HODJ ‘N’ PODJ (Virgin Interactive, CD-ROM for PC, $79.95) Welcome to the mythical, multifaceted kingdom of Po-Poree, where you can view a hilarious fairy tale, play a loopy board game (in which you encounter a shopkeeper with a Bronx accent and attitude), and pick and choose your way through 18 mini- games ranging from word searches to medieval variants of Space Invaders and Battleship. This impeccable British production is one of those rare CD-ROMs that can be enjoyed by both kids and adults-and its simple menu-driven interface guarantees that you’ll keep it on your hard drive long after your other software has vanished.
