Ah yes, a good ol' edutatinment game. I really liked the music in this. It also confused me as to why it was used. I find this to be a fairly enjoyable game. It helps that I'm such a great typist. I also liked how you could choose either side. I do think it is probably too cutesy.
I imagine most games run into that problem. Being in my twenties, I'm a big too old for it. I would still recommend it. People can always test the limits of their spelling. If only something like this was in schools.
