The game received negative reviews. As a result, sales were very poor and Nintendo considered it the worst game in their first launch lineup for the NES. It was also the first and final game in the first-run line's "Educational Series". The game's lack of sales was a likely sign for Nintendo not to continue the Educational Series. However, the game was re-released in 2008 for the Wii [[Virtual Console]].
