What works

Most things worked (but, see below), splash screen, main screens, volume adjustment, most games, screen text's read-out-loud, and credits screen.

Using Alt-Tab to switch in and out of the program also worked fine.

All worked with Wine's Windows version 3.1/NT3.5/NT4/95/98/ME/2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008/Seven/2008R2 and above.
But it's likely not to work on a real Win3.1, since it's a Win32 program.

What does not

Level 1 - Thinking > "Lead the ladybird to the flower"
The ladybird was not bound to the maze.
A similar maze on Level 2 was not affected though.

Level 3 - Reading > "Which sentences are correct?"
When clicked all correct sentences, the game acknowledged, but did not proceed to the next image.
Could be worked around by switching in and out of the program, or clicking the sentence on the screen (activating read-out-loud) several time,
on each time, the game will proceed through one screen change, repeat until the game reached next image.
A similar game on Level 1 and Level 2 was not affected.


What was not tested

Playing throughout every single activity, since there're too many of them.
So, there might be other glitches that're yet to be found.

Additional Comments

It would have a "platinum" rating, if it hasn't got any glitches mentioned above. Tested with NVidia GeForce4 MMX 440 graphics with VESA X11 driver, and C-Media CMI8738 PCI Audio with Wine audio settings: ALSA 44100Hz 16bit, full hardware acceleration. Wine compiled without GStreamer, OpenCL, XInput2 and OSS support. This game seems to made with Macromedia Director, since the launcher executable's metadata stated that it was Macromedia Director Projector Skeleton, and there was a "Made with Macromedia" logo on the credit screen.
