This is a very short and simple EGA game that helps children estimate what animals are bigger or smaller than each other. A series of zoo animals are shown, two per screen, and the question of which is bigger or smaller is given and the player presses the 1 or 2 keys and gets feedback on correctness. After 10 screens of "weighed" animals, the player is given his/her total score. [source:mobygames]
