NOT IF I DON'T GET THE COPYRIGHT FIRST!Homing Chicken is the name of my Aqua Bats cover band.
"weald \WEELD\ noun.38. Jumping Weald
First things first: No, it’s not “Jumping World”. “Weald” is definitely what it says and apparently that was intentional.
That would make sense, wouldn't it? But I have no idea. The things that pop out of the holes are clearly supposed to be bugs.What is that on the title screen of Knock It, some kind of mole-man?
The area you jump through in this game meets neither of those definitions! (Though I was vaguely wondering if maybe it was supposed to be the name of the little robot dude. Perhaps he has a wheel instead of legs, so they named him "Wheeled"? Or they just liked the word--see below.)"weald \WEELD\ noun.
1 : a heavily wooded area : forest.
2 : a wild or uncultivated usually upland region."
Is it just me or does that look like Mario's head pasted on another body?

It's a clone of the Famicom game Flying Hero, a personal favorite.
46. Fire Man
This was a rare game that I couldn’t determine the providence of. (Though, honestly, it’s probably more Nice Code. It certainly feels like a clone of an Atari game.) In a very strange approach to fire-fighting, you fling one of three firemen into the air and bounce them around (in Arkanoid-clone style) while they grab people out of windows. Treasure or power-ups might float down from the windows to distract you from your bouncing fireman (who also might be colliding with birds or blimps). If you miss bouncing them, it’s game over and back to the title screen.
I learned something new today! Thank you!It's a clone of the Famicom game Flying Hero, a personal favorite.
This just sounds like a euphemism if you see human feces in the middle of a highway.
56. Road Mound
It took me a minute to figure out what was going on here, and then I realized that this is a Pipe Dream clone! You’re just building road instead of pipes. It’s another one I couldn’t find mentions of online, and as such is also completely new to us.
Reminded me of Toaplan's Snow Bros.That Snowball title screen graphic looks super familiar, though I don’t remember from what ottomh.
What Halloween Spirit labels it's April Fool costume.
61. Spring Jester
You’re a bouncing…jester? "Grasshopper" seems more appropriate, though I suppose he could also be a jester by trade. You can bounce to various heights, though the controls are suitably bad that I can’t tell what makes a short jump and what makes a high one. You have three lives, but there don’t appear to be any obstacles that could make you lose them. There’s also no timer. You just jump around grabbing coins until you get bored. Originally released as Power Robot, and also as Kangaroo.
Best prog rock album name and cover
69. Worm Dream
And a new contender for favorite title arrives! This is a hack of the Nature Clan game Pindable Crystal Ball, which is extremely similar to Swing/Spring World we saw as #62. Roam the map collecting prizes while avoiding obstacles (and have fun guessing which is which!). There was also a release of this called Adventurer.
So you're trying to get into a floe state?
Originally released as Frantic Mouse, where you were a mouse trying to jump from cloud to cloud. (There’s also a version called Jumping Kid.) Here, you’re a penguin trying to jump from ice block to ice block, but the mechanism is the same. Miss a single jump, it costs you a life. This is a game of mostly waiting patiently for the floes to align.
