In a recent review, MacAddict had the following to say about Mia 2: Romaine's New Hat, the predecessor to Mia: Just in Time!
"Mia2 teaches kids basic science, from plant parts (flowers, leaves, and seeds) to fossil bones (assemble them to form a complete skeleton) to electrical circuits (connecting positive to negative). Not only is the game a fun brainteaser, but the female heroine will appeal to girls and boys alike. ... Mia2 is a fun, challenging adventure that kids will really enjoy."
Mia: Just in Time! will be available as a Mac/Win hybrid in the second quarter of this year and will carry an MSRP of $19.95. To date, the Mia series has sold more than 125,000 copies. Post your comments on the Mia series or educational games in general below...
