Rick Dangerous

A classic platform game which inspired a slurry of other platform games. The game is largely based on the Indiana Jones movie Raiders of the Lost Ark. Rick can jump and climb, and carry a limited amount of bombs and ammunition for his gun. The gun is mostly used to shoot enemies, although most traps that can kill Rick can also kill his enemies if used correctly. The bombs are generally used for puzzle solving, such as blowing out certain blocks. Rick is also armed with a pogo stick that allows him to paralyze enemies with split-second timing.

Unusually, many of the traps in Rick Dangerous have no visible warning, which means that a player’s initial progress through the game can be a nail-biting ordeal of trial and error, I should warn you that this can be frustrating

One of my favorite games, Tetris is a puzzle video game originally designed and programmed by Alexey Pazhitnov in the Soviet Union. The Tetris game is a popular use of tetrominoes, the four element special case of polyominoes. The game (or one of its many variants) is available for nearly every video game console and computer operating system, as well as on devices such as graphing calculators, mobile phones, portable media players, PDAs, Network music players and even as an Easter egg on non-media products like oscilloscopes.
