I vote for Tinkle Pit:

jmmijo 14 July 2002 05:50

Now are you gonna limit this to only Amiga titles or any game created for any platform?!?

Since you submitted a Namco title I'm presuming it's from an arcade box or something :confused

jmmijo 14 July 2002 05:59

Ok, I kinda figured as much, just wanted to be sure and yes Tinkle Pit does some a bit on the humorous side :)

As for coming with funny names, I'll look at my collection and see what I can come up with ;)

Anything! I just want to laugh :D

Yes, Tinkle Pit is a Namco arcade game.

I'll use this reply as an excuse to also nominate Hany on the Road:

Wahaha, wtf is that!

How about making a mention for Mr. Blobby

Borobodur
 
I'm not even sure I've spelt it correctly but surely the "name that doesn't mean a damn thing award" must go to this Thalamus game!

It was so badly written that even a magazine spelt it wrong in the review.

Shatterhand 14 July 2002 18:46

Borobodur, yes....

what about Perihelion ???

Syko 14 July 2002 22:44

stupid name for a gfx card as well.... Don't remember the game, what was it about?

jmmijo 14 July 2002 22:52

Yeah, isn't that Matrox's new video card name ?!?

Actually I think it's Parehelia or something like that ;)

oldpx 14 July 2002 23:34

The game had an EXCELLENT intro by the way

I'm not 100% sure if I have the name correct, but a C64 game called Tread Bear!
Worst gfx & game I've had the displeasure to see on a C64!
Did have one benefit though. One day my Year 7 pro-girls teacher,(Okay teacher but we hated how she always sided with the girls in our class), demanded the c64 be used more "equally". It was expected by the hypocrites that threw me & my mates off the C64 that they'd play some of my games!

Despite protests not to reward them, I fixed them by loading up this piece of C64 drivel! Never had a problem using the C64 after that!! :D

No! Perihelion is an RPG game by Psygnosis for Amiga.

Tim Janssen 15 July 2002 16:17

Some contenders...
 
Omar Shariff's Bridge;
Ivan 'Iron Man' Super Off-road racer;
Hoi (which just means 'hello'or yippeee' in English);

Akira 15 July 2002 18:02

How about the Amiga game Baraboroudour, or something like that? It's the dumbest name I heard! :D

Akira 15 July 2002 18:03

Isn't that OI! ?

Perihelion
 
The game name Perihelion comes from the English word which describes when a planet or a comet orbits the Sun and is at its closest point to the Sun.

Not such a stupid name after all......

Chubby Gristle...... now thats a stupid name!

ethylene 16 July 2002 04:20

Chubby Gristle? Nice :)

Shatterhand 16 July 2002 05:04

@Akira

Codetapper already mentioned this one.

@Galahad

I didn't know this meaning for the word "Perihelion" . Thanx for clearing this up ! :)



Chubby Grislte doesn't have just a stupid name.. it's a stupid game on itself :) . At least the music was nice.
