1. Cool Spot
Spot was the mascot for the soda 7-Up. The game featured a sonic the hedgehog type on environment and was praised for its graphics and levels.

2. Yo! Noid
Noid traversed through New York using a yo-yo to battle his evil duplicate, Mr. Green. Yo! Noid was essentially a modified duplication of another Capcom game from Japan called Kamen no Ninja Hanamaru; the game play remain unchanged, but different facades were applied to the locations.
In case the pizza eating contests at the end of the levels didn’t make the player hungry, the game came with a whopping dollar-off coupon for Domino’s Pizza

3. Kool Aid Man
The game revolved around drinking from a swimming pool full of Kool Aid that also served as Sir Punch’s life bar. The object of the game was to quench the thirst of thirty “Thirsties” using the pool of life matter.

4. Chester Cheetah: Too Cool to Fool and Wild Wild Quest
Neither game was well received; the game play was considered complicated and boring

5. The King Games
The creepy king from Burger King actually did well because of the low price and fun for the games for X-Box in 2006: Pocketbike Racer, Big Bumpin’ and Sneak King.

6. Chase the Chuck Wagon
The game was a maze-based and required the player to guide a dog to attain the glorious chuck wagon. The game was only available through proofs of purchase on the dog food bags.

7. M.C. Kids
In this game, two teenage players enter the McDonalds Fantasy Land to chase after Ronald McDonald’s “fun bag” which has been stolen by Hamburglar. The game was too difficult for younger users and older players didn't like it much.
