What time is it? If you have young children who are
learning to tell the time, Tick Tock will help them learn with the

There are several options which are fully prompted
on screen and four levels from whole hours to quarter hours, every
five minutes or single minutes. The chimes can be switched on or off
and you can choose whether or not the correct time is shown in the
event of a wrong answer. When responses are required there is no need
to press RETURN. The program will expect double figures to be entered
when required and these will not show on screen until two figures are
typed. The program gives 10 goes but this can be changed by altering
