The amusingly named "Bill's Tomato Game" might sound like the usual platformer affair from the 90's, but it's in fact a very good physics puzzle game made in 1992 for Commodore Amiga and Atari ST.

A prototype of the complete and unreleased 1994 conversion of the game for Megadrive showed up on eBay back in 2009. Since them, the game had a 100 cart reproduction run and it was finally released to the public yesterday.

We will never know why Psygnosis decided no to go forth and release the game on SEGA's most successful machine, but at least now we know what we missed out on.

All of this many years before those birds got so angry. Our protagonist name is Terry, his girlfriend is Tracey and the bad guy is Sammy. So the biggest mystery remains: Who the hell is Bill*!?
