Oh man! I love this game! This was always one of my favorites to play when I was younger and I can't wait to play it again! I loved solving all of the puzzles and putting together difference pieces of clues in order to finish the game. If I remember right, the graphics were really pretty good too. I do think it was a little slow, but that probably had a lot to do with the quality of my computer back when it first came out.
This game is definitely, 100% a classic.
Let's see, what do I remember about this game? There was a part where you met Humpty Dumpty but I don't remember what you had to do for him. There was also the little boy who put his thumb in the pie and said, "my what a good boy am I!" or something like that. There was the little old lady who lived in a shoe and had so many children she didn't know what to do. There was also the man who could eat no fat and his wife who could eat no lean and so between them both they licked the platter clean. There was also the "hey diddle diddle
the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon" rhyme. I really don't know what you had to do for all of these people but they each had a song or a dance if I remember right.
Mother Goose was the star of the show and she would show up when you finished the game I think. I don't remember who the character you played was. It seems like you could choose who it was, like a boy or a girl or something and whether they had brown or blonde hair or whatever. And you would walk around and visit different scenes, kind of like in King's Quest, and the nursery rhyme character would sing his or her song or tell you about his nursery rhyme and what he was missing (like Old King Cole and his four and twenty blackbirds) and then you would look around for the item he or she was missing and bring it to him or her. You would keep doing that until you fixed all of the mixed up nursery rhymes and saved the day! It was really a lot of fun and was stimulating for the mind. I loved fixing the mixed up rhymes and figuring out the answers to what nursery rhyme people were missing. Did I mention that the graphics were pretty cool? They were, and so were the songs, as well as the whole idea of fixing mixed up nursery rhymes.
