Do you happen to have an original copy that runs on real hardware? Every one I've found on the internet only works with DOSBOX for some reason, just hangs when I try to run on actual 8088 machines. Even the one I used to play this very game on in the late 80's, it won't run on that machine either.

And how everything was much better back then?

Progressive western ideology ruins everything.

OH. MY. GOD.

I remember this game.

7-year-old me played the hell out of this game.

I remember playing it until I got the "Ultimate Champion" rating or whatever it was. It was the highest the little score counter could possibly go.

Memory Lane.

Thank you for that.

edit: I can't say that this game helped me learn how to read. I knew how to read when I was 2, almost 3, so I don't have any memories of being unable to read.

"This article is about the 1978 video game."

Maybe some of you young guys don't remember the Scott Adams Adventures from Adventure International.

Now now. We have a new generation of individuals who share our ideals, and reject the globalist programming. This is something great.

We had "Mavis Becon teaches typing" and "Encarda 94"

Though I do vaguely remember playing Math Blasters and Oregon Trail

Just started my 4 year old on Super Solvers: Treasure Island this week. The series needs a faithful remake.
