Help with educational game titles from the 80's.

Recommended Posts

Hopefully someone can help me with this! Back in 1984/85 we had a couple educational games on our classroom computer. Of course back then all the schools had Apple II computers only. Both of them were math games. One you were in a haunted mansion and had to solve math problems to get from room to room and then get out. A lot of the problems were set up like this: 3 _ _ =10. Like you had to determine the order of operations as well. The other was a dinosaur game where you would answer math questions and the dinosaur would "fart" (I'm not kidding) on the questions you got right.

 

Anyone know what the titles of these games were? My wife was a teacher she suggested they might have been educational only programs that weren't available to the general public, thus why I've had a hard time finding them. Although I did find the game "Oh Deer!" and I think it was educational only, too. But that was because I remembered the title!

There were a number of games released as an educational bundle for the Apple IIe. I forget the title of the series, but I'm pretty sure that "education" was a component of the title. They came in volumes. One game that I never got to finish was called "Mystery Museum" IIRC. It was a sort of Nancy Drew style history lesson that took place in a museum (after hours, of course). Anyway, a number of those volumes have made it to the abandonware sites.

We used to have some sublogic or prologic titles too... the only one I really remember required you to fill in sections and write a story... can't remember any titles now though.
