My wife fondly recalls playing the original Mixed Up Mother Goose (1987) as a kid, so naturally, this was one of the first titles I searched for. Created by Roberta Williams of King’s Quest fame, this game sends you on a Mother Goose-themed scavenger hunt to find various objects for nursery rhyme characters. After playing the original version several times, I’ve upgraded to the 1991 VGA remake, which retains the same gameplay as its precursor but upgrades the graphics, sound, and interface.
Sadly, this classic title isn’t available through Steam or GOG, but if you’re industrious enough, you can find it with a Google search and emulate it in DOSBox. Or, if you like to toe the line legally, you can buy an old copy on eBay and run it on a vintage PC. It’s still fun either way!
