|This pack of software includes 667
educational software titles from MS-DOS & Windows 3.1. This
includes classics such as The Oregon Trail (regular and multimedia
versions), the Carmen Sandiego series, Math Blaster, Reader Rabbit,
Jumpstart, the MS Home Reference series and hundreds of lesser known
The titles are emulated through DOSBox and require no first hand knowledge on the user's part to get them running. The front end, LaunchBOX, includes cover art, screen shots, descriptions, and metadata to help you and your child find titles of interest.
While these titles have been a part of my larger projects, which focus on preserving all games from MS-DOS and Windows 3.X, I felt a focused release at this time made sense for the number of children stuck at home right now.
All the fun of the full Retro Learning Pack in only a 2gb download! The 2gb download includes the front end, metadata, and configuration files for all of the games. The first time you attempt to run a game it will tell you the total size of it and ask you if you would like to download it. It will then selectively grab the file you need with a handy dandy status bar to let you know the estimated time. Once it finishes downloading the game will be setup and ready to run.
