Nothing new to hate, bash old game
As a kid I spent a lot of time in the library run by my mother, and it was there that I spent literally days with the Apple ][+ and Apple //e. Along with Sneakers, I got to play In Search of the Most Amazing Thing. This educational adventure game was one of my earliest disappointing game experiences.

I don't recall the exact details, but you could buy these wild gizmos in the game's store (some described here). It took me ages to save up for some astounding hoozawhatzit, and I still remember the excitement I felt when I finally bought it. I couldn't wait to see what it would look like in all its monochrome green glory.

Except, it didn't do anything. As far as I could tell, it got put on your ship and just sat there. I felt so ripped off, I put the game aside and never touched it again.

Having read the game ending spoiler at Wikipedia, I'm glad I gave up when I did. Boy, what a sucky ending.
