Waffle Boy's Mountain Adventure was a Flash game developed by Smashing Ideas and released on Postopia in 2004.

All searches for the game lead to its sequel, Waffle Boy's Jungle Adventure, which has shrouded its predecessor. For a while, only the Jungle one was available to the general public.

Availability[edit | edit source]

While the game was available for many years, it has been lost due to time. The reason why this game was not mirrored by any other website (in contrast to its sequel, Waffle Boy's Jungle Adventure) is likely because Waffle Boy's Mountain Adventure contained a large number of files, and other websites probably didn't want to spend time getting all of them when there were many other smaller and more easily accessible Flash games available.

A Smashing Ideas employee named Brian Burke was contacted at LinkedIn for the game, and he said that the client (Kraft) would have had the final files for the game, and Smashing Ideas no longer had any of the files for the game that dated that far back.

On February 28th, 2021, LMW user LoganTheHammer discovered that the game was found and fully playable on Flashpoint,[1] a software that archived thousands of Flash animations and games with the goal of preserving them after Flash was discontinued in early 2021. While several of the files were lost to time, they were recreated,[2] and the game is now fully playable.
