The Gizzle Wap and The Strange Red Tree is a game for Atari VCS by Mountain King.

Deep in the JThainian forest, in the clearing where the Zazzle Flies play a Strange Red Tree took root over night. It made an unsettling hum and gave off a noxious odor poisoning many of the flies. Camy, the strongest of his brood sought help from the defender of the woods, a small bouncing creature known as the Gizzle Wap. He would know what to do.

The Gizzle Waps solution was simple: Remove the Strange Red Tree. But there was another problem. Coinciding with the appearance of the red tree came the Myrmica a race of mindless insects that feed upon the inhabitants of the forest. Even worse the Myrmica never come alone. They serve the Invicta. Unlike the Myrmica, the Invicta are cunning and tenacious. They will not be satisfied until they control the entire forest or see its destruction. The tree is most certainly their machination.

The plan to remove the tree and defeat the Invicta was not as simple. The only creatures strong enough to pull the tree out of the ground are the Pegsi. The Gizzle Wap would attract the Pegsi to the clearing with cloud fruit and convince them to remove the Red Tree. Once the tree has been removed, the Invctas magic will be weakened and their lair should be revealed. The final step will be to confront the Invicta.


1. The Red Tree spreads an invisible cloud of poison when you remove the tree from the clearing. The Gizzle Wap is not immune. You will continue to take damage until you find and reveal the Invicta’s lair. You don’t have a lot of time.
2. The final fight with the Invicta Prime is more dynamic. There is more than one way to defeat him.
3. Changed the score font to a custom font “Leaf” on both the title screen and game.
4. Lightened the colors of the Culex and the Wasp so they can be seen better on real hardware.
5. Added the Zazzle fly to the Final cut scene.
6. Tweaked the back round slightly in the final cut scene.
7. Added the Gizzle Wap’s friends to the post attract scene.
