Description of Super Solvers: Midnight Rescue!
Designed for kids ages 7 to 10, Super Solvers: Midnight Rescue is a great educational game that aims at improving kid's vocabulary. Gameplay is similar to Spellbound, but designed for older kids.
Morty Maxwell, the master of mischief, is up to his old tricks again, and this time the Shady Glen School is the target of his outlandish plot. Armed with paint that turns things invisible and five robot paintbrushes, he's trying to erase the school, and you only have until midnight to stop him. To stop the evil mastermind, kids will need to read for clues and collect evidence to determine which of the robots is really the Master of Mischief in disguise.
With more than 200 reading selections, including letters, diaries, and children's classics, and more than 400 questions, Midnight Rescue offers thousands of unique games to play. There are also on-screen definitions and pronunciations of more than 500 words to help build vocabulary. In addition to building vocabuary, the game also helps kids develop important comprehension skills, such as reading for main ideas, recalling key facts, and drawing inferences. The game also improves deductive thinking skills, as kids must gather, organize, and analyze information, and finally draw deductive conclusions in order to win.
Midnight Rescue is definitely a masterpiece of its kind, and a must have. Two thumbs up!

The game was advertised with over 200 reading selections, so I made a habit of collecting each unique story I find. I'm up to around 202. I also like the way that many of the reading selections are news reports or diary entries, because they are dated. I sort the pieces I've collected by date and have created a timeline. It's fun the way the stories are written, because characters and elements have a way of recurring between stories.
I often play this game whenever I lose faith in terribly-written books. It reminds me why I love reading.

Be warned, I've tried this on an 8088 Packard Bell and a 80286 Tandy 1000 TL. Did not run on either machine. The 8088 is the same machine I ran this game on back in the day with the original software. Maybe someone else out there may be able to run this.

Just played this, completing the first round, using win7 and D-Fend Reloaded. Pretty cute reading comprehension game. Can't believe I could play this game again after so many years... I think I used to play it on a 286. Heh.
Thank you so much to everyone involved in bringing this game to life and keeping it alive.
