It helps the player to come up with decisions in tight situations, especially those adventure games that keep the players to be alert, active and strategic.

Y. 2010 - 2011 A Research Proposal Presented to the Faculty of the College Department ________________________________ Quezon In partial fulfillment of the Requirements for Research 2 ________________________ October 2010 Chapter I INTRODUCTION Background of the Study Computers are ubiquitous. As computers have become less expensive they have been purchased by more and more families for their homes. Because of this, many children begin to use computers at an early age. Even if computers are not available in their home, children almost certainly will begin to come into contact with computers in school. Some adults are amazed by how readily young children use computers. Many children find that using computers gives them a sense of power and accomplishment. And, unlike many adults whose first or primary contact with computers is work related, most children first use computers for entertainment purposes and games. This is by no means the only use that children have for computers. Because computer use is promoted in schools, and because computers are so ubiquitous, children have a great deal of exposure to them. Not everyone, however, is comfortable with the use of computers by young children. Some, including the Alliance for Childhood, have called for a halt to......
