Bill's Tomato Game is a puzzle game for the Atari ST and Amiga designed by Bill Pullan and published by Psygnosis in 1992. A planned Sega Mega Drive port was cancelled, but a prototype cart exists and was released online in 2014.[1]

Summary[edit]

The game was developed and published by Psygnosis. The game requires the player to guide Terry the tomato up the vine of Sammy Squirrel and rescue his girlfriend Tracey from the squirrel's villainous clutches. The vine consists of 10 worlds of 10 levels each. All consist of numerous obstacles he has to overcome using the help of various items (e.g. fans or trampolines).

The reason the game is called Bill's Tomato Game is because it was designed and programmed by Bill Pullan.[2] The artwork was by Lee Carus-Westcott and the music was by Mike Clarke.

Reception[edit]

Computer Gaming World liked the game's graphics and puzzles, and called it "one of Psygnosis' best Amiga offerings of late ... the most entertaining and addictive Amiga title I have played in a long time".[3]
