Around-the-World-in-80-Days.png Around the World in 80 Days is a 1994 kids ad­ven­ture game by EA Kids and Novo­trade. It's the sec­ond title in Novo­trade's Cre­ative Read­er se­ries after Peter Pan. Play­ers fol­low Phineas Fogg the evil Baron Hogs­breath in a race around the world. When Fogg is in a bind, Phineas gets the help of his mon­key side­kick Sid­ney and the Paint­box Pals, a team of paint­ing and draw­ing tools that can change things in the world. The game is for­giv­ing and has no dead ends, and the play­er only needs to in­ter­act with the game when using the Paint­box Pals, press­ing but­tons, or choos­ing the Fogg's next des­ti­na­tion. This is the first part of the game. Phineas Fogg leaves Eng­land and trav­els to Spain and France. There's many more so­lu­tions to "puz­zles" than this video se­ries shows, and some of the di­a­logue is cho­sen at ran­dom. This video was record­ed in DOS­Box. |Source: Ob­scu­ri­to­ry]
