    Default Help me identify a childhood favorite!

    Hey guys! I have a game in mind which really stuck into my memories for some reason, and I would love to experience it again. I remember certain details about it, but nothing too strong, I need a real PC games professional to help me out.

    Details:

    Definatley Windows, Most likely 95/98
    Caveman/dinosaur/prehistoric themed
    I believe there were a series of mini-games in it
    Cartoony
    Educational in some way
    Not at all 3D
    On the level select map thing, if you didn't push any keys, a caveman would say "Are you lost?"
    I remember a river on the level select screen.

    I hope someone is able to identify this!

    Caveman: Ugh-Lympics? Perhaps Prehistorik or Prehistorik 2? Ugh? Joe and Mac: Caveman Ninja?

    Thanks for trying! But it definitely had an educational twist to it, and wasn't a side-scroller.

    No problem, it was a favorite of mine when I was younger too.

    Educational and "Caveman" immediately brings to mind only one thing, though I don't recall him being a caveman. All I remember was a bald guy with a staff and the phrase "back to the raft."

    Use Virtualbox. You can run Windows 95 in Windows 7!

    I remember that King's Quest VII had demos for that entire series on the CD. Even back then, I thought they looked ridiculous. I forgot about them until I heard them mentioned in this video of the Sierra Tech Support Reunion. They were a pain to support because while they had no bugs, the users couldn't spell and called tech support for help...
