Most of these are for the ZedX (which I am fascinated with), but there's some for the C-64 and one for the AtariST that I found particularly amusing.

Used to love these.

 

Anyone seen the UFO abduction in Flying Disc event on C64 Californa Games?

 

Or tried typing in a swear word on computer of C64 Tau Ceti...potty mouth's pay a high price :-)

 

Then you had the hidden cratures in ST/Amiga Populous that would appear at random and start doing things to the landscape...

 

 

Had a UFO abduct my saliors in PS1 Overboard as well :-)

Here's a video of the C64 Cali Games one, which is pretty neat:

 

With Tau Ceti, if you type a curse in the game (like “f--k” or “c--t”), you’ll get a message saying, "Just because I'm a machine doesn't mean you can insult me.  You'll be SORRY in 10 Seconds...." and the bottom of the screen will have a scrolling message saying, “Same to YOU with Bells on”.  The screen will start shaking and go black in 10 seconds!

Speaking of "easter eggs" the new game being released at Fest West this year has one too!
