Ribbon Hero 2: Clippy’s Second Chance is the sequel to the Ribbon Hero game for Office 2007/2010 that Microsoft Labs introduced early last year as a mean to help users learn the ribbon interface in Microsoft Office products. Ribbon Hero 2 features a standalone interface with animated graphics, multiple levels of gameplay and even storylines featuring the celebrated Clippy as the lead character.
Like its predecessor, players are required to undertake a number of challenges each designed to help them learn specific skills and score points for completing the.
In Ribbon Hero 2, you’ll hop on board Clippy’s stolen time machine and explore different time periods. With each time period, you get to explore a new game board with challenges you must complete to get to the next level. Each challenge takes you into Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or OneNote to complete a task. Discover new Office features by actually using them, with a hint button to fall back on in case you get stuck. Race for a high score with colleagues, classmates and friends, or even put your score on your resume to show off your Office skills!
For those of you who have been paying attention, we’ve done this before. That’s how we got the “2” on the end of the title. So what’s different? *deep breath* Clippy, comic strips, colorful graphics, surprise animations, multiple levels, time travel, upside-down Clippy, space ships, Greek Gods, bow-and-arrow battles, and a ton of useful Office features.
