Mathematics (for 3rd and 4th grades)
You play the role of an ice cream man who has to buy products from the factory with the aim of selling them later in the day. You are told what the weather for that day is like, which should be a hint at the sort of products you should acquire for your customers. In practice, though, some customers will ask you for ice cream on a cold day or chocolate on a hot day. You will have to answer questions performing addition, substraction and multiplication as you sell your products. At the end of each day, you are given the choice to go to sleep or to the amusement park where you can spend your earnings. The next day repeats the whole process. Unsold items stay on your ice cream tricycle and cannot be returned to the factory for a refund.
Civics (for 5th and 6th grades)
You live the life of a schoolboy for a whole day, from the moment you get up from bed, take a shower, have breakfast, wash your teeth, walk to school, go to class, go out during school break, buy some snacks, return to class, take the bus back home and finish your day, while behaving in a civilized way... and getting lots of product placement from D'Onofrio!
Geography (for 7th, 8th and 9th grades)
You play a night watchman who falls asleep on the job and some creatures get inside the warehouse to eat all the products ready to ship the next morning. Your job is to get the missing ingredients in order to reproduce the batch before morning comes. Fortunately, you have a delivery van which turns into a rocket plane, allowing you to reach the different regions of the country where you will be able to find the ingredients. You will also need to equip yourself according to the weather conditions in each place before traveling or get a time penalty. This one is more fun to play than the previous two. If you manage to finish in time, the manager congratulates you the next morning for having taken such good care of the products. If only he knew the truth ;-)
Physics (for 10th and 11th grades)
This is the one I programmed. Here, you play a detective who has to find eight secret formulas which were stolen from D'Onofrio's laboratories and are suspected to be hidden inside the headquarters of a spy organization. Fortunately, as the thief was escaping with the formulas, someone managed to get hold of them. During the fight, the pages were ripped but only the top part remained. You will need to match it with the corresponding formula as you find each one. To gain access to the building and each room inside afterwards, you will need to apply physics to get the doors open. Don't worry, you will be prompted to solve multiple choice questions and if you know the proper physics formula, you will be able to figure out the right answer (if you think the questions and the answers are always the same, forget it - after all, it was ME who programmed that game and I certainly won't let you get away with it so easily, Sir!). Once inside each room or area, you will have to search the furniture present to locate the missing formulae. Although they can just be hidden inside a couch, a bed, a lamp or some other similar place, sometimes you will find a hidden safe... and to look inside it, you will need to find the matching key to open it first! I may be somewhat biased but this one is also fun to play, although I didn't include joystick control at the time (thinking maybe the school machines where it would be run wouldn't have any connected to them).
