Yeah I have a very clear memory of this 'feature' of the game I had where the shop keeper said something along the lines of 'I let you rob me in the last version' or 'You can't rob me in the shareware version!'. I am fairly confident it was a shareware title because my parents never purchased full version games for me as a kid :S

I'm trying to remember a game, think it was a crappy shareware/freeware game that came on a floppy with other crappy games.

It was a top down maze game, i think it was set in a power plant, you had to get to the middle of the maze to stop a meltdown, then back out again. When you pressed the cursor keys your dude would keep going in that direction and you couldn't stop him. If you touched the walls you lost health.

Can anyone remember an educational game that featured some spelling games, and other learning mini-games? Would've been Win95 era.

The main thing that stands out from the game was that one of the mini games was an electrical circuit game. Tiled blocks form the circuit and you had to swap out the problem block to make it work. e.g. there would be a wooden or glass block you had to replace.
