Fantastic Fossils was an educational game title released as shareware in 1991.
It had an all-ages theme. The educational aspect offered much information and
depth, and the games after each section were used to reinforce what you had
learned. It had fossil and bone puzzles, matching games, and classification
games. It also had a very detailed “fossil dig” game where you could excavate
and preserve your findings like real archaeologists. The Fossil Gallery in
Fantastic Fossils was very large and had 200 fully cataloged fossil images in
8 bit color with synthesized audio and sound effects.
