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. Fixed a minor bug where the Gizzle Wap did not animate after beating the Invicta. He’s happier now too.
2. Game Play update. Dropping off fruit at the tree is now optional. Accumulative fruit count no longer goes down. This is to accommodate people who don’t read the instruction manual. You know who you are. If you do drop off fruit at the tree your accumulative fruit count will increase by the number of fruit you have in your possession. (Caution) The Pegsi will still take your fruit so it is possible that you may be left with no fruit for the Invicta fight.
3. Accumulative fruit count is now level based. 10+(current) Level
4. With the left Difficulty switch set to A, you may only carry 2 Cloud fruit at a time.
5. The tree “laughs” at you when you are defeated.
6. Crickets can be heard in the Zazzle Clearing if you beat the game.
