Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom

This early adventure game uses a menu of commands to interact with the world. The areas aren't overly expansive so you can always use trial and error if you are completely stumped. The game is very light hearted and humorous, following the exploits of Sir Cucumber as he travels through the Salad Kingdom in order to save Princess Tomato.

As with most games in this genre, there isn't much action and you will instead need to rely on your wits and observational skills in order to advance. It is definitely different than most games found on the NES and isn't for those looking for fast paced action or an immersive rpg. Quirky characters and imaginative scenery dominate the landscape providing one of the most unique experiences found on the NES.
