I've been trying to track down an educational game I played at primary school. This was in the UK, and would have been around 1994 to 1996. The game was based on Jules Verne's Around the World in 80 Days; as I recall, you played as two children following the same route that Phileas Fogg took around the world, with various educational minigame/puzzle style activities at certain points of the game. The only one I remember at all clearly is one of the final ones; you are in a hot air balloon, and need to jettison items to stay aloft, by selecting the heaviest item from the list. I think some of the listed items were a teddy bear (possibly) and a cello (certainly).
We used to play the game in pairs over several sessions, so I believe the game had some way of storing each student's progress; I think my friend and I might have been the first (only?) pair to complete the game and make it all the way around the world.
Searching the internet for the game the only potential match I have found is Sherston Software's Around the World in 80 Days for the Acorn Archimedes. This fits the time period, and it's educational software from a UK based company, which also fits. But I've been unable to verify as I can't find any screenshots or gameplay videos online, or anyone mentioning anything about the game. There are a few images of the game discs and associated material:
but these don't ring any bells for me, other than a vague recollection that we did have to switch discs at some point. Is anyone able to direct me to some screenshots from this version of the game, so I can check if it's the game I'm remembering?
