Clockworks: Telling and Calculating Time Game


Max and Molly are fixing the town clock – and need you to tell the right time to help them out.

The pair have been winched up to the town clock’s face and ask you questions about the time, with three possible answers. They might ask what the time is now, or what it will be in an hour and a half’s time. Get the right answer and they’ll give the clock a quick polish and speed you on to the next question. Get it wrong and… sproinggg! The town clock pops out on its springs and you have to try again.

There are three difficulty levels, from asking about whole hours to asking about time going up in steps of 15 minutes. The game also asks you about time in different ways – from showing a time in numbers, to showing it written in full.

It’s a great little game for teaching youngsters time, and how to work out what the time will be in several hours’ time. It’s useful for those aged from six to… well, I know a few adults who could still use a test or two!

Get all the questions right and you’ll see the fireworks celebration at night!
