Thanks so much for doing this, Ana! It was great fun, and I see a couple of titles I need to investigate.

Congrats to Zookeeper as well, and a wave to Looney for having the courage to risk her heart and find a happy marriage. I'm a big fan of those myself!

Thanks Ana. It was a great idea and I appreciate all the work you spent compiling this complicated list.

To the Boomers who are checking the list, I want to personally recommend two little gems I voted for. If you didn't care for Rainbow Web, don't hesitate to try Rainbow Web 2 - it's a much improved version and great fun. I must have played it through to the end at least 50 times. Tropix was a cute game but Tropix 2: Quest for the Golden Banana is exceptionally well done and almost like an Adventure Lite game except you can keep replaying your favorite mini games to earn the money to progress in the adventure portion of the game.
