I knew you'd guess in 3 seconds, but the screenie was too fun not to use. :) Yeah, lovely game.

Nice little game, that.
I'm scraping the bottom of my barrel of obscurity here, hopefully this won't be too easy:

Okay, I made that one up.  I think.

That sounds like it'd be pretty boring :D.
Cactii(?) and deserts don't really play a prominent role in this game, this was just the first screenshot I could find that didn't give away a major hint of the game immediately.

Mhh.. doesn't look very familiar, but someone sure liked DPaint's gradient splatter :)
What's that little rectangle in the lower left corner? Is this screenshot part of a minigame?

@qptain Nemo: I'm stunned how fast you've guessed Ooze. So it was had some commercial success outside of Germany?

I naively thought it was somewhat apparent that I'm just a game nerd, with huge interest in 90s abandonware and adventure games in particular, and a MobyGames addict. ^_^ I haven't even played Ooze yet, but it looked interesting and that particular screenshot amused me a lot when I stumbled upon it, so it was definitely memorable for me. So I can't comment on Ooze's commercial success outside of Germany, but that's the story behind my guess.

Not part of a minigame, abstauber, just that when you move the mouse over important bits of the screen, that would show up. Currently it is pointing to an area that had an object I just picked up.


Oh, and I cannot find this game on MobyGames :D.
Here's another screen to help you out, with a little more of the GUI showing:

I'm guessing it's a game somewhere from 1996 to 2000.

Nope! You're looking too far ahead with your guess.

I think it's time for more revealing screenshots...

I guess I did find one that was more difficult :D.
A more revealing screenshot, but I've taken the liberty of still hiding two things.


In exchange I can tell you it was an edutainment game, and I'm not finding much presence for it online aside from a couple of lets plays and pages on abandonware sites. Nemo already has a vague direction of the date of release from what I corrected of his guess earlier.
I can't make it any easier other than almost literally giving away the name of the game (which you'd be able to totally guess from what I've hidden :D).
