Due to new safety settings of Apple, Treasure Hunt did not work any more with recent versions of MAC-OSX. This was corrected in the new version.
March 1st, 2016: Update
The game itself remains unchanged. The regular applications by professionals confirm our decision to preserve Treasure Hunt as a ‚classic‘ 2D-game. However, we added new therapeutic materials and work sheets.

In the fourth version some letters in Level 1 are already on a fixed place. This makes Level 1 easier for younger children or children with spelling difficulties.
For each level a homework sheet is available. The sailor’s certicifate can be printed by the therapist independently from the game. Finally, there is an arts-and-crafts sheet of a treasure chest.

In the third version, the treasure is shown. When the sixth starfish is placed on the map, a small treasure chest appears. By clicking on it, the treasure can be seen. Click again and you come back to the treasure map and with ‘continue’ to the sailor’s certificate.

The second version contains several changes based on the feedback of our users. In Level 1, the letters have to be arranged only twice. In Level 2, a board shows how many hidden mice there remain. Moreover, the music can be turned on or off by clicking on the eighth note in the bottom left corner of the screen.

In the first version, the letters in Level 1 have to be arranged three times. Several users report that this is too frustrating for younger children or children with ADHD.
