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

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

Yes, Tinkle Pit is a Namco arcade game.

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

Thumbs down 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.

Big grin

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!!

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!

@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.
