''Incredible Crisis'' is a 1999 MinigameGame for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation, developed by Polygon Magic and published in Japan by Tokuma Shoten (as ''Tondemo Crisis!'') and by Creator/TitusSoftware in the U.S. and Europe. A simplified UsefulNotes/ArcadeGame version was released in Japan by Creator/{{Tecmo}}.

The Tanamatsuri family is trying to get home in time for a birthday party for the family matriarch, Hatsu. But all sorts of crazy events conspire to [[ASimplePlan make this harder than it seems]]. The game follows the other four family members through their day, and all the craziness they run into. Among other things:

* Taneo, the father, is chased out of his office building by a giant globe, falls dozens of stories, is sent careening the wrong way down a busy highway while strapped to a stretcher, and gets seduced and nearly blown up by a femme fatale coworker.
* Etsuko, the mother, is kidnapped by bank robbers, who force her to help them capture and activate a super-weapon disguised as a golden pig. She manages to snowboard to her escape, only to be forced to jump into a jet fighter and battle a rampaging teddy bear monster.
* Tsuyoshi, the younger son, gets shrunk by mysterious alien rays while hanging out at the park, and has to dodge giant creepy-crawlies and get home safely.
* Ririka, the older daughter, dodges class (and the wrath of her [[SadistTeacher chalk-throwing teacher]]) in order to go shopping, only to encounter a tiny alien UFO and get caught up in trying to reunite it with the "mother" ship.

!!This game contains examples of:
* ActionMom: Etsuko.
* AnachronicOrder: The game follows the viewpoint of one character at a time, so some things that aren't explained (why is a giant bear with Ririka's grimacing face on it attacking?) get answered later (because [[spoiler:the baby ship accidentally grew Ririka's teddy bear]]).
* ASimplePlan: Who knew getting to your house could be such a grueling task?
* BigBad: The closet thing to one is the unnamed femme fatale. While not a major part in Taneo's and Ririko's stories (although she tries to kill them, for some reason), she's the leader of the wolf-masked robbers in Etsuko's story. She forces Etsuko to steal the golden pig and decode its message.
* BrickJoke: In Ririka's storyline, we find out what she told her father to convince him to help protect the alien mothership, way back during Taneo's part of the game. [[spoiler:"I'll never clean my room again!"]]
** The giant globe that chases after Taneo in the first part of his story suddenly returns after Let's Go By Stretcher, [[spoiler: and then suddenly crashes into his house from space after the credits.]]
* ButtMonkey: The guy with the boat in Titanic Away. One would think after a while he'd just start telling people to stay away from the cork on the bottom of the boat.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The massage mini-game in Taneo's story.
%%* FourLinesAllWaiting
* GameplayGrading: Your grade is determined by how well you do in a mini-game, and an overall chapter grade is given based on those grades. Getting an overall rank of A grants an extra life, while A+ grants two lives.
** The requirements for A+ are lower than you might think. It's possible that, in a 2-minigame chapter, you get a D on one and an A on the other, yet still get an A+ overall.
* GameplayRoulette: Mini-games range from a PopQuiz, to a RhythmGame, to a SimonSaysMinigame, to a StealthBasedMission.
* HiddenAgendaVillain: Who knows what that female agent is up to? Her goals seem to change with each story.
* IncredibleShrinkingMan: Tsuyoshi's section of the game. The guy who owns the boat in the "Titanic Away" minigames gets shrunk too.
%%* MinigameGame
* PopQuiz: One of Taneo's mini-games.
* PressurePlate: Etsuko's second mini-game, where she must replace a golden pig with several items that will equal its weight, to avoid getting crushed by ceiling spikes.
* RealSongThemeTune: "We Are One" by Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra.
* RhythmGame: "Taneo's Dance Fever" and "Etsuko and the Golden Pig".
* RunningGag: The recurring "Titanic Away" game, and the giant globe.
** Also, each story ends with the family member in question finally arriving home in some absurd way, much to the shock of Haruko.
* SadistTeacher: Ririka's teacher, who throws his seemingly limitless supply of chalk at the kids who make too much noise or even ''move'' too much.
* {{Salaryman}}: Taneo.
* ShaggyDogStory: "Nerd on a Wire" has Taneo trying to get off a flagpole before it breaks. After you clear the minigame, he loses his balance and falls off anyway.
** Etsuko's first mini-game too. She successfully evades from the bank robbers, only to be captured by a fourth one standing outside the door.
* ShoutOut:
** A lot of minigame titles are references to various movies, from ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}'' to ''Film/IndependenceDay'' to ''Film/TopGun''.
** If the player fails the Titanic Away minigame, the failure sequence recreates the famous "Standing at the bow of the ship" scene from the movie.
** The underside of the mothership looks a lot like the [=UFOs=] from ''Film/IndependenceDay'' fused with a SimonSays toy.
** When Ririka is launched into the air on a bicycle with the baby UFO, they pass in front of the moon like in ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial''.
** The minigame where Etsuko has to swap the golden pig out with a bag of groceries could be a reference to the scene in ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' where Indiana Jones swaps out the the Golden Idol with a bag of sand.
* SimonSaysMiniGame: One of Ririka's mini-games. [[spoiler:The mothership even looks similar to one!]]
* SprintMeter: Present in one of Taneo's mini-games, where he must run away from a globe. A similar one is also Tsuyoshi's final mini-game, except he has to out-run a mantis.
* SquashedFlat: Happens to Taneo if he gets run over by the giant globe in "Bowling Inferno", and after getting hit by a falling refrigerator in "Elevator of Doom!"
* StealthBasedMission: Etsuko's first mini-game.
* TheStinger: [[spoiler:After the credits, a giant globe in space (with the Incredible Crisis flag) hurtles towards a house...]]
* ToBeContinued: [[spoiler:...and ends with "To be continued". Unfortunately, there was never a sequel.]]
* WidgetSeries: You've read this far, so this one should need no explanation.
