Archaic computer games

In my recent senior year of college I found a download of Oregon Trail and, along with my roommates, wasted away too much time playing this awesome computer game of our youth. I give this age reference so it may be of help in determining the answer to my question. I keep remembering a game, seems to be much like Oregon Trail in the sense that it was primitive as far as computer games are concerned and most likely from the early to mid-nineties. In the game play, all I can remember was removing patches of grass (brush, sticks, etc....all types of "cover") to reveal certain animals (maybe people and objects too?). Sadly, I can't remember the point of the game or much more, other than you had to repeatedly click and drag to uncover certain things bit by bit.

If you think I dreamt that game up, here's a better question. Anyone remember SoftDisk/On Disk Monthly games? I'm pretty sure that's what it was called. It was a subscription-type thing where you got a new floppy disk each month filled with some organizing programs, informational programs (adult-type stuff at the age I was when I remember them) and some games. Catacomb Abyss ring a bell to anyone?
