Take A Trip Down Memory Lane With These 7 Nostalgic Video Games

Malak Nazir

A blast from the past!

Ever find yourself longing for the simpler times when the only thing you had to worry about was saving Tarzan’s jungle or protecting the Earth from intergalactic chickens? Well, buckle up, retro gamers, because we’re about to take a warp-speed trip down memory lane that’ll have you dusting off your old consoles faster than you can say “Game Over!”

7. Tarazan

First up, let’s swing through the vines with Disney’s Tarzan. Released in 1999, this action-packed platformer had us dodging leopard attacks and collecting bananas long before smartphones took over our gaming lives. Whether you played on PlayStation, PC, or Nintendo 64, Tarzan was the king of the jungle and our hearts.

6. Chicken Invaders

Next, we enter the cluck-tastic world of Chicken Invaders, where defending Earth from poultry invaders became our unexpected calling. With its debut for Windows and later for practically every platform under the sun, Chicken Invaders made us all space heroes in our own living rooms, one fried chicken at a time.

5. Snail Mail

Remember when snail mail wasn’t just about letters? Enter Turbo the snail, equipped with a jetpack, racing through galaxies to deliver mail in the fastest time possible. Snail Mail wasn’t just a game; it was a high-speed test of dexterity and a proof that snails could be cool too.

4. 3D Frog Frenzy

3D Frog Frenzy had us guiding our amphibious friend through roads and rivers, reminiscent of Frogger but with that unmistakable 3D twist. Released in 1999, it was all about dodging cars and navigating logs. Who knew crossing the road could be so thrilling?

 3. Feeding Frenzy

Dive deep with Feeding Frenzy, where the big fish rule and the small fish swim for their lives. Released in 2004, this game had us chomping our way up the food chain, proving once and for all that the ocean is indeed survival of the fittest (or the hungriest).

2. Icy Tower

Who could forget the endless climb of Icy Tower? Released in 2001, Harold the Homeboy’s quest to ascend the icy tower captured our hearts and our keyboards, turning a simple jumping mechanic into hours of “just one more try.”

1. Zuma

Last but not least, Zuma rolled into our lives in 2003, turning a simple match-three puzzle game into an obsession. With its Aztec-inspired aesthetics and addictive gameplay, Zuma proved that sometimes, the simplest games are the most enduring.

Did you play any?

Whether you were a jungle explorer, a space defender, or an underwater predator, these games remind us of the joy of simple pleasures and the timeless appeal of good fun. Now, who’s up for a game?
