Go To

Out To Lunch is a video game developed and published by Mindscape for Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Game Boy and Amiga in 1993.

The game's a platformer in which you play as Pierre le Chef who has to collect food that escapes his fridge in six different countries:

Not to be confused with Eric Dolphy's final music album.

This game provides the following tropes:

  • American Kirby Is Hardcore: The European boxart has the characters in a chibi artstyle, but the American boxart, while still cartoonish, looks way more realistic.
  • Anthropomorphic Food: The food that must be caught.
  • Goomba Stomp: Can be used to stun food (But that lowers the score) or to squish the uncatchable jelly.
  • It Came from the Fridge: Before the stage begins, all the food jumps out of the fridge.

  • Inescapable Net: Used to catch food, before it gets put into a cage.
  • Slippy-Slidey Ice World: Switzerland.
