Mixed-Up Mother Goose is a classic "Sierra-style" adventure game for kids, based on the various classic nursery rhymes (Humpty Dumpty, etc.). All the rhymes from all over the land have gotten mixed up, and it is up to the child to find the missing pieces and give them back to who needs them.

There are currently no topics for this game.


A little-known CD re-release features improved graphics and audio (including speech) and runs under Windows 3.x.

Editor's note: There is a DOS CDROM release and a Windows release. The DOS release is, surprisingly, easier to find than the Windows 3.1 release.
