  1. Anyone remember the name of this computer learning game? I believe it was a frog or mouse and the only part that I can recall is jumping on words on a cloud and if you got them wrong you would fall and start over. You could t get to the next level until you pass everything. This was my favorite game back in the early 2000s.

  2. I remember a game where a giant monster would suck up a city block by block unless you stopped him… I cannot find it anywhere, please help me!

  3. i’ve been looking for this game forever that i used to play on our school computers. i think it was an educational game, but you were this little wizard boy that looked kinda sleepy and you walked around this dark castle and there were monsters i think. it was all kinda creepy but in a cool way. if yk what i’m talking about pls help out i want to find it again

  4. Since you know all of THESE games, perhaps you know 1 more which I can't find anywhere but definitely played in school. It's probably a CGA game I think, definitely a castle/dungeon sort of game, you start by choosing either a wizard or a knight as your character and either a sword or a wand as your weapon. Then you are placed on a black screen (the dungeon) which is a 2D overhead/ceiling view and have to randomly move the mouse/trackball around as though you're stumbling in the dark until a piece of the maze is revealed. You keep randomly trying to move and uncover more maze until you stumble upon a battle, which switches you over to a picture of a dragon or troll or some sort of adversary who poses a (math??) puzzle question to you. If you answer correctly your character will destroy the enemy with his weapon and I think earn some gold or something. Then you go back to the map screen and try to reveal more map. That's all I remember about the game but for the life of me I can't find it because I don't know its name. Please help!

  5. I plated NONE of these games in school. There was Pirate Gold (not Pirates Gold) and something about building a Norman castle and that was pretty much it.

  6. Mixed-up mother goose [1987] is also a good one

  7. Thank you! After three videos I finally found it. Couldn't remember the name of Gizmos and Gadgets and it was hard to try and google it from what little I remembered lol.

  8. This is a long shot but if anyone can help me, you will help solve a massive mystery My sister and I used to play this game on the computer and you basically played as this superhero that has a scientist sidekick (who is female). There was one level where you went into the bad guys mansion and your sidekick shrunk, so she gave you clues as to where she might be and the only clue I remember her saying was she's allergic to it. There was also a part with some type of cave where you collected rocks and the next time you tried going there it was blocked off. I also remember the guy has yellow to his costume but that's about it.

  9. Anyone remember one where you had to type and there was a time machine with pictures of famous people floating through space

  10. dont suppose you know of a game where you had to answer questions to escape from a robot bulldog that wanted to eat you?

  11. Any1 remember a game that it was in a mansion I think and there was a bird or something and it had like a kitchen and you can bake and it was fractions I think 🤔 I’ve had this me work in the back of my thoughts for a while plz help lol

  12. Who remembers a single screen bush/grass area game where there was a little ant and each keyboard letter press made something different happen!? His friend brings him out a birthday cake, and another key made him go fish in his little boat!? If I had to guess it looked like it must have been from late 80's early 90's? IVE BEEN TRYING FOR YEARS NO ONE KNOWS!!!

  13. Anyone know of two games that I think were called "Typing Twister" or "Math Twister" ? Gameplay involved a rectangular shaped board on the left side of the screen, maybe like 8X20, and there was a tornado that would wreck pieces on it that would make them unplayable or something. I think the objective was to contain the tornado in pieces that you control or something like that idk. It had to have been an early CD-Rom game for either Windows 95 or Windows 98, because I remember playing it as a kid on windows 98, but the disc wasn't compatible with XP when we upgraded to that. It seemed pretty difficult for a kid's educational game when I played it, so I think the intended age of a kid playing it would've been around 8 to 10 (3rd to 5th grade).

  14. There was this game I played when I was in kindergarten (2007) but I can’t remember the name of it. It had monsters, I think painting and that’s basically all I can remember of it. It was a computer learning game. You’d wear headphones and the monsters would make noise and talk. It’s so weird, but if anyone remembers something like that, I feel like I’m going crazy trying to remember.

  18. Agree or disagree?:
    0:54 – SimEarth: I never understood this game and I didn't know anyone who did. (Did you know what to do?)
    2:30 Putt-Putt looks like he's on drugs, with that big eyes of his.
    5:15: Kahoot! is okay I guess, but I still feel modern educational games lack the personality and content of the older edutainment titles.

  19. Ty museum madness … Sht could nt remember the name..for years

  20. There was this one game about animals and it ended with you all sitting around a campfire but I've forgotten it.

  22. In the age of white and big case computers, there was a math game. In this game, numbers were written on ghosts and they were in the castle. I could not find the name of this game. I am about to go crazy

  23. Thanks so much! I've almost forgotten some of these games! Ugh, but I still can't find one with some really cool robots that gave me puzzles related to music and prisms and ugghh, one of these days I'll find it!

  26. I played this game where you jump on a box with a question mark then a word will come up then you need to find another box with a photo of that word. I just can't remember the title.

  27. Is there a part two? I'm trying to find two games I remember back in the early 2000's. One was like a grocery store at the cash out (math) and another was a keyboard practice where there were numbers that were scrolling and you had to type the right letters or numbers.

  28. Does anyone remember the name of that computer game where you get people and a ship and travel to America and you can select people or groups to fish and clear trees build houses and more ships and you can send for supplies from England and send goods like tobacco. Does anyone remember that game or the name? It was on most school computers

  34. oh the sim games, used to play them for hours without actually understanding what to do

  35. Anyone remember an old game on middle school PCs where you had to choose a job and activities based on your salary ( I think it had something to do with time and money management) and when you would hit certain milestones throughout your life (like having a baby) it would be commemorated in a scrap book that you could flip through? I think I remember it being called something super generic like “my life diary” or “my life” or “life portfolio” or something along those lines. I’ve been looking for this game for a solid 6 years and have had zero luck. Any guesses or games you remember playing in middle school are much appreciated! Thanks!

  37. I'm looking for a game I know As AZ Circus. Probably not the name but it or something similar is mentioned at the start up. On the main menu clicking of something takes you to different games. The loading screen fades by dotting the screen with a child humming. Please help.

  38. Almost 20 years without knowing the name of Treasure Mathstorm. I didn't know english at the time and all I remember was the guy with the pickaxe and the snow

  39. There was also a game called Lemmings (I used to call it Lemons lol) I played all the time in 2nd grade. Number Munchers, Kahoot, and Storybook Weaver were the ones we played. There was also a game where you were like a toymaker or owned a store and had to choose which toys to manufacture and get a profit from, anyone know the name of that???

  40. There was a computer game I played at school in the early '90s where you used a series of pulleys and other Rube Goldberg-like contractions to evade monsters. Any idea what it was called?

  41. This is a long shot but does anyone remember an old game about viruses and germs?? You were there size and I remember it being creepy as a kid.

  42. Does anyone remember a timetables maths game with Aliens.

    Also does anyone remember Maths and English games where it had all these mini games in it and if you completed a mini game it would let your characters do a race or something like that?
