Burgertime refrigerator magnet set.

burgertime-magnetsThe first time I played Burgertime was at Magic Mountain in California around 1984. Your character “Peter Pepper” would walk on top of giant food, and mash it down to the lower level of the maze structure until you built a complete hamburger, and the hot-dog, fried egg, and pickle-chip would try to knock you out.

It had the trope of ladders and beams just like Donkey Kong, but instead of jumping, you would throw pepper in the enemies face to stun them, and if you could time it right, you could also make them “ride” the hamburger ingredients, or squash them; fun stuff.

It was such a weird concept for a videogame, but I was enamored. I get the song from the game stuck in my head all the time. Every section of the hamburger is independent, as to be rearrange-able. I really like the way this turned out, and it looks awesome on the fridge.
