Inside References

  • Vector Strong Bad's line "WELL, MY HEAD A SPLODE" is another reference to "video games".
  • The polygons that fall off Homestar may refer to In Search Of The Yello Dello, when Homestar mentions "pieces of you are falling off in squares."
  • The music played on the Games mouseover is a clip from the StrongBadZone Music, which can be found on the Videlectrix site.

Real-World References

  • The little pyramids from the Games scroll effect and the outline backgrounds are similar to the ones in the arcade game "Battlezone" and the game "Turok Two: Seeds of evil".
