"Tomba", 1997, PlayStation.

Of course, screenshots can be overrated. This one bold panel tells you all you need to know about this game: jungle boy fights pigs. Stop, stop -- you had me at "jungle".


Evil pigs. Hidden paths. Enchanting worlds. And man-eating plants. Can you believe what Tomba has to go through to conquer the evil swine? Fortunately he's got a bunch of weapons and a ton of spunk. Tomba's here. And it's the first wild action game with role-playing adventure mixed in, too. (You'll love Tomba even more than a BLT on rye.)
The first role-playing adventure action game, you say? If you add a couple more crayons to that rainbow, it all comes out brown. I'll have to take their word for it that this game is enchanting and wild, but after making two pork jokes, they seem trustworthy enough.
