The theme is appealing. Become a roadie, traveling the countryside with a hot new rock band. Their goal is to make a full, ten-scene video that will propel the band to stardom. But the cash needed to shoot the video must be earned as the tour progresses.Situations arise throughout the virtual trip that require math skills - paths must be chosen, areas measured, change counted and pizzas equitably divided. Each correct solution increases the amount in the band's piggy bank, while incorrect answers are costly. The band is periodically invited to visit the recording studio and use acquired income to purchase music-video scenes. Manipulation of variables such as background and foreground content make these scenes great fun to create and personalize. The scenes build upon each other, so that by the end of the tour the user has compiled a full-length animated video that s/he can save and display for family and friends.
