.NET Runtime
Animal Scramble is a simple children's game that is intended to teach children to spell the names of barnyard animals. Since we're not experts in child-learning, it's not really known if this is an effective learning tool.

Animal Scramble was written to demonstrate some simple Human Computer Interaction principles that were learned in Computer Science 474 at the University of Western Ontario. Proper application of these principles should result in a straight forward, intuitive interface that requires almost no instructions to play. Download it and take a look for yourself.
