Shrek Swamp Fun with Phonics is an educational side-scroller for kids. As Shrek, the goal is to navigate around the Shrek-inspired swamp or castle, jumping on ledges and and collecting the appropriate item for that activity.

The math category is stretched a bit as the topics covered also include such things as color recognition, coin identification and telling time.

Curriculum covers several difficulty/skill levels, from finding all objects of a specified color, to identifying shapes, counting, less than and greater than, addition/subtraction/multiplication/division, and odd/even.

If the player collects too many wrong answers, Shrek will get tired and lie down for a little rest. There are also printable certificates of completion. [source:mobygames]
