The Adventures of Hyperman is an educational point-and-click adventure game that teaches science through puzzles. A cartoon series inspired by the game later aired on CBS.
The plot of the game is very simple, the two bad guys, Entrobe and Kid Chaos, are loose and try to bring chaos to the earth by adulterating and messing up with the environment properties of the planet, so it's up to Hyperman and his side-kick Emma to stop them by solving different puzzles in which they are gonna need to know some things about different concepts of science.
The puzzle types are very varied, from simple mini-games to more thinking oriented puzzles. As in every point-and-click adventure game you have your inventory, essential to solve the puzzles, though there aren't different cursors for different actions. [source:mobygames]
