What was that one childhood video game that you loved to bits, yet no-one else seems to have ever heard of?

It was called Pizza. Late 80s/early 90s jump'n'run game. Basically, you're a squirrel who time-traveled back to the Roman Empire. Your goal is to collect all the ingredients it takes to make a pizza. Sadly, I only had the demo-version, which only included the first level. But I loved the game anyway. I think when you had the full game, you received a new ingredient after completing each level. The squirrel can only travel home (to the present-time) again once it has all the necessary ingredients and is able to make a pizza. It was a really fun game.

I'll get this going - Starball. Pinball game with three tiers and a few minigames. My bro and I used to compete for highscore, the grind was looong. We had acquired a few of those mid to late 90s CDs from ToysrUs (I believe) which contained 15 games on one disc. Other obscure titles include Quarantine & Roadwarrior, Hell, Cyberbykes.

The Neverhood. A claymation masterpiece with a lot of personality and great humour.

They made a sequel called Skullmonkeys which was more popular likely due to being released on PlayStation instead of PC and being a faster paced platformer instead of a puzzle adventure.

We only had a computer, so old comp games:

Creature (1, 2, 3) was amazing. I actually learned a fair bit about physiology from 3!

Ecoquest- Rainforest and Ocean. My child biologist self LOVED those games. I want to introduce them to my daughter. I still adore Sierra games and am following the Williams and Collosal Cave closely.

The old Maxis games- Sim Ant was mentioned, but Sim Life was fun, if way above my grade level.

Castle of the Wind. Loderunner.

Hover!- one of those free games with Win95. I had a blast with it!

I played ADOM for a long time, but recently learned it's a whole thing on Steam, so I guess people know about it.

There was this DOS game that we just called the "Gorilla Game". Two gorillas, one on each side of the screen, separated by a cityscape. It was a two-player game and each player controlled one of the gorillas. You took turns throwing an exploding banana at the other gorilla. The winner was the first one to blow up the other gorilla.

That game was a pure delight. Anyone else remember it?

I wish I knew the name. It was a little handheld single LCD screen game. You had 2 buttons I think, forward and backward. You maneuvered your character (a little boy, I think) through an obstacle course. At one point you had to go over alligator interested waters, you also went over poles that would disappear, etc. There may have been bees at one point? The adventure playground was printed in colour on the unit and things like the logs you had to jump on which moved were LCD. The course you went around was an S configuration. Where you'd go right to left on the top, then down a bit, then right through more obstacles, then down and left again? I think it might be only 2 layers to it though.

Been trying to find it for ages, but I last played it about 35 years ago when I was just a little tyke. Would love to buy another copy of it.

Edit: this was a hand held game like the old Game & Watch games (but just one screen). The unit was rectangular I think and was held landscape. I'm like 98% sure it wasn't Nintendo or Tiger though (the unit wasn't in that distinctive Tiger shape). It was made in the early 80s.

When I was young there was a game on the Commodore 64 called revenge. You were a little helicopter that flew around shooting enemy planes. The topmost bar of the screen was a safe zone as none of the baddies would go there. Each time you cleared a level it would add bad guys to shoot. It would build up until there were so many of them you could not fit on the screen.

I would play that game until the screen overheated and stopped working for the day.

I loved the Sly Cooper series...would be happy for another one but the last one kinda hurt the franchise if I recall correctly.

Earthworm Jim and Jazz Jack Rabbit were my first two games on a floppy disc. I played them all day long during the holidays.

I feel like this doesn’t necessarily belong but none of my friends played Lego Island.

I played a ton of Lego Island. And also Lego Island 2.

I've been nostalgia tripping for a while over the collection of cd rom games I had in the late 90s/early 00s. Some of my favorites include: The Amazon Trail: just like the Oregon trail but you're in the Amazon river and there's a time warping fog that transports you to different points in time. Reader Rabbit preschool, kindergarten, and 1st grade: all of these were adorable. Monsters Inc Bowling for Screams: it came in a cereal box and the cutscenes never played properly on my PC but it was addicting as hell. And last but not least, a 3 disc pack from Fisher Price that included a Christmas activity center, a pet shop, and a camping trip.

And all of these games have footage of them being played on YouTube! Out of everyone I know, I'm the only one who had these games.

For me it was Sid Meier’s Colonization. Still have urges to play that one. Liked it better than Civilization for some reason.

Lego Island video game for the PC. It was a small little island and you would do tasks around the island. I loved it so much.

Montazuma’s Revenge on the Commodore 64. The game got harder by putting levels in the dark. My friend and I could do the entire game with an almost completely (minus the ladders and fire) black screen.
