Hi all, i've been searching for information for a while on a game i used to play on an A7000 at school. Initial suggestions and small number of screenshots i was able to find suggested that it was the crystal rainforest however now i am not so sure.

I found a copy for the Archimedes on ebay at http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=360470734303#ht_500wt_1156 and im pretty certain that im thinking of something else.

The educational game im thinking of was maths based like TCR, and it was definitely based in a rainforest, however unlike this listing, the game came on a CD which was also compatible with the Mac OS and Windows, i remember thinking "i've never seen something that could work on all three" when i looked at it.

However, as other people have said, TCR does not feature robots as foes where as they are a pretty big part of what im thinking of. The graphics were also considerably more cartoonier than what the ebay listing suggests. The first task i can remember was to program a drinks vending machine to drop a cup, bring it under the nozzle and dispence the right amount of liquid within, to drink while the game briefed you as to why you were going into the forest.

Its a very limited description however trying to figure it out has been driving me nuts (i only ever played it when the A5000 with spheres of chaos was already being used)

Thanks for reading smile

It might be worth checking the STH forum too.

We have a new CD copy of The Crystal Rainforest: II 'Mission Control' in stock. It is not 'triple format' only Acorn.
Sherston did do a few Triple format CDs though Anglia & YITM did more.
Producing Triple Format was easy as each OS boots/autoruns differently.
