    there were some games like jezzball and maxwell maniac among others. i have found those two but can't find the one i really want.

    will try to describe it as best as i can remember
    there is a four sided box with some mazes inside. then there is a a little thing running to pick up some things in the passageways and another thing chasing it. sometimes to escape it would unlock a square looking gate that turns and hide inside that box until the thing passes. points would be gained and lives would be lost and one would move onto another level if successful. i had mastered up to level 14

    hope this help - really would love to play this game again

    thank you
  7. never heard of those games coming with windows 95. maybe they were included with the windows 96 plus addon but not sure
  8. It was the Microsoft Best of Entertainment Pack. I still have a copy of the floppy.

    and how would i get the games that would be windows 96 plus addon? can you help?
  10. no it is not this i am getting a little weary

    i will try t describe it again

    there is a square box with more of black background. it consist of different type mazes at each level. at all times a little thing is running around and being chased by a different type to be destroyed. it is made in such a way that you can hide and allow the chaser to pass. sometimes you have to go all the way around a box to collect the item and the thing would be chasing you so you have to hide and allow it to pass then come out and collect the thing to get prize. success would give you more lives. i remember it was an orange-colored thing. there were up to 17 levels or more

    i don't think i did well from memory but i am trying

    sorry i meant windows 95 plus addon. and how to get it?
    download it from bit torrent or something like that perhaps? heck the software is so old you may be able to google it and find a place to download it from


    but i think Grumpy9117 may have had the correct answer for this. check his post

    sorry i did not respond earlier

    but i check those and it is not amongt them

    thanks pal
  13. also i like to mention i had an old copy of windows 95 so i installed it in vmware just to look.

    anyway i checked the games and the games that were already mentioned are the only ones that are included with windows 95
    FreeCell
    Hearts
    Mineweeper
    Solitaire

    and it is the same with windows 98 with maybe the addition of a pinball game but that about it for all the games that were included with windows 9x
  14. that is some effort

    but it would appear that these games were extras like the entertainment pack

    you could find the game amongst jezzball and maxwell maniac
  15. Well Jezball came with the Microsoft Entertainment Pack and so did Maxwell Maniac. So clearly you either remember wrong or the game you're looking for is also part of the Microsoft Entertainment Pack.
  16. maybe it is the memory

    will keep trying
  17. I think it was called Herman or something. If I'm thinking of the same game you are lol

    I hope this helps, sorry it's so late in replying. I'm trying to find the game too.
