Dear everybody, a belated Merry Christmas, and here's to a new and improved upcoming year. I hope that you're all safe from the ravages of Covid. I will be the first to admit that I have been AWOL for large stretches of 2021. I hope to make amends in 2022. For the time being, I'm grateful for the efforts of my co-editors. Thank you, one and all - and thank you to all of you users out there who help keep the site busy.
Case in point: Our registered game count has just crossed the 9,000 mark (9002)! Impressive indeed!
Cheers!

Random Game

Case of the Mixed-Up Shymer, The

Plot

Nursery school children on the island of Nurvee are in uproar because somebody mixed up all the nursery rhymes. You have to set them straight.

Notes

Originally an Amstrad adventure, self-published by the author (during her tenure as Adventure Probe editor) before later being released by her successor Mandy Rodrigues' Atlas Adventure Software.

The ST version was done with STAC, whereas the rest were coded in GAC. The C64 version was ported by Mandy Rodrigues.

The graphics for the ST version were produced by Dicon Peeke.

Steve Clay referenced an Amiga version of Shymer in his Amiga column Adventure Probe a couple of times. This seems to have been released by the Central Licenceware Register (CLR) through PD libraries. It's described as a graphical adventure but no authoring system is listed. Advertising states the game was on CLG 27 and LPD30.
