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

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

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

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

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.
