30 Hidden Gems #18: Tomba!


Welcome to my blog series! This is 30 Years, 30 Days, 30 Hidden Gems. In honor of my 30th birthday, I'm posting about a different lesser-known video game every day in November. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy it. If you want to start at the beginning, check it out here.

Release Date: 1998
System: Playstation

Tomba was on a demo disc that I had
That demo was nowhere near bad
But when I went to the store,
That had other games galore,
There was no Tomba, and that made me sad
Now, fast forward some time
PSN on PS3 rectified this crime
Available to get
Now to assuage my regret!
And the full game would now be mine
Tomba is a platforming game
About a boy with a bright pink mane
An adventure so big
Where you fight evil pigs
And the quality here is insane
Now is it perfect? Not quite
There are a few flaws in sight
Sidequests are a dozen a penny
And the bottomless pits one too many
Though that doesn’t quite stop the delight
It’s a game where creativity flows
And I implore you, fellow gamer bros
Tomba is great
So why would you wait?
Go play it! Go on, go!
Thanks for reading! My plan is to make this a series, one entry every day this month. I hope you'll stop by tomorrow for the next entry.

About Adam Pone of us since 10:34 PM on 04.28.2013

My name is Adam. I've been gaming as far back as I can remember, ever since the NES my parents owned when I was a wee lad. Writing has been a passion of mine for almost as long, and I've made quite a hobby out of combining the two pastimes.

I have a very wide taste in gaming. I'll give just about anything a shot, regardless of age, genre, or hardware. I like to think of gaming as an entertainment medium in the same vein as literature and film rather than a simple toy.

When I'm not writing or playing, you might find me in church, in the woods (probably on a four wheeler and/or carrying a gun), or in my room playing my guitar.
