Question Discovery: Math

I used to play Discovery: Math as much as I could - which wasn't too often because the floppy was screwy.

In it, you played a crewmember on the starship Discovery, which was collecting alien animal life specimens. But Discovery ran out of fuel, all the animals escaped from their cages, and the other crewmembers disappeared (apparently). Your task is to run about the ship, avoiding animals, climbing ladders, collecting fuel cells, and answering simple math problems to open doors.

Then we gave away our Amiga a few years ago, despite my cries of protest .

This is a little-known title, with only one or two webpages that acknowledge that it ever existed. If anyone could help me find a copy for old times sake, I would be very grateful.

http://hol.abime.net/4730 is this it? (published by MicroIllusions)
  • Discovery - Math (1986)(Microillusions).zip
  • Discovery Trivia & Spelling & Math & Science (1991)(MicroIllusions)[h ACS].zip
in The Zone!

I suppose the latter is some sort of compilation. Hope those are what you're looking for and work.

Edit: By the way, I notice the TOSEC date is 2 years before the HOL date. Maybe somebody should check that.

Yep, that's it, all right.

Thanks a lot for your help...

Hello Audio Snow,

Welcome to EAB

Take a look at the Rules & Help at the top of EAB, specifically How do I get access to the zone?

I don't know how long I've been looking for the discovery spelling.
Could anyone upload the file again, please?

Finished the game - I forgot how much of an anticlimax the end was - haha. I like how the computer pronounces fuel crystals, like "fyoo-el cri-stel". I was always the blue dude with the pointy head.

Wow. Top for cheers mate. Talk about quick response. You play these games when your a kid and then long to have another go 15 years later, but they never seem as good the second time around???

I know, I know... this has been re-asked for already, but... could anyone please put those files back in the zone? I'm a "n00b" here and I've been looking for Discovery and the expansions for a long long time and I missed it by just a few days...
