Quirky Amiga PD and shareware programs

Although the Amiga was a thoroughly professional computer with excellent software, I always enjoyed the odd quirky program that appeared occasionally, usually via PD or shareware... one such example is "About Clock" it tells you the time in it's own very informal way... see attached...

Do you have any favourite quirky little programs that you could share?

The Italian translation of "About Clock" is not good, see screnshot

Such as quirky program i've collected someone, see video
Unique that I could not show in the video is "Nightmare", dangerous application for health, it is a dormant application that after 5 minutes makes a bloody skull appear accompanied by a chilling scream .

There's this on Aminet: LEMonWB100

...it says "(AGA won't work)" but I've just tested on my "Classic WB Lite 3.1" .HDF (A1200 - 2MB Chip & 8MB Fast RAM) and all was good.

There is also: CyberLemmings.

I believe that you need a CybergraphX card and library for this; but I'm no expert on the subject...

All the best screen hacks broke with OS2.x :-)

I always used to have the four sprite MTV logo in the corner of my screen for some reason. :-D

A small WB animation - WB-AnimAL from Aminet - fun to mess around with and I'm sure it could look a lot better once properly configured.
