[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZ3BnJ0A2Iw Hitler's revenge]] was an {{NES}} game scheduled to be released in 1986. For better or for worse, this game never saw the release and allegedly was lost for future generations. Only 5-minutes-long gameplay video was recovered and uploaded on Website/YouTube in 2008.

The game takes place in bright colorful world, where unnamed cook is trying to get a leper colony to get treatment before it's too late. To do so, he has to avoid multiple enemies and devious traps.

2008. However, after several years, the original footage was taken down, [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes though a few copies still exist]] (the link in this article is one of said copies).

On November 11, 2014, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=aVwoU8Sqh9k footage of what seems to be another version of the game]] was uploaded, along with a link to [[http://mazeguy.net/challenge.html an article detailing how the game was made]]. The video is almost identical to the first, but with several differences. The most noticeable difference is the title of the game - it is now ''Hoagie's Revenge''. The copyright has also been changed from "Nintendo" to "Pretendo". It seems that the older video, ironically, shows the newer version of the game, as it has several subtle graphical features missing from the version in the newer video.

The game takes place in a bright colorful world, where an unnamed cook (referred to as "Cook" in this article) is trying to get to a leper colony colony, presumably to get treatment before it's too late. To do so, he has to avoid multiple enemies and devious traps.
