    Other Comments: Like most of the Tiger programs, this one is threaded in such a way that you can get radically different results depending on how you answer, so there's a lot to see. Depending on how well you answer, 2-XL directs you to either more advanced or simpler puzzles. Different guests drop in (Stacey and Goldilocks) but whether you get to talk to them (or even know they're there) depends on which path you take.

    Music wise, this program shows exactly why I always loved programs that came with little booklets. It's a good sign when a program starts out with a song and 2-XL 's music banks refuse to shut off. The tune used for "Letter Perfect" was originally used in an old Mego program (I'm not sure which program it was yet, but we always called the song "Old Time Movies I") so it was nice to hear it back again, now in its full length version and with 2-XL singing to it. (And while the Mego 2-XL always apologized for his singing, the Tiger 2-XL takes pride in it! Ahh, the enthusiasm of the younger generation.) You also get a choice for "Dots;" you can either listen to it with 2-XL talking to you or just the music by itself.

    * A NOTE ABOUT PRINTING CARDS OR BOOKLETS: I'm attempting to make these files in the original sizes. Unfortunately computers are odd beasts, and something that looks the correct size doesn't always print at the correct size (or even show up as the same size on different computers). If it doesn't print at the correct size for you, your best bet is to save the file and open it through an image program such as Adobe Photoshop and resize it there.

    A NOTE ABOUT MUSIC: All music titles have been arbitrarily chosen by Frank and myself. These titles were picked based on many different things: the program we first heard the song on, or the project we first used it in, or whatever imagery it made us think of the most. 15 second wav samples (approximately 325k each) have been included for your convenience to be used as a reference. The running times listed in the description above are NOT the sample length. They are the length of the song as it is used on the 2-XL tape pictured.
