Attack of the Killer Tomatoes (NES)

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes is a 2D platform game which was developed for the NES by Imagineering and released in 1991. It was later ported to the Game Boy in 1992. In addition to the NES and Gameboy version, another "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" game was released for the Amstrad CPC, MSX, and ZX Spectrum.

These games are based on the cartoon entitled "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes: The Animated Series", which itself was based on the movie franchise "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes."

The game centers itself around Chad Finletter, who is a young boy on a quest to stop an evil scientist from unleashing his dangerous 'Doomsday Tomato'. To do so, Chad must defeat legions of mutant tomatoes.

Much like other platform games of this time, the gameplay simply involves jumping on top of the enemies' heads to defeat them.
