Mini Games

Bug Justice involves players using a magnifying glass to roast bugs in the sun while Court Chaos puts players in control of a tennis-ball machine where they attempt to hit passersby between the eyes (or in the groin) for extra points. Change It requires players to watch nine television screens and only click the remote on channels “that don’t suck.” Wrecked ‘em Ball finds the boys raiding a condemned nacho factory for some food, trying to avoid wrecking balls and other nasty obstacles. Hock-a-Loogie is a game in which players try to spit on pedestrians from stories above and Air Guitar allows players to enjoy some tunes on the boys’ favorite instrument. Last, but not least, Thank You Drive Thru is a game in which players must serve customers at the local burger joint in a minimal amount of time.

NICE smart funny and useless.


My Abandonware - 1996

Whatever you may think of the subject matter, Beavis and Butt-head in Little Thingies is put together very well. The graphics are bright and colourful and look very well. Sound too is good. Each game is accompanied by a pounding rock soundtrack while Beavis and Butt-head make witty (if somewhat repetitive) comments. The games play well too. Mouse control is faultless and the difficulty of each game ramps up at just about the right level to maintain a challenge.

The game’s are accompanied by various quips and comments from the dim-witted duo, as recorded by creator Mike Judge.

You challenge each other to a spitting contest off the top of the high school. See if you can hit the principal walking below or the guy riding by on his bicycle.

The tennis balls are flying fast and furious in Court Chaos. Use your mad tennis "skillz," dill-weed, and send them back at those tennis-playing cornholios. Everyone in the country club is after you. Survive their evil tennis onslaught!
