This was a favourite at Frenchman's Bay as well. My friends and I wondered for years good we could play it again.

Man I spent many a day playing this in Cannington Public School. Managed to swipe it off the computers at Brock High as well but has been lost to time. Thanks Gered!

Let me tell you, I have had such weird, distant memories of this game. We played it back in grade 2ish in elementary school, and I thought it was lost for good.

Incredible. So, so, so happy this has been found.

This is one of the first computer games I ever played. It was 1995 and the school was brand new and had just opened. This little game was one of a number installed on the computers which ran Windows 3.1. After ~1999, this game sailed into the twilight zone of legend. No one would see it again for the next 20 years. Vanished from all but human memory...

Fortunately this story has a happy ending and thanks to Gered King and those of us who relentlessly pursued the legend. It is now able to see the light of day again. :)
