School is back in the house sucker and this time you will learn!
Wild Science Arcade is an educational game which tries to be fun while teaching you things, but you might not learn just as much as you could.
You are an assistant at science classes. You and your classmate Edison will conduct experiments. You’ll be in charge of the machinery.
The point of the game is, to get the ball from one end of the room to another while completing some tasks on the way.
Apart from aiming and shooting the ball (which would be nothing more then a miniature golf clone) you can change the physics of the room. At first you will be able to only change the power of the shot (and naturally aim), but later on you will be able to change the material of the ball, the friction and the gravity of the room. Not all possibilities will be available in all rooms.
The ball will respond accordingly to the physics of the room. If you lover the gravity below zero, the ball will start floating toward the ceiling and if you choose a stone or iron ball and really increase the gravity you’ll hardly move the ball at all.
So this is basically a science experiment of how different materials react to one another in different environments.
The game is somewhat challenging and it is more likely that you’ll try different environmental settings and play a shot, instead of calculating it all carefully. That is why I guess the game is not much more educational then a slightly more advanced miniature golf. Still it’s quite fun and it might keep you busy for a while.
Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.
