The first version of *Math Blaster Mystery* was released in 1989. It features four pre-algebra games with a "mystery" theme.

Although it does not include the characters of Rave and Dr. Dabble, this is still identifiable as an early version of *Math Blaster Mystery: The Great Brain Robbery* and *Math Blaster Mystery Pre-Algebra* due to the similarity of its activities.

## Games[]

### Follow the Steps[]

A tutorial for solving word problems. This activity is analogous to the "Basement Tutorial" in *The Great Brain Robbery* and the "Graveyard Tutorial" in *Pre-Algebra*.

### Decipher the Code[]

A *Mastermind*-type game in which you construct an equation. This seems to be an early version of the "Equation Wall" in *The Great Brain Robbery* and, more distantly, the "Radio-Mystery Hour" in *Pre-Algebra*.

### Weigh the Evidence[]

This is the "Towers of Hanoi" game called "Kitchen Recipe" *The Great Brain Robbery* and "Droid Feeder" in *Pre-Algebra*.

### Search for Clues[]

You search for clues to determine the "mystery number." This is an early version of the "Number Guesser" seen in both subsequent versions of *Math Blaster Mystery*.
