Games InfoEdit

Let's Explore the Farm (1995)Edit

The first of Buzzy's appearances. Farm captures all of the fun, energy, and excitement of a real, working farm. Kids can visit the big red barn and watch a cow being milked. Or, take a peek inside the chicken coop and find out how eggs are made. Help harvest the corn and feed the pigs. Don't miss the pond. Plus, there's a beaver dam to explore. And that's only the beginning. Junior Field Trips turn kids loose to discover exciting new places up close and on their own. Children decide where they want to go and how much they want to know. Detailed explanations, lively sound effects, and colorful animation make every trip truly one of a kind. Kids will want to visit The Farm again and again.

Let's Explore the Airport (1995)Edit

The Airport allows kids of all ages to explore a modern airport, with their guide Buzzy the Knowledge Bug. Kids can visit over 40 location, from hangers, to control towers, to cockpits. Items in each location can be clicked on for either amusing animations, or to ask "What is This?" which will take them directly to the encyclopedia page describing that item. The encyclopedia has more than 200 descriptions in it. It also has an index, to jump directly back to interesting items. The encyclopedia is text, but Buzzy can also read the text for young players.

Let's Explore the Jungle (1995)Edit

The Jungle allows children to explore Humongous versions of the South American, African and Southeast Asian jungles, and learn about some of the animal and plant life there. You can learn about animals like elephants, jaguars, crocodiles, monkeys, pythons, tigers, gorillas and others. Like "The Airport" and "The Farm" titles, this game features Buzzy the Knowledge Bug as a guide. He reads aloud questions, answers, and the names of objects. In addition, he provides tips and suggestions and points out interesting facts.

These games were written using the SCUMM engine and can thus be played on additional platforms by using ScummVM.
