Video Game / Granny's Garden

A 1983 Edutainment Game by 4Mation for the BBC Micro, Granny's Garden was most commonly played in British primary schools up until the early 1990s. The BBC Micro is gone from the classroom, but 4Mation is still around, and so developed updated versions of the game for Windows and Mac OS X to use.
