Awesome Childhood Games

Thread Starter 
Anyone else remember these dudes like old friends?

Freddy Fish


Putt-Putt


Pajama Sam


It troubles me that younger kids in the current generation aren't going to get a chance to experience boss games like these.

I only played this when my parents weren't home:



Well, not 3D (I'm a bit older than that game to be my childhood game), I just can't find a picture of old ones.

I remember Freddi Fish and Putt Putt. But not Pajama Sam?

Other ones I used to play when I was little was the Reader Rabbit games. Math Blaster of course! SPECIFICALLY MEGA MATH BLASTER. I still have that one in the attic of my garage I think. It has a price tag on it of like $130. My parents must have liked me.

Another one I remember was a game called The Cluefinders or something like that.
Some point and click math game set in the Himalayans. It was a lot of fun IIRC.

One that I always forget the name of but is my very first gaming experience was on Windows 95. You were in this hover car and you had to chase down your flags before your opponent. It may have even just been called Hover.

Holy crap Math Blaster, I used to have to play those terribly easy games before I could go outside or play something else I wanted to play.

The early Math Blaster games were so easy. Mega got pretty challenging at times, but more then that it was just really cool to look at.

Treasure hunt.. or hunter.. was a Tandy game, along with Duck Tales.

I played so much of those.
