Orange Cherry's software didn't get much better than this, although there was still room for improvement. Greek Mythology is basically a reading and comprehension exercise that uses a point and click interface, some terrific graphics and animation (finally, commercial developers were catching onto using multiple colour palettes!) and some good complimentary sound to boot.

There are 8 Greek Myths to read and fill in the missing words to complete proper sentences. Again, Orange Cherry could have tripled the life of their software if they thought more about the design - the missing words for each of the stories is always the same. Had there been a difficulty setting, or the program remembered who had finished the stories and automatically made reading more difficult the next time around, it would have been a far more worthwhile challenge.

The program works fine from System 6 and a hard drive if all the data folders are placed into one folder with the 'Program' application.
