Number Munchers isn’t the only educational computer game I played in the 1990s. I played many other games, most of them made by The Learning Company. TLC was truly one of the greatest videogame developers of all time; they made over three dozen games, and…
Actually, now that I’m older, I can clearly see that they only made about two or three games. But they called them different things, and so I thought they were 100% different. Tricky Learning Company!
To show this off, here’s a video of me playing Treasure Mathstorm. In this game, you climb a mountain about 300 times, and you solve fun challenges like “tell what time it is” and “weigh things on scales.”
And here is Treasure Cove. It’s kind of the same game, only now you have to answer language questions, not math questions. And it’s underwater, and there are sharks. How cool is that?
And that’s your nostalgia blast for today! I didn’t have enough time to record footage from two other games in this series, Treasure Galaxy and Treasure Mountain, but I can assure you that they’re more of the same thing.
