    Humongous is the developers who created putt putt, pajama sam, spy fox, and freddi fish. I played the all the time as a kid. I kind of wish they made a port; I've seen it on the wii so it's not implausible.

    Also, this game would make an excelent port since it would utilize the touch screen well

    Oh God. Thanks a lot, you brought back the memories. I use to love Spy Fox. Now I can barely stand it. It's so cheesy.

    But everyone needs a bit of cheese in their gaming diet. I'm currently looking for my old cd's to download it on my computer :)

    I played the demos :)

    Tbh I was more of a point-and-click kind of guy if you know what I'm saying.

    Holy crap, the memories. I think I had two of the Putt-Putt games and a couple Freddi Fish ones too. Seriously, it was the first thing I did when I came home from school was boot the computer up to load those games.

    We were so innocent back then. Now it's shoot-em-ups and massive explosions that pique our interests.

    I completely forgot about these games. I probably played through the Pajama Sam where he has to rebuild some weather machine like 20 times

    Wow I love those games, in particular Spy Fox and Pajama Sam. They were all so well thought out and I loved playing all the multiple scenarios. Favourite Spy Fox game was probably 'No Assembly required' and 'You are what you eat' for Pajama Sam.

    So I'm not the only one around here who played the crap outta these games...

    Btw, Spy Fox was undoubtedly the best. The second one alone was the best adventure game Humongous ever made. The other two were good (well, the third one was kinda mediocre, but not bad), but the second was the best. Pajama Sam followed pretty closely behind, and Freddie Fish a good distance behind that (never was a huge fan of that one).

    Simply put, if they put some games on the App Store, I think they'd sell pretty well. In the meantime, if you're jailbroken, all of them can be played on the iPhone using ScummVM. Just copy the files from the disc to a directory and navigate to it in Scumm.
