''Avoid the Noid'' is a PlatformGame for the {{Commodore 64}} and {{IBM PC}}, created to advertise Domino's Pizza. You start at the bottom of a 30-story building, and have to deliver a pizza at the top within half an hour. The building is infested with noids, who will use jump kicks, exploding telephones, water balloons and ''bazookas'' to destroy your pizza.

----
!!Contains examples of the following tropes:

* TheComputerShallTauntYou. Every time you lose a pizza, you are treated to a close-up of a grinning noid, complete with mocking laughter sound effect.
* ItsAllUpstairsFromHere
* InterchangeableAntimatterKeys
* InterfaceSpoiler: You know the bottom floor of each screen doesn't have trapdoors, because that would cause you to fall off-screen.
* MalevolentArchitecture. For some reason the whole building is full of trap doors.
* NoKillLikeOverkill. How do you destroy a pizza? Of course, you take out a ''bazooka''.
* ProductPlacement
* PublicDomainSoundtrack. Each of the 12 screens has a different tune, including such classics as "Music/RideOfTheValkyries" and "The William Tell Overture".
* SmartBomb. You get a handful of "noid avoiders" that clear the screen of noids.
* VideoGameLives. Five pizzas. If they all get crushed, exploded or soaked, it's game over time.
