    Default Random Princess Tomato weirdness.

    So if anybody's read the old games board, they may have seen a post mentioning the existence of an older Japan-only Princess Tomato game for the PC:

    http://www2.plala.or.jp/yasinoue/oldgame/saramenu.html

    Those too lazy to read it: it's essentially a walkthrough of the original game from 1984, a text adventure that has even WEIRDER graphics than the NES version and functions on a text parser. It's worth a look just to see what the original incarnation looked like.

    And if that weren't enough:

    ...there's a newer cell phone version. Which makes you wonder exactly HOW popular this game was, or whether Hudson is just really that obsessed over the concept of a cucumber rescuing a tomato from a pumpkin.

    ...I SWEAR they must've been on drugs for this.

    Very weird indeed... check out some of those commands- Stab Banana Saber, Get Rind...?

    I don't recall the game ever being super popular, but I'd imagine they'd make a cell phone game out of anything these days (low development costs, high user base, etc. etc).

    To bump an old post:

    I found this page: http://www.chipple.net/mt/2005/04/01_001936.php

    Looks like they made not just on cell phone versions, but two. o.O
