tasks which can operate on several levels.
