Fraction Fever is an educational video game created by Tom Snyder Productions and published by Spinnaker Software in 1983. The TRS-80 version was sold through Radio Shack. The game involves moving a pogo stick laterally on a platform to find a fraction equivalent to the one shown on-screen.

Reception[edit]

Ahoy! unfavorably reviewed the game, criticizing the graphics and "very annoying" sound and stating that "Other than the Chinese water torture, I'm hard pressed to think of a more frustrating or annoying experience for children than trying to play Spinnaker's Fraction Fever. Just ask my kids!"[1]
