Yet another educational set of titles which are at large it seems, and highlighted thanks to Sean O’Neill.

Ironically, it is within a Zzap educational article back in 1992 alongside the Fun School series where our next set of titles get a mention.  Ironic, because some of the Fun School titles have been “fun” to try and find over the years.

Prisma Software (or was that Prism?) had apparently released two titles called Prof Plays a New Game and Prof Makes Sentences.  There were meant to be another 2 titles in the series, but the details on these are sadly lacking.

The first title in the series was meant to have come with an audio cassette that you played whilst going through the educational parts.  The second part was apparently released later in July of 1991 (Zzap 80 was January 1992),  so it suggests that both titles were sold – maybe just in limited numbers?

For more details about the titles, check out the Zzap write up scan.  It is very likely that the games are out there, but now it is the task of trying to preserve them fully.  Can you help us?

    I coded “Prof makes sentences” for the C64 in 1990. The game was published by Prisma software (based in Chester) – it was a port from the original BBCB version. I don’t recall there being an audio cassette but it was a long time ago l.

    Unfortunately I don’t have the original software and haven’t seen the rom anywhere on the internet. C

      Hi Tony, thanks for confirming your involvement in the game and for getting in touch. If by chance you do ever find anything on disk or similar, then please let us know as we could help digitally preserve it for you. Is there possibly anyone you might know who could have kept a copy?

      Also, what other C64 games did you work on just out of interest?

  2. Hi there, I not it mentions me on here as the coder for this title, however I didn’t do this one.
    I did the Kids Academy Range, Pepe’s Garden, Paint Pot, Paint Pot 2, Shopping Basket and a few others which I would have to look at as I can’t remember the titles now 🙂
