Trying to remember a couple 1990s games

Okay, kind of a vague memory, but maybe someone can make something of it. These would've both been sometime in the mid-90s:

The first game was a shooter with a top-down view. The weapons were kind of weird (one was a rubber band shooter, I think) and it had a cartoony look. One of the enemies was a caveman who said "Unga Bunga!" I want to say it was an Interplay or MacPlay title, since I remember a demo of it being on a Mario's Game Gallery disc (probably because it was one of the few demos that would even run on my then-already-ancient Mac LC520). However, I don't see any matches on Allgame under either developer.

The other was a CD-ROM game where you had to go through a factory of some sort and collect pieces to make a race car/buggy kind of thing (although I think you could make other vehicles too). You'd find pieces like a transmission, chassis, wheels, even paint and decorations, and you had to race it against a stereotypical mad scientist who sounded kind of like Dr. Doofenshmirtz.

The name of the other one just came to me. It was Super Solvers Gizmos & Gadgets!

Here's another one I'm trying to remember. I think it was a game where you controlled a butterfly and had to gather gems or something. It was possible to run into fly paper and get stuck, and the fly paper looked like little brown coils. It shared a "bonk" sound effect with Ingemar's Skiing Game. Familiar to anyone?

Yup! It's interesting to see people from other sites: someone from The Comics Curmudgeon recently showed up (one of the blogs I read regularly), now someone from Labelscar. Neat!
