So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

The ClueFinders' first adventure, and it's a good one at that. Mathra is SO not a play on words of Mothra.

Unused Music

File Comments
A music track that was seemingly intended to be used as background music for some part of the game, though it's unclear where this would play.


There are three revisions to the game: the original 1998 release, a 1999 release, and a 2001 release. The 1999 release included different demos, updated the copyright information, and added A.D.A.P.T learning technology which increases difficulty as the player progresses. The 2001 release features the new logo on the autorun, only gives ClueFinders demos, with two playable: 3rd Grade Adventures and 5th Grade Adventures, and adds "2001 TLC Properties LLC" to the copyright information. In the game, however, the copyright information at the title screen still says "1999 The Learning Company".

2001 Release: Leftover 1999 Autorun/Install Graphics

Located in the install\data\ folder of the disc are leftover autorun graphics from the 1999 release, included with install graphics of the same style from the same revision.
