===============================================================================


EcoQuest is an educational point and click adventure game by Sierra, with a
large focus on saving the environment. The game involves a boy named Adam, who
one day finds that his father has rescued a dolphin from the ocean. The dolphin
asks Adam to go on a journey under the ocean to save a whale named Cetus from a
vicious manta-ray known as Flesh-Eater. Although EcoQuest is quite easy, it
suceeds in being a well made and interesting educational game.
