Description of Crosscountry Canada

Offering educational in a world of geography, managerial, math / logic, science, Crosscountry Canada is an abandonware developed by Ingenuity Works, Inc. and published by Ingenuity Works, Inc.. Released in 1991, you wander around in a 1st-person perspective.

One of the best edutainment titles ever made, Cross Country Canada is an excellent game for kids aged 4-9 designed to teach them about the geography of Canada. You goal in the game is to take various delivery jobs drive by driving a truck across the country. The game gives you the starting location and the destination, and your task is to load commodities and deliver some of them along the way. The game not only teaches geography, but also involves a lot of strategic decisions. For example, you may have to deliver corn to Vancouver. You have to check the map and choose the city where it would be most economical for you to stop and load the corn (usually there are 3 cities to choose from). In a nod to realism, you have to budget the time to sleep, eat, and fill the tank with gas. While doing all this, you will learn many interesting factoids about various Canadian cities (ranging from the weather, terrain, to cultural differences), basic map reading and interpretation skills, time and distance factors, gas mileage calculations, and even a little economics. The game uses a user-friendly interface that lets you type in commands similar to text adventures, and the graphics are crisp and clear, even with the limitation of 4-color CGA palette. The game even allows 2 players to compete on the same computer by taking turns driving their own trucks. Two thumbs up, way up!

Note: If you enjoy the game, check out the modern sequel Cross Country Canada 2 at Didatech's (now Ingenuity Works) official page below.

Hi Kelseyyyy (and anyone else who has this question),

you must use a DOS emulator to get it to work on your computer (any Mac or Windows, after '98!). This is a piece of software that essentially pretends to be the old early-90s computer that this game was designed to run on. Google "DOS emulator" or the program I use, "DOS box". It is free software. There are many helpful tutorials that should help you successfully play Cross Country Canada, and you don't necessarily have to be a computer genius to follow them. :)

*TL;DR: You need to use a DOS emulator.*

this game was my favourite all through elementary school.
We played it instead of doing whatever we were supposed to be doing.
It totally fed my premature inklings of wanderlust.
It is preventing me from finishing my English essay right now. xD
Thanks guys!! :)
