Hey all you Legacy PC Gamers,

I'm trying to find the name of one exact puzzle game for a dear friend, to whom the information would mean a lot. She wants to show it her child as we used to play it in our childhood too. Today, the game is not one of the well-recognized PC game classics. I remember some bits and pieces of the game but googling hasn't helped me to track it yet ... therefore I am troubling You for it. The game is simple, slightly medival (I guess?) by theme and with neat EGA/CGA graphics/some colors, runnable with (086)/286+ machines.

And all I remember about the game and its "plot" is this ...
- The idea is to find a rightful owner for each item found from the game world (a kingdom) -> the items help their owners to carry out their daily duties.
- Rightful owners vary e.g. from Mary (who "Had a little lamb") and Humpty Dumpty to the King -> and while solving an owner the PC beeper nicely takes you away :) by playing these catchy nursery rhymes (links below take you to slightly similar Youtube versions of the very songs):

"Mary had a little lamb": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLCqa8W5PlY
"Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSHYTXlZmLQ
"Old King Cole": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSRBZFhs0jw

I'm not sure if my hints helped or confused you :D but thanks anyways!
