1''[[ Hitler's Revenge]]'' was an UsefulNotes/{{NES}} game scheduled to be released in 1986. For better or for worse, this game never saw release and allegedly was lost. Only 5 minutes of gameplay footage was recovered and uploaded on Website/YouTube in 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).께On November 11, 2014, [[ footage of what seems to be another version of the game]] was uploaded, along with a link to [[ 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.께The 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, presumably to get treatment before it's too late. To do so, he has to avoid multiple enemies and devious traps.께Yeah, it's not a real game. As stated in the making-of article linked earlier, the game is actually a flash animation made for a movie.께!This game provides us examples of the following tropes:께* AllDesertsHaveCacti: And said cacti are after you.* BigBulkyBomb* BottomlessPits* BringMyBrownPants: Right before the BigBulkyBomb explodes. This does not occur in ''Hoagie's Revenge''.* ChestMonster: After a boss is defeated, Cook tries to open the treasure chest prize - but before he can, the chest opens by itself, revealing a spring-loaded boxing glove that knocks Cook out cold.* DrugsAreBad: After Cook takes a mushroom from a "pi" block, he has colorful hallucinations which seem harmless - until he falls down a pit straight from the [[VideoGame/ETTheExtraTerrestrial E.T. video game]]. Then the FBI logo shows up, as well as a message stating "Winners don't do drugs".* DownerEnding: Cook never reaches the Leper colony in the end (unless that was just a BadEnding).* DrivenToSuicide: Cook hangs himself when he faces a spiral path filled with spikes and no way to get to the doorway at the end.* ElectrifiedBathtub: Someone decides to throw a TV into the ocean, with disastrous consequences for Cook.* EnemyMime: Eventually used as a superpower.* EverythingIsTryingToKillYou: Oh yes. Ducks, mimes, descending ceilings, a TV dropped in water, oysters shooting pearls, clouds dropping like anvils, and hungry trees with faces and long tongues.* HarmlessFreezing: Averted - when water freezes around Cook, he dies.* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Cook's projectiles can kill him if they are deflected back.* GunsAkimbo: Ghost used it.* ImprobableWeaponUser: Cook throws sub sandwiches to kill enemies.* KungFuProofMook: Some enemies are immune to cake throwing.* LeapOfFaith: Cook took one, but it [[GoneHorriblyWrong went horribly wrong]].* MadScientist: [[VideoGame/MegaMan Doctor Wiley]] makes a cameo as a boss.* NakedPeopleAreFunny: And they die of embarrassment.* NintendoHard* NonIndicativeName: [[EpilepticTrees Unless Hitler is the mastermind behind all the horrors Cook faces]], there is no Hitler in the game and no revenge. The existence of ''Hoagie's Revenge'' suggests that the game does have nothing to do with Hitler, but the name was changed anyway (assuming ''Hoagie's Revenge'' is the earlier version).* OrbitalShot: This occurs when Cook is trapped in a bubble, which leaves the Earth's atmosphere.* OurGhostsAreDifferent: They shoot you with guns (and one of them looks like Creator/KurtRussell).* PlatformHell* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Cook when he sees the mime.* ShoutOut: A handful of them, such as blocks and mushrooms from ''SuperMarioBros'', enemies from ''VideoGame/BubbleBobble'', the "Winners don't use Drugs" message and even a enemy type reminiscent of a character from early versions of the first VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog game.* TrialAndErrorGameplay: How is the player supposed to know what horrors lie behind the dungeon doors?* VideogameCrueltyPunishment: After Cook kills baby penguins in the snow level, the gigantic mother penguin appears to punish him.* WheelOFeet: Cook makes one before he jumps over the widest BottomlessPit.* WingedSoulFliesOffAtDeath: One type of death.* XRaySparks: This occurs when Cook is electrocuted by a TV thrown into the ocean.----
