Box ArtThe third Episode I game from Lucas Learning is actually an educational title aimed at players ages 10 and up. The Gungan Frontier is a simulation (similar to SimCity) in which you must help the Gungans colonize the water moon of Naboo. It seems that the original Gungan city, home to Jar-Jar Binks and Boss Nass, is getting a little overcrowded and the Gungan High Council wants you (playing as either Obi-Wan Kenobi or Queen Amidala) to help them set up a new city on the moon. To do so, you'll have to populate the moon with plant and animal life from Naboo, creating and maintaining a balanced ecosystem.The game has two difficulty settings and can be played at three different speeds. To do well in the game, you must continuously monitor the plant and animal populations and make sure that the Gungans do not harvest too many natural resources. As you play, Boss Nass, R2-D2, and Jar-Jar will keep you posted on your progress. The game also offers a Create-a-Critter feature that lets you design your own plants and animals for use in the game. You can't customize their appearance very much, but you can modify all of their vital statistics and give them a name. The game is designed for younger gamers, but adults may find it equally engaging. --Mike Ryan
