Default Question about a classic game played back in the days in school

There was this game that was played besides Oregon Trail on school computers, I need to know the name. It's about a boy walking through a museum with a flashlight. I think it was a puzzle game. Anyone know the name of it or what I am talking about. Thanks.

Hmmm... boy with a flashlight doesn't ring a bell at all.

I know we had oregon trail, carmen sandiego and that tank game with the trajectories and hills.

I've got the disks of that game at home somewhere! It's something like Math Blaster, but don't think thats the name of it though. You would travel around through the school halls and run into machines/computers which would give you a math trivia question and after you lost it would rank you at the end! It's on the tip of my tongue! I'll report back when i remember.



Midnight Madness?!?!?1

This thread makes me all warm and fuzzy with nostalgia. Oh how I loved High School computer class because of those Qbasic games...
Oregon Trail was epic. I tried to play it on Dosbox with my lil bro who is 11 and he thought it was stupid and boring. He has no idea.

^^ what's wrong with this generation!!! Oregon trail was awesome! I always thought the river part at the end was epic. I made a save point right before it so I could replay it whenever because I thought it was that legit lol

I remember playing a game on this early gen "clear, see through" mac computers. You controlled a dinosaur in 3rd person, and your job was to collect eggs. You had weapons on the dino that you controlled, like missiles and such. Cant find anything on that game now. The graphics looked pretty cool at the time.
