This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

Swamp Gas is an educational and fun way for your family or classroom to learn all about the geography of The United States of America.

Your mission is to help Swamp Gas, the lovable alien, explore the geography of the USA. Visit all the states, capitals, and points of interest. Discover interesting facts during "close encounters".

After each geography mission, you can enter the Alien Arcade and play one of three different non-violent arcade games.

Swamp Gas is appropriate for ages 6 and up. You determine the length of play by choosing missions of 5 to 50 locations. Every mission is unique. Three levels of difficulty will challenge every age. While the help button provides hints to geography novices. Up to four individuals can play at once, making this the ideal family entertainment. Lively color, clever sounds and humor add to the fun.

Works in B/W or 16/256 colors only. (Thousands or better will result in an unexpected quit. There's apparently a newer version that fixes this, but I don't have it.) Only tested in Mac OS 7.5.5 and Basilisk II, but it works fine in both. I seem to remember it working just fine through OS 9 and in Classic mode, but I can't guarantee it.
