I Spy School Days

I Spy: School Days PC MAC CD find hidden object picture puzzle riddle brain game 



Scholastic Inc. 



I Spy: School Days is a reissue of the original computer game I Spy. Players have a selection of nine games from which to choose: Oops Hoops, Wood Block City, Nature, Chalkboard, Balloon Popper, Codebreaker, Craft Projects, Make Your Own I Spy and The Find Me Riddle. In Oops Hoops, a timed activity, objects must be classified, sorted and placed into categories within hoops. Objects belonging to two categories are placed where hoops intersect. For example, one hoop might contain red objects and another food types -- red, food or red-food objects are placed in the area where they cross.

In Wood Block City, players must find objects by rotating the city to uncover hidden objects. Other city scenes are accessed by clicking on arrows at the bottom of each scene and after completing riddles, players are awarded treasures for use in the Make Your Own I Spy module. Codebreaker, another timed activity, displays a line of objects at the bottom of the screen -- by locating and clicking on an object in the scene, a letter is given and once the target word is decoded, another clue is given. Decoding three clues provides answers to the puzzle.

Balloon Popper requires players to add items to a machine to make it pop the balloon. Three skill levels, each requiring a different number of objects, are available. One track needs only one object which is easily visible on the screen while others require players to gather more hidden items from other pages in the I Spy game. After all objects are acquired, a marble is put in motion and the machine pops the balloon.

As in Word Block City, Chalkboard, Nature and Craft Projects reward players with treasures to be used in the Make Your Own I Spy Game module. The first requires solving riddles and searching for items used throughout the school year, the second takes the item search to nature-related layouts such as the beach, plants and insects while the last requires searching within craft projects.

In Make Your Own I Spy, players take treasures earned in the other activities and design their own I Spy games to share with friends. The more games completed and treasures earned, the greater the number of I Spy games that can be made. The final activity requires players to look for an item that appears twelve times throughout the entire game. By finding the item, a small yellow plastic beetle with red curly antennae and clicking on it, the item appears in an empty box.

For Windows (32-bit Systems) / Mac (Power Macintosh: OS 9 or Below) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
