Just a quick note of appreciation. I'm using your software for a student I teach who has many learning difficulties, but he is thrilled (and motivated) to be working with your software. Please continue the excellent work, and best of luck going forward.

We are a homeschool family and we have been using your site for nearly 10 months now...we think you're great!

Keep up the fantastic work you do!
Warmest Regards

I have been using your programs for years now and am really glad for a chance to say how FAB they are. They are better than any other I've found for educational purposes and a fraction of the price. All the kids who have used them at my school LOVE them and I think you are a very very clever man!!

A fun history game played out on the high seas with galleons, cannons and pirates. All the major events in British history are covered from 1485 to 1836.

In British History between 1485 and 1836, one craft dominated the high seas and that vessel was called the Galleon, hence the reason for its use in the game. On the first screen you will find that this period of British history can be divided into a further 6 periods. These are the Tudor Period 1485-1601, the Early Stuart Period 1603-1641, the English Civil War 1642-1659, the Restoration 1660-1687, the Glorious Revolution 1688-1713 and the Georgian Period 1714-1836. Each period has a button. Clicking any one of the buttons will take you to the quiz where you will be asked 9 questions in each level. Depending on the period there can be up to 6 levels of 9 questions each.

In the game itself you are commanding an English galleon and have come across a pirate ship. Click the Start button to be asked the first question. Get the question right and you blast your cannon at the pirate ship. Get the question wrong and they blast you. At the end of the level if you have scored more hits than the pirates, their ship will sink. If they score more than you, your ship will sink. At the end of each level you have the option to play again or try another period by moving back to the main menu. At the end of all the levels in the period you have chosen you can claim your certificate by choosing the button that will appear. This will give you your overall score in that period of history.

In the top left hand corner of each screen is a Full Screen button. Clicking this sets the program to full screen. Click on this button again to return to windowed mode.

Certificate Screen

When you complete all the levels in a period game, a Certificate scroll button will appear. Clicking it will take you to the Certificate screen where you can print out a certificate and/or save it for printing out at a later time. Also, in the top menu under Options you can move to the Certificate screen at any time, showing your progress so far. To save a certificate click on the Save button and enter a name for it in the dialogue window that appears. To open an old certificate click the Open button and choose your file from the browser window that appears. To play the Jigsaw, click the New button in the bottom left of the screen.

One extra tip you might find useful is that a number of my programs have a certificate print out facility and this is of course popular with children. You can get a free program to make those certificates into a pdf file instead of printing them out and using a lot of paper and ink or indeed if you don't have a printer. You can find the free pdf program at www.dopdf.com and during the installation it asks if you want to set it as your default printer. It is not my program and I don't have anything to do with the company that makes it but I use it myself to save on paper.

Program includes an uninstall facility. Compressed file size - 1.19 MB.

Thanks for the TERRIFIC software at a great price!

I've been a happy Olltwit user for years - I downloaded several of your programs back in '04, for my older son to use. Now it's time for my younger son to use them, and I've come back to your site to find 1) I owe you, and 2) you have more great stuff. I'm happy to pay up because I know the quality of your programs.
