It's a special delivery for your PC! Living in a virtual house in your computer, these cute, mischievous Babyz need you to play with and take care of them! You'll have hours of fun interacting with Babyz as they learn to walk, talk, and develop their own unique personalities. Entertaining for children, Babyz is also great fun for grownups, too!
Our testers still go back to those excellent simulations, Dogz and Catz. Fans of these programs will be happy to know that now there's Babyz, which Mindscape is calling the "next generation" of a virtual life form. Yes, this enjoyable program lets you take care of your very own virtual baby!
After you choose a baby from the adoption center, you can talk to it through your computer's microphone- the babies respond to sounds, although they can't discriminate words. Note that this program uses IBM's ViaVoice technology, which must be installed and then "trained" on your computer in order to work. This also requires the use of a headset, which plugs into your computer's microphone jack. Some testers had trouble with this process and had to play without the microphone. Others had no set-up difficulties and everything worked fine.
Your babies can be rocked, tickled, fed, bathed and loaded down with toys, and they don't respond well to neglect. As you play, your baby grows and eventually can talk and then toddle. Babyz can be downloaded from an on online adoption center and left at Grandma's house when you don't have time to watch them.
Our testers were quickly hooked by all the features and power of this program.
