Apogee enters the
educational arena with a program that teaches spelling, logic, word meanings and
reading--yet is as compelling to play as our other top games! Built with a similar system
that we used to create Duke Nukem, Word Rescue is an incredible adventure for kids who

and they don't want anyone else to read. So, they've stolen the words out of all of our
Benny Bookworm needs your help to stop the Gruzzles. He needs you to reunite the stolen
words with their meanings. Once you join all the words with their pictures, Benny will put
them back into the books.
This is an engrossing educational game with vivid EGA/VGA graphics and support for Adlib
and Sound Blaster. Using the Duke Nukem graphical system, Word Rescue has state-of-the-art
dual-screen scrolling graphics similar to what's seen on the Super Nintendo and Sega
Genesis home gaming systems. Even "grown-ups" will like Word Rescue!
