v. 1.03

This is an educational computer game for ages 4 to 6. It features 35 games and activities that focus on reading skills for the targeted age group. Robby (a raccoon) does not know how to read after a large sign is put up outside his home. After a bit of thinking, Emily (a squirrel) helps Robby learn to read by going to Letter Island by entering the Reading Rover, an airplane powered with word fuel. The player takes part by learning the letter sounds, and then the player sounds out the letter out loud, followed by a game which the player must find the correct phonetic letter sound for example. Once the player has mastered each section, a storybook based on what they have learned can be viewed in which the player can let the computer read the story out loud or record a voice reading the story. When the Reading Rover is low on fuel, the player must build words in order to refill and continue the adventure. Also, during the adventure, the clouds with words on them must be sounded out by the player. The game optionally features speech recognition, which the player can interact with the game by voice if a microphone is plugged into the computer. (MobyGames)

The installer hangs at the “preparing” stage when I try to install on an iMac G3 running Mac OS 9.2.2

I've also installed the game on a Power Macintosh 7500/100 running Mac OS 8.1 with no problem, and I also launched it on that same PPC machine, but I get a black screen during the logo video and throws up a file system error after that. Probably because the Mac OS and QuickTime versions I have (which is Mac OS 8.1 and QuickTime 4.1.2) are incompatible with the game or my PPC test computer (the PPC 7500)?

I can confirm that the installer is working (and the game is successfully installed) on a 68k Macintosh (Performa 580CD) running Mac OS 8.1 using a Minimal Install.
