Unicorn Software

Status: Full Game, Findability: 2/5

Another combination entry for what might possibly be just a hunt for titles that are yet to be preserved. Thanks to Allan Pinkerton, its been highlighted that a number of Unicorn Software educational titles are still at large.

Check out the PDF of the catalogue below, but there are titles such as the following which still need to be found:

  • 10 Little Robots (Found)
  • Funbunch – College Board Preparatory
  • Funbunch – Elementary
  • Funbunch – Intermediate
  • Race Car ‘Rithmetic (Found)
  • Ships Ahoy (Found)
  • Jumble Jet
  • Animal Kingdom (Found)

We feel that the games were all released, and got to completion (hence the screenshots in the catalogue), but they were sold in such limited numbers that they are hard to find currently.

Race Car ‘Rithmetic we know exists, as it is on the retrocollector.org website. Hopefully this will mean that we’ll see the game preserved at some point soon.

10 Little Robots was also confirmed as released in August 2021 by Marco Das, and we have added scans and a image of the game thanks to him.

Ships Ahoy is currently owned by HÃ¥var Bruvold Hojem and will hopefully be preserved and made available soon.

Animal Kingdom has been found by HÃ¥var Bruvold Hojem and should be preserved very soon and made available.

Can you help recover and preserve the other games?

  1. Animal Kingdom also found.

    GB64 has wrongly listed some titles as MIA for the C64, but no info from Unicorn confirms they were ever released for C64, only Apple II (and possibly PC), so do not use GB64 for reference about Unicorn Software titles.

    There are 4 titles still MIA: Funbunch (x3) + Jumble Jet.

    I am quite sure Jumble Jet will eventually surface. On someone’s disks or for sale.

    • Thanks HÃ¥var and have updated the page! We’ve not listed any of the GB64 titles you mention, so only the four on the site so far. Is there a chance that there was a catalogue offering the titles under the C64 format category? (may have been in error, but perhaps how they ended up being listed). Will the titles be released somewhere in particular?

      • Game is in the mail, but as soon as it arrives we’ll check if it still loads & run. If everything is OK a release will appear on CSDB as soon as possible. Fingers crossed. It’s the last one that appeared for C64, before Unicorn went full 16-bit. Animal Kingdom was released in 1988, so will check the included product catalogue if that reveals anything new about titles converted to C64 – or any other titles that they may have released.

  2. i have the 10 little robots version from ozisoft (australia).
    Ships ahoy is owned by Havar, check retrocollecter site for these.
