View Full Version : Ancient Educational Game

When I was a small child, I was an exceptional reader for my age. I would read books to my friends because they couldn't. I got a college level reading score on a test in first or maybe second grade. :max:

I blame this game (and Reader Rabbit, but that's another topic.)

I have no idea where I got it... but I know that it was a bunch of little games that would, for example, show you a card, then you'd have to choose the right word to match the picture on it. Another was a space-invaders clone where you had to shoot the letters to make up a word while a diver would climb up a ladder. If you got all the words right in time, the diver would make it, if you didn't he'd miss the bucket of water. And maybe I'm blurring the lines between different games here, but when you chose a game it'd play the Looney Tunes theme, even though it had nothing to do with Looney Tunes.

The game had graphics that were better than 4-color EGA, but worse than VGA. That'd be CGA graphics, right?

Anyway, I'd like to relive this part of my childhood, with your help.
