One of the best games in The Learning Company's "Super Solver" line, Gizmos & Gadgets is a great edutainment title that aims to teach principles of physical science found in everyday items to kids ages 8 and up. The plot: Morty Maxwell, the Master of Mischief familiar to Super Solver fans, is back with a vengeance. He has taken over the Shady Glen Technology Center and claims he can build the best auto, air, and alternative-energy vehicles. Now he is challenging all Super Solvers to outrace him. First, you will have to collect all the parts you need for your racing gizmo.

Gameplay is a lot of fun, with vibrant SVGA graphics and pleasant sound effects. You will solve science puzzles featuring everyday gadgets such as wheelbarrows and wrenches, skateboards, and scissors. Then it's off to the races, where you'll meet Morty and prove that you are the real master of science. More than 260 puzzles and simulations will help kids understand scientific principles more effectively than school. Eight different puzzle types can also be independently adjusted to suit different skill levels, making the game fun for adults as well. And to top if all off, the excellent on-line help that has been a hallmark in every Super Solver game is better than ever. Fast-paced action, fun gameplay, and great graphics will keep everyone in your family glued to the screen. Two thumbs up!
